    Pros

    Brilliant Engineers
    Opportunities to learn - tons of resourceful people you can learn from
    Benefits - great health plans, great 401k options, and great perks, MSDN accts for each engineer, Safari Books account for each engineer

    Cons

    - Politics and senselessness rampant throughout engineering leadership
    - engineers cannot regularly work from home.
    - New executive team is more focused on stock price than innovation
    - Segmentation of products - product teams are too silo'd from eachother.
    - Currently, in the midst of an exodus of great talent from Steve Harrod, Bogamil, as well as middle management. The smartest leaders are leaving...but it doesn't stop there. VMware is losing the most talented engineers to start-ups and other corperations (IMO) because innovation has dried up. Engineers are tired of integrating software and want to get back to building fresh ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on innovation and stop copy-catting. VMware has fallen behind the innovation train and it's using its bank account to acquire IP to catch up. Then, burning engineering time integrating acquisitions into the product portfolio. VMware needs to get back in the leadership role of the industry. They've been doing this for a long time, but it's become the norm
