Pros

People. VMware consistently hires sharp people. The company and the product are easy to represent.

Cons

Large growth adds pain when trying to navigate the organization. Enough of the people in the organization are new that there are times that you don't get answers just because the person doesn't know who to ask. Fortunately, everybody is bright and there are no problems that can't be overcome.

Advice to Management

Add further structure to the customer support and problem resolution paths for internal employees to help streamline processes for customers where warranted. I've heard often that there was no resolution on a problem. To be fair, I haven't seen it first hand but it comes up enough from customers in conversation that it should be mentioned.

    Pros

    Engineers are top notch, you'll learn a whole lot working there. VMware is pretty much the leader in virtualization, so you'll gain experience in a red-hot industry.

    Cons

    Executive level is disconnected from engineering. Frequent reorgs for seemingly unnecessary reasons.

    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 Management

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