    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.

    Pros

    VMware offers a competitive salary and decent benefits.

    Cons

    The company is going through growing pains right now, with a lot of restructuring and confused middle management. Top that off with lack of product direction and poor morale, the future is looking bleak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a spring cleaning in the middle-manager layer and promote from within in order to keep the positive company values alive.
