I have been working at VMware

Pros

The company is making adjustments to clean up a lot of the prior problems. For a recent IPO and shift in senior management team VMware is providing a great opportunity to work with not a lot of hand holding.

Cons

Gaining 15lbs in the first couple of months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep in touch with the employees.

    Has become very top heavy -- 20% of the staff are doing 80% of the work. Little opportunity for advancement.

    Pros

    Disruptive technology
    Clear market leader
    Satisfied customers overall
    Some smart people still there

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement - lateral only
    Don't start at the bottom, you'll be buried
    Really bad IT systems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire individual contributor Vice Presidents! They get lost, frustrated, and create more work for the rest of us.
