Pros

Many great people who believe in the company.

Cons

Lots of primadonas work here making it very difficult to do the right thing. They have been there a long time, and any change for the better is considered a threat. As a result, they will use their political connections to have you fired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you cater to the primadonas, you will never be able to take the company to the next level. Upper management is keeping the company stock is stagnate by not taking the advice of their new employees.

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

    Pros

    Company is in a great position for the cloud computing business. Nice compass, good pay, lots of training.

    Cons

    Too many re-org. Trying to be a big company, but sometimes lost its direction and become more and more political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure that the re-org impacts employees as least as possible. And make sure that the new manager will look at the review and provide opportunities to the new comers.
    Make sure that direct manager has less power to decide an employee's fate.

    Pros

    some brilliant individuals remain stifled by management and constantly evolving priorities

    Cons

    collective attrition of brilliant individuals that were piecemeal to a special sauce; propelling forward as opposed to moving along
