    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    I've been with the company a couple of years now. Market maker, leader and innovator. Fantastic people and the best is yet to come! If you want to be blaze new trails this is the place to be. Incredibly bright and talented leadership, while it's getting big very easy to access management to the highest level. More opportunities across the county and world. Training and communications are a high priority with the company. Company is also very flexible in allowing employees a quality of life. Produce and contribute and you will be rewarded. The best company I worked for in the past 25 years.

    Cons

    None that I can think of....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communications, especially with the remote employees
