    Easy Interview


    Extremely drawn out. Lack of communication. Lots of shareholders have to be contacted. Entire process allegedly takes 90+ days. After getting through to the second round, had 3 offers from other companies. If I wanted to continue to the 3rd round with VMware, there would be probably 30+ more days that I would have to wait. Who knows how long it would take to get an offer after the 3rd round.
