I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

still some smart people, great products and a phenomenal strategy. There's still cowboys who are getting stuff done, you just have to look hard to find them.

Cons

way too many overlapping projects and products, no one willing to make the hard decision to stamp out the overlaps. The consensus driven culture lives on but with so many people and decisions to be made, it can be paralyzing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make some hard choices but be transparent about why you're making them.

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They take very good care of their people. They are building something remarkable and innovative. I love working with the people at VMware. Everyone is trying to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Processes for carrying out cross-functional projects aren't mature due to fast growth. Sometimes is much more difficult to get things completed than one would expect. Telecommute policy isn't very lenient.
