I worked at VMware full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits, great growth potential, innovative.

Cons

Gobbles up and spits out acquisitions

Advice to Management

Please think about your acquisition strategy before bringing on loads of people you don't intend to keep around. Companies are more than just a technology, they're full of people whose livelihoods depend on those jobs.

    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 Management

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


  2. Innovative company that always strives to be at the top of the industry.
