I worked at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great campus, customers and products. People are passionate about the the technology.

Cons

Poor leadership. A lot of smart, unrecognized people led by not-so-capable leadership. There seems to be a huge gap between who general employees recognize as great and who leadership recognizes as great. Those that are good at managing up wins.

Advice to Management

Don't be fooled by employees that are good at managing up. Take time to get to know, listen and recognize the employees that are looked up to by their peers.
