    Pros

    VMware has some good products and had a lot of potential to be a great company. The base pay and benefits are decent. Lovely campus and physical surroundings.

    Cons

    The worst middle management that I have ever seen. Tech Pubs in particular is rife with bureaucratic politics, favoritism and unethical managers asking employees to help them spy on other employees Departmental politics hurt VMware because they foster a culture where those who invest long hours in office politics are rewarded rather than the innovaters, team players and hard workers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop protecting terrible middle managers/directors. Allow 360 reviews, every employee should have the opportunity of reviewing their manager as well as their director. Enforce this policy right across the entire company without any exceptions.
