    I have been working at VMware full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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