Current Employee - Senior R&D Manager in Palo Alto, CA
Current Employee - Senior R&D Manager in Palo Alto, CA

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

Pros

Beautiful campus, at least the old part, Good benefits, Job security.

Cons

Politics, chaotic (given company size). vmware is an amalgamate of acquisitions with lots of way to integrate them in. Company is too inert to effectively learn from past mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Holding on to incumbent non performing upper management staff poisons troop morale. Put result based metrics in place to help separate the wheat from the chaff.

    Current Employee - Product Line Manager in Palo Alto, CA
    Current Employee - Product Line Manager in Palo Alto, CA

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

    Pros

    Technology driven yet strategically focused. Large company but still retains a startup vibe/culture. The best campus in the valley, hands down. VMware promotes from within.

    Cons

    We are not as "sexy" a company as some of our competitors (Google, Amazon, and even Microsoft). As with most enterprise software companies, very long product cycles. Dependencies on the platform and/or other products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to decouple products from one another while ensuring tight integration between them
