I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

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.

    I have been working at VMware full-time for 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

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

    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.
