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

    Pros

    Opened a lot of doors. Fast-paced, dynamic organization when I worked there (2008-2012). Many perks to retain talent.

    Cons

    Some unqualified people were promoted to upper management. Most of that have been removed now.

    I have been working at VMware full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, great technology, beautiful campus, good benefits.

    Cons

    VPs and Directors are dictatorial and arrogant. Revolving door at the VP level and endless re-orgs - new executives bring their entourages with them. They clog middle management and dilute the culture. If you have ideas, experience, and career ambitions you will be frustrated at VMware. Unless you sit at the Director-level or above, you can't get involved in discussions that affect your future. You will be told what to do - and if you don't like it, you will have to find another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people doing the work. Vision should be informed by reality. Promote from within - stop hiring from outside, stop tweaking the organizational structures, it's killing morale. Good people should be rewarded for their performance and included in discussions that affect their futures.
