Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to Management

Focus on training and mentoring of new hires. Try to make this company more agile.

    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.


  2. Plenty of opportunity

    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.
