Former Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Palo Alto, CA
Former Employee - Senior Systems Engineer in Palo Alto, CA

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.

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

    Pros

    Friendly smart people to work with. Emphasis on philanthropy and collaboration. Flexible schedule, Unlimited vacation time. They feed you!

    Cons

    You work hard, and some times a lot of hours at times, which can be tough on work-life balance. Despite being 15 years old, it feels like a startup sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't wait until folks are giving notice as the first opportunity to fix the issues they bring you.

    Former Employee - Graduate Intern in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at VMware as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, Virtual machines and the cloud integration is just phenomenal and is the future of technology. HQ at Palo Alto is a fantastic campus and with lots of more facilities under construction. Compensation is upto the mark and company takes care of good bonuses and other perks.

    Cons

    It has now already grown to a significant size, so u may not get a very true-startup experience. So if u want to settle down it's a best place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management at US is doing well. But global reputation can be improved.
