    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
