No opinion of CEO

I worked at VMware as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Mentor is kind, patient, and informative. Managers are very kind to interns. The company benefits and pays for interns are very good: free housing and transportation. Overall, VMware is a great place for starting a career in software engineering.

Cons

VMware is a big company now, so many routine tasks and not challenging enough.

    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of cool things to work on, from bit-fiddling in the hypervisor, to big data analysis and machine learning in the management software. Smart co-workers. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Enterprise software company, long product release cycles. Especially in the bottom layers of the stack, it's hard to turn things around.
