I worked at VMware full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good compensation, interesting technology. Smart people at the execution level

Cons

1. Lack of executive leadership
2. HR department are free floaters that don't do anything
3. No work-life balance
4. Agreed, promotions are based on who you know and not what you do or how well you do it.
5. Executive management sit on a kings chair and don't really care if things are going well or not, and they don't want to hear anything.
6. Incompetent exec leadership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

draw your conclusions, if you care.
