    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
