    Former Employee - Senior Member of Technical Staff in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at VMware full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of extremely bright individuals, many opportunities to make a real difference. It was actually the one company I was sad of leaving (which I did for completely external reasons).
    The pay is pretty good too (definitely above market), and performance is rewarded.

    Innovation is still in the company's DNA, even though the crazy growth diluted it significantly.

    Cons

    the company doesn't really know how to handle the myriad of small offices all around the world. Cooperation with headquarters is difficult, which leads to a lot of frustration.

    Also, the work is so interesting, that work/life balance actually requires active monitoring !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in many cases, reducing the number of middle management layers would be far more efficient

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

    Pros

    Great people, great products and great vision. VMware is full of amazingly talented and motivated people who are focused on making things happen. VMware's products are awesome and market leading and the vision of the SDDC is very real.

    Cons

    Internal IT can be a little challenging, however the people more than make up for it. Being remote and figuring out all the ways that people communicate and systems that need to be connected to can be a little tough, but given time and helpful co-workers it works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
