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 Management

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

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    -Hostile work environment
    -CPD is junk work starring at log files and dealing with H1B's esp from China.
    -Political and toxic workplace.
    -Managers that are useless but suck upper management's rears are promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Trash the entire CPD in Palo Alto. They are useless.

    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 Management

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