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

Pros

VMware as a company is great. Superb innovations from most corners of the company. The engineers are super smart. The campus has been fully updated and it is beautiful. The company is incredibly environmentally conscious, this is great!!

Cons

The EUC management team continues to be not up to par. There are several VPs who should be fired immediately for the following reasons:
1. Frequent and regular deceptive practices and lying to employees
2. Unbelievably blatant cronyism favoring certain employees
3. Lack of market understanding. Still completely clueless about why the competition is leading
4. Sabotage employees career growth because of self insecurity
5. Absolutely no accountability on performances

Therefore, strongly recommend that you do not join the EUC business unit at all cost until they once again clean house.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management at EUC had better fix the internal problems ASAP or risk losing some of the best talents. The morale within the team is at an all time low due to the fact that a couple of VPs are all about themselves and their cronies. These VPs are all too willing (and are already working) to jeopardize the entire business in order to satisfy their own benefits.

Enough talk about how Jack Welch should be the model. Time to take concrete actions. Eliminate these bozo VPs before it is too late.

    Pros

    Fantastic product company, lots of smart folks, lots of energy / passion for technology.

    Cons

    The company once slim and trim has grown many folds; bloating the middle management. Consequently its a Managers Carousel - you work for a manager for on an average 6 months before they get promoted (or) move to a different group taking with them your effort and rapport and you watch your effort and hard-work go in-vain.
    In short back to Square one :).

    Beware some times this may cause people getting stuck in a given grade for years; causing mass exodus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please shed the fat and keep the organization flat.
    It has one of the greatest engineers, but bad management will force these engineers to leave.
