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

Pros

Great technology, progressive company, well established/stable, excellent reputation for quality products and staff. Nice facilities. It's fun working on big, real world problems.

Cons

VMware is moving into defensive position to protect market their market share, and this is changing the stance the company is taking in the market as well as how they are operating. This is a natural position for a company like VMware that dominates their market, but is not what I was looking for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to put out leading products that support IaaS, and work with the "federation" to develop new revenue.

    Pros

    Great market leading technology and very aggressive compensation and benefit packages.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary depending on management. Seems like because of the explosive growth, some managers got into management just because they were at the right place at the right time and not because of management capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some management needs to realize they manage people and not just sales numbers. Because the company is growing a lot of these managers do not have visibility to the higher ranks, but bewared of turnover and morale challenges that are hiding behind a great quarter performance.
