    I have been working at VMware full-time


    VMware Foundation empowers employees to give back to their local communities... both time, talent and 100% match of donations. They even sent $30,000 in free software to a local non-profit because I simply asked to help them - sincere, meaningful impact. Palo Alto campus is outstanding, with a great vibe and culture! Great technology and solutions that truly save companies millions... and saves the planet, by reducing power, cooling and floor space.


    Virtual Office / Home Office is very much removed from the outstanding campus culture in Palo Alto... so keep this in mind. Starting to be a BIG company now.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at VMware.


    I talked to them on campus and they told me to apply online. I was sent a hackerrank coding challenge about a week later and after completing it they invited me to an on campus interview. After the on-campus, 90 minute interview I had a second round telephone interview with my potential manager.
