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

Pros

Fabulous work life balance. Little to no work on weekends. Great culture. Continues to grow in size so a lot of opportunity to try different jobs. Moves very fast so you are never bored. Great direction from senior leadership. Everyone I work with is top notch and over achieves therefore you do not have to pick up the slack for someone else

Cons

Hire too many people in management roles outside of the company instead of promoting from within. Limited travel budget so I meet with my team in person only once a year. The rest of the time is via webex

    Pros

    None really. Campus looks good is perhaps the only PRO

    Cons

    Too many managers especially in CPD Palo Alto. Some managers have 2 or 3 employees. Consider CPD view team that has had historically few employees per manager. Same is also true for vCloud team. Some managers have absolutely no technical skill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate the managers who have too few employees. Also CPD is really not core team and they dont produce much. Eliminate customer support in Palo Alto as it does not have much ROI.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
