    Pros

    I have been working at VMware for about 4 years. The welfare is great and salary is good. The company encourages work-life balance
    The company values innovation and encourage the employees to own their interested projects.
    We have vSAN and software designed network published in 2014 which greatly raised the value of the company

    Cons

    VMware used to have very innovative products and features in virtualization area. But in the cloud computing area, VMware is not that strong and attractive as Amazon.
    Since the 'mother' company is EMC, which is a 'Big' company and this will somewhat slower the speed of VMware's decision, changes and business orientation changes

    Advice to Management

    Should raise and encourage even harder on innovation.
    Better go individually, without EMC:)

    Pros

    Good benefit, work place.
    Many training that fit your position well.
    Personal growth is OK.

    Cons

    Some times grow too fast and the existing culture were not maintained well.
    They like junior managers more than senior engineers. If you are going to be in engineering discipline, you can never match the ones go managing.

    Engineers are the core value of a tech leading company.
