Pros

Lots if interesting projects, academically-oriented, if you are into that. The research conducted here is interesting and advanced.

Cons

The company is suffering from the rapid growth over the past several years. Development methodologies are fine, but the infrastructure is breaking down under the weight of the enormous complexities. Software development is becoming eclipsed by process and productivity is slipping. Starting to feel like Microsoft.

    Pros

    Employees are given a lot of autonomy. Fast growing company with opportunity to take on assignments with variety. Takes employee feedback seriously and tries to act on it. Customers love VMware.

    Cons

    Almost impossible to get promoted as they like prefer to hire from outside the company. Employees are loaded and over worked. Middle level managers need better training on how to lead people.

  2. Great for people who life a fast paced environment.

    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
