    Pros

    VMware is a fantastic example of how an established company provides the employee, the partner, and the customer the tools and environment of growth and sustainability. No matter what position a person holds within VMware, respect is a the key element to the company fabric. The goals are understood, which translates into a platform of creativity and a sense of belonging. I couldn't wait to get up in the morning and get to work to be in this environment that VMware provided. I've never felt so productive and successful with any other company.

    Cons

    The only minus to the company is how hard it is to get promoted. I'm concerned that they maybe losing brain trust because deserved promotions are far and few.

    Advice to Management

    Think long-term regarding budgets which will support long-term growth. I understand a software company needs to follow the fluctuations of hardware companies, but, don't let solid talent and brain trust exit because of short-term goals. These people really don't want to leave VMware.

    Pros

    Very fast moving, lot of opportunities to move between teams, good commuter benefits and great brand recognition

    Cons

    Many layers of management within the company

    Advice to Management

    I understand the need to bring in outside talent, but try to not introduce needless layers in management.
