I worked at VMware full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Despite the IT geekiness of VM products as a whole, I've met some really good people who cares for the company and each other as individuals. At VMware, senior mgmt tries hard have programs to recognize and celebrate people's accomplishments.

Cons

Still a very large company mentality , hard to move fast and implement change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move past "war-time" old school way of doing things. Hard to resonate with new generation of employees.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Customers still happy to engage. The technology is still great, but pressure from alternatives is setting in.

    Cons

    Management is done by checking boxes. Training is based on an all or nothing model. There are no individual training paths. Promotions are based on politicking and not on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the value in your people and find out what makes them excited.
