Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good flexibility in work hours, great facilities and outdoor spaces in Palo Alto.

Cons

Lack of diversity in the employee pool. Too much of the technical staff is junior and from abroad (a large majority of technical staff is Indian).

Advice to Management

Get a program in place to find "ass-kissers" that do nothing to add value in the company. Too much technical staff and mid-level managers gets promoted on social skills alone.

    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Continues to be at the bleeding edge in some technology areas You work with smart people if you get into the right team

    Cons

    Upper Management is still learning how to keep things under control. Most of the original people have left, and the ones remaining behind have a bad attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Make hard decisions, and stick to them. Make people accountable and responsible for their mistakes.

    Pros

    no comment for this company.

    Cons

    prefer not saying, but quite a few.

    Advice to Management

    help the growth of employee's career path, instead of the growth of workload.
