I worked at VMware as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The University Relations threw a ton of events for interns, including a trip to Angel Island in San Francisco and a wine-tasting event at the San Jose Tech Museum. Lots of free stuff such a computer bag, t-shirt, even pajamas. Work was extremely low-stress and hours were totally reasonable (max 40 per week, sometimes less). Intern housing was fantastic and was great for making friends. Plus, the pay was top notch.

Cons

Intern projects wern't that meaningful. A good number of interns worked on testing frameworks or visualizations.

    I have been working at VMware full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent people, salary, benefits, culture. I have yet to run into anyone unfriendly or unwilling to help out. Communication is excellent and there seem to be lots of opportunity to shine here. Internal tools are extensive and technical employees have access to a wealth of internal information and people. The company seems to truly strive for ease of communication and accessibility of information.

    Cons

    The onboarding process could be a bit more extensive but other than that, nothing negative.

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

    Pros

    Lots of exciting challenges and the opportunity to shape your career
    Smart, caring and genuine people who are passionate about their own work too
    Concerted effort to ensure core values is a part of our every day at VMware
    Beautiful campus in Palo Alto - amazing cafeterias, breathtaking green landscape which tries to maintain the oak and pine trees before the expansion (when the campus is done, it will rival the size of Disney Land!)
    The turtle pond...need I say more.

    Cons

    Demanding schedules and workload
    You really have to drive your own work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your people and show them you care by being present and supportive
