I have been working at VMware

Pros

*good virtualization software for the datacenter.
*good customer base.
*first to market w/cloud infrastructure soltions.

Cons

*new CFO made big moves along with new CEO resulting in major stock crash!
*some say it allows EMC to pick up more shares, they are wasting their money as Microsoft is giving HyperV away for FREE!!!
*EMC is commodotitizng storage which means customers only need half of their VMware licenses.
*sersiously, you laid off around 10% of your workforce and Cisco, Juniper, and other tech heavy weights picked most of them up already ...nice way to recruit for the competitor!

    Pros

    1. Great people
    2. Great technology
    3. Good perks
    4. Some interesting programs in place to motivate people to take risks.

    Cons

    1. Moves slowly. Heavily weighed down by processes to make a predictable release. Consequently, innovation is limited to only some pockets within the company
    2. Attrition effects the morale of employees

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

    Pros

    Compensation + Benefits. Nice campus. Smart + helpful people.
    I work in the Networking & Security business unit and it has got pretty good work culture. You have a freedom of choosing projects that you want to work on.

    Cons

    Weak release management. Need more transparency with respect to decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop doing periodic re-orgs, stop acquiring "cloud" start-ups and concentrate on core virtualization.
