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 Management

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.

    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.
