    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great vision and leadership. VMware continues to innovate even has they become a very large corporation, where most large corporations acquire companies vs innovating.

    Cons

    The innovation can take a long time. It also seems some business units don't communicate with each other. I call these tier 1 company problems. You find this to be true at any other company...

    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been here a long time and if you want to experience high tech - this is the place. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    The competition is fierce so you have to know what you are talking about. You can not fake it till you make it at VMware. Your street creed - or lack of it - is apparent pretty quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reinforce EPIC2 values. Highlight those that exemplify it and get rid of those that pay lip service to it.

    Like any other company the success of the business unit depends on the leader. some BUs are very successful and focused and some are not.

    Advice to Management

    Get more frequent feedback regarding your mid-level managers and clean up/promote according to your employees feedback.

    Pros

    A culture that cares about employees, shareholders, customers and our communities. VMware rewards performance and has attractive benefits. We are encouraged to grow our capabilities and provided opportunities for career growth. Whether working with Habitat for Humanity, building artificial hands or the next great software product, VMware encourages and supports our efforts.

    Cons

    As VMware grows into a much larger organization, some additional bureaucracy is to be expected. Very much a quarterly driven sales organization, would prefer a longer measurement cycle of a year, but is probably unrealistic for a public company in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on customers and employees, invest in people and emerging technologies.

    Pros

    Open work culture, pay benefits ( i bet if not better but no less than top 2-3 big names in industry), Weekly lunch and fully stock kitchen (snacks). Opportunity to work in some cutting edge technologies in very early stage.

    Cons

    Internal team movements. Team building events like team outing.
