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

Pros

Nothing outstanding at all, maybe furniture.
Really hard to remember something good about this company.
Maybe other headquarters are not such bad but the one where I've worked is really disappointing.
They hiring people with poor technical knowledge as trade off with salary, as a result it becomes pain to work there.

Cons

Extremely bad managing layer
Not skilled employees
No attention to details
Lack of respect
Lack professionalism
Company values

Perspectives
Career growth

They should seriously think about what type of employees they are hiring

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hiring people with poor technical background in order to save a bit money will eventually bring the company to a crisis. They seriously should think about it. The employees inside the company soon will lose their motivation to work for two main reasons 1) it is hard to work with noobs 2) There is no feasible career growth.
So be wise and not miser.

    I worked at VMware full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Leading in the virtualization domain
    Great Work-Life balance
    Good culture

    Cons

    The company grew too fast and tried to aim on too many broad goals
    Many senior veterans left the company recently (during 2013) which raises the obvious question - why ? what do they know ?
    All the interesting developments seems to stay predominantly in PA.
    Too much technical debt

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
