    I worked at VMware full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are interested in learning new technologies from many different vendors, it is hard to beat working here. The benefits are way above average, and most of the management is very helpful with accommodating any needs or requests.

    Cons

    The salary is not anything to get excited about---it was the # 1 complaint I heard from others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be a wise move to try to keep people at the company instead of letting your talent walk away because there doesn't really seem to be a career path.

    I worked at VMware full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    VMware is a firm with great people and products, with a superior working environment and fantastic benefits. They are growing fast and still extremely profitable with only a few significant business challenges in the near-term.

    Cons

    No real cons at all. Perhaps they are diluting their talent pool a bit with over-zealous hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For mid to long-term, VMware needs to figure out where VMware goes in the SaaS/PaaS/IaaS world beyond selling "box software" to enterprises consolidating spare cpu cycles. Streamline and simplify the management and monitoring of VMware environments.

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    -excellent training and on-boarding
    -flat management structure in support services
    -very collaborative environment
    -excellent feedback of employee value
    -strong emphasis on satisfying customers with tools provided to do so

    Cons

    -rewards (financial, benefits, etc) for good performance have been missing for some time (possibly on the horizon)
    -limited senior resources
    -limited personnel resources to deal with current call volume

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -look carefully at plans to account for immediate crisis before implementing them - short-term solutions are digging into the rank and file and seem to be increasing turnover when we most need to hold on to senior resources. bring in more support engineers to account for both turnover and increasing call volume as sales grow.

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    Company has innovative technology with a tenancity to win. Most everyone we meet wants to hear about the technology and how they can deploy it. It's fun to represent the company with it's amazing growth.

    Cons

    Tons of movement within the company means that it's difficult to know who is who since it's so dynamic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The support renewal process is broken and needs to be fixed. Easily 75% of the complaints I field are focused on renewals. With such a visible process it should be fixed.
