Pros

Working at a leading technology company that is always innovating is a great motivator. Being an R&D Engineering recruiter allows me to see multiple different product teams across our business units and continually work on challenging positions. I get to compare our compensation information to other top tech firms in the Bay are know we are competitive. Culture is a big part of this and VMware's culture is EPICC (Execution, Passion, Integrity, Customers, Community) and from my experience the willingness to help others is a common trait. I have not run into many folks with over inflated egos. Work environment is good and we frequently have happy hour events where people from different teams get together.

Cons

I have been here for over 3 years now and there are little cons to discuss. We have challenges in many different areas like any company whether large, medium, or small. I can only speak to my experience though.

    Some great people, but mostly disorganized and poorly executed politicking

    Pros

    There are some great people working for VMware, who want to do a good job

    Cons

    Excessive churn, confusion, rework, and disagreement on every Marketing project burns workers out. There are many toxic individuals who don't actually understand their job, and who make life miserable for those who work underneath them or must partner with them.
