Pros

Excellent technology, great culture. Management is great at letting you have a family life and other priorities. Because they are such a virtual culture, commutes are non-existent and face time in the office doesn't matter.

Cons

They still think they are a startup, and so there are a lot of back end systems and processes that are broken or constantly changing. Also, they focus on their engineers and employees in Palo Alto at headquarters, not so much on field based employees.

Advice to Management

Vision and direction are very important, and not just from Diane. There are few communications regarding employee vision from other members of the management team, at least not out here in the field.

    Pros

    VMware is a global leader in virtualization technology and a great company; People in VMware are really smart and I like the team spirit and atmosphere in the company. The interview process is very strict and only smart people pass successfully the interviews and receive offers; The product line is very interesting - VMware is building very innovative solutions and this require a lot of innovation and creativity. The products and solutions that VMware develops are industry changing and it is very challenging to be a part of this; Senior Management is very reasonable and leading the company in a very right directions; The work-life balance is really great. I haven’t done any overtime last 1 year; Compensation and salary is very competitive compared to other companies in the valley. The same applies for the benefits;

    Cons

    sometimes the push is too hard and the deadlines are very short. This is mainly caused by bad planning;
