    I worked at VMware full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company name still have value in the valley.
    Products are high-tech, innovative.
    Easy 9 to 5 work. Can get away by doing no work and just responding to emails all day.
    Beautiful office and facilities.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities.
    Pathetic middle managers who are technically inept, political and interested in advancing their own careers.
    Senior management doesn't seem interested in making any real improvements.
    Top talent has left already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are beyond any advice. Busy milking the cash cow.

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

    Pros

    Good pay. Good benefits. The culture is fantastic, but that varies greatly from team to team. Overall it was good until management shifted and started doing a bunch of ridiculous reorganizations.

    Cons

    New management doesn't know or care what customers want. The process is full of cruft. Teams aren't rewarded for exceeding targets, instead they're chastised regularly by executive leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace Pat and bring back somebody who understands the market.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
