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

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, company tech is ahead of the game

    Cons

    Management can be short-sighted, politically driven, and generally frustrating to deal with. Management by shiny object is often true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read a few popular business books and actually apply the learnings. Don't kid yourself into thinking employees don't see through your games.
