Pros

Work with some of the industry's best developers.
Challenges and list of todo items never stops.
Build one of the cool products here.

Cons

Revenue stream has slowed down.
Company with 14k+ people is turning VMware into a slowly moving company.
Compensation is not what it used to be earlier.

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

    Pros

    1. Good culture so far
    2. Balanced life
    3. Nice pay
    4. Great place to sharp your skills and give back to the products
    5. People are nice

    Cons

    1. Must be focused. No one is responsible for your career. You can stop learning and get lay off someday and can't find new job if you just keep complaining and do/learn nothing.
    2. Do what you have to do and LEARN. Don't be a brown nose and tried to cater to boss but learn nothing.
    3. Need more drive force to innovation. Don't talk but DO.

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

    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.
