I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 10 years)
It is a great software company to work for and build your career. Some areas not good but there are a lot of good and upcoming areas or the really old areas that made VMware what it is.
Too much bureaucracy and politics has crept into the organization at director and VP levels.
I interviewed at VMware (Palo Alto, CA) in January 2018.
Recruiter contacted on LinkedIn asking for my resume. He sent HackerRank coding challenge telling I have to finish it by end of next day. Coding challenge had 4 questions with 60min. And each question were page long to read, which in itself would take 10+min to read and understand each question and they weren't simple enough to be completed in 5min. Will be evaluated on number of passed answers and not on your code/approach/thought process, so don't try to solve all questions with partial answers but make sure to submit at least 3 questions with no errors. I submitted with 2 perfect answers and 2 partial and was rejected in an hour.
