Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Architect

I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I'm on my second stint and been here over 7 years. I love the culture, community, and ethical corporate focus. And VMW continues to deliver real innovation across many technology segments.

Cons

Things move fast and everyone is brilliant. You have to bring your a-game every day.

Advice to Management

Continue to add diverse talent. Don't always promote from within. Don't always hire people from the same Partner orgs. Diversity is key to our success!

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I have been working at SmartThings full-time for more than a year

Pros

SmartThings has a huge platform with high volumes of traffic, a plethora of technologies used, and brilliant engineers.

Cons

It can be demanding, the world of IOT is moving extremely fast.

Advice to Management

Reliability engineering should be a first class concern. New features are great, but reliability engineering should be a first class product concern that requires continuous investment as it has the... most direct impact on our customers.
