    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company is still very much growing. It owns the virtualization market and this should enable it to grow for the next several years.

    Cons

    VMware has been late getting into the cloud. There is now a good VMware cloud solution but VMware is behind Amazon in this area.
