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

Pros

Some extremely talented and hard-working people, you can learn a lot from them. Very nice work and life balance - unlimited vacation. Opportunities to explore different aspects of the company products and cutting edge technologies. Good total compensation package - may not be as good as other big names but still very good. Office is on the beautiful hill of Palo Alto. Much better commute experience through 280 over 101.

Cons

Career growth is questionable given such a large company. Some middle managers coming from other big companies tend to hire people they knew from their past companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find some exceptional and visionary middle managers. They can make correct move of the products as well as promote good work of the employees.
