    Pros

    VMware is a firm with great people and products, with a superior working environment and fantastic benefits. They are growing fast and still extremely profitable with only a few significant business challenges in the near-term.

    Cons

    No real cons at all. Perhaps they are diluting their talent pool a bit with over-zealous hiring.

    Advice to Management

    For mid to long-term, VMware needs to figure out where VMware goes in the SaaS/PaaS/IaaS world beyond selling "box software" to enterprises consolidating spare cpu cycles. Streamline and simplify the management and monitoring of VMware environments.

    Pros

    Generous salary, good benefits. Employees are generally happy to work at VMware and optimistic about the future of the company. Beautiful campus, pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    Make sure you work on one of the company's core products. The mood in End User Computing is very different from the rest of the company. There's less confidence about being able to build products that are useful to VMware customers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what the company does best.
