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

Pros

I've been here a while - have seen through multiple CEOs and the company has grown rapidly with many opportunities. Product sells itself and a fairly fun environment (in the beginning) - lots of new whitespace to attack and have an opportunity to define the cloud computing space.

Cons

Lost a lot of the innovation and have been too complacent regarding competitors. Workplace is becoming more political and egos are getting in the way of strategy and innovation. Career opportunities are not that great either for the old timers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of middle management, conduct a full review of the company

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing technology to work.
    Rich technical resources to gain knowledge.

    Cons

    Frequent Management changes
    Frequent policy/Strategy change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the middle management number lesser possible, as the strategy is getting diversified because of the depth in hierarchy. Give more Focus on the work at hand instead of expecting beyond work. Then There is a goof up in the regular work itself.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
