Amazing growth opportunity if you pick the right team

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at VMware

Pros

Experience on the ground floor shipping code and working with mature teams.
Growth opportunity - VMware has many code bases and moving parts and you may get to touch them all
Great compensation and benefits around the world
Great flexibility with telecommuting and moving away from an R&D office
Good internal infrastructure that promotes efficient development.

Cons

Extremely rapid growth and loss of corporate culture
Acquisitions do not integrate and "join the family" even when code and tools can be shared. It's painful to see the wheel always get reinvented.
Depending on your team, growth opportunities may be muted. You may be expected to keep your head down and toe the line. A good manager is key.
Endless construction and few eco-friendly transit options (e.g. shuttles.)

    With the inflow of cash, company is not really sure which direction to head in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Be more careful with extravagant spending. Employees would prefer hikes to concerts on campus.

    Pros

    GREAT Benefits, It seems that every time I turn around, they improve benefits and add something else. Flexible work schedule, and working from home is great.

    Cons

    Work load is heavy. Communication is often lacking. But they are working on communication improvements.
