Current Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Palo Alto, CA

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

Pros

- good salary and benefits, campus
- pretty interesting work trying to bring something unique to the marketplace
- recent reorg finally brought much needed focus and clarity on what the company wants to be

Cons

- some bad decisions leading to massive wasted engineering efforts
- no uniform process followed across teams
- slowly losing some of its shine
- politics

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Customer focus is what made vmware great. Off late, some of the decisions are not totally aligned with customer needs leading to wasted efforts. Please bring laser like customer focus to all the project decisions.

    Former Employee - Staff Engineer
    Former Employee - Staff Engineer

    I worked at VMware full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Few exceptional Engineers & Manager(s) (but rest are pathetic & selfish )
    -Exciting Technology & competition
    -Competitive Pay

    Cons

    -CPD BU Leader's main priority is to develop/promote Beijing Team leaving rest of the Teams (Paloalto, Bangalore, Sophia) to Hell!
    -No employee retention
    -Engineers are treated like Pigs (Extremely sorry to compare with Pigs) No value to personal life.
    -No work life balance, even after working during weekends, Managers expect engineers not take any comp off for the weekends spent on work.
    -Too much of Politics.
    -In-order to promote their level in hierarchy, Sr. Manager(s) hire another manager.
    -Managers can do anything to elevate their position. Best example-One of the engineer(Sr. MTS) who resignes the company after 1+yr of work in CPD as Lead, gets call back to CPD as Manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean all the slack, specially Managers and Directors.
