Current Employee - Staff Engineer  in  Palo Alto, CA
Current Employee - Staff Engineer in Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at VMware full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Constantly shifting landscape with new challenges everyday

    Cons

    below industry standard pay and a difficult climb if you remain in the same role without jumping around different parts of the company.
