I have been working at VMware as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Projects provide opportunity to make a real impact
Strong team bonding
Excellent pay
Strong intern program
Free intern housing
Transportation pass
Free shuttle to work

Cons

Intern housing changes every year and may or may not involve a long commute.
Projects are very independent and you get as much experience and guidance out of them as you want and ask for.
Intern hack-a-thon lasted two weeks and did not provide a lot of motivation for participants to finish -overall could have been run better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be nice to have some more training on current technologies such as prototyping techniques and javascript libraries.

    I have been working at VMware full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.
