Pros

Great challenges, smart engineers, cutting edge technology company focused in give more value to its customers in every release.

Slow paced company. Some teams does not have enough time to train/mentor new hires, that means you should be a good self-learner.

    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.

    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
