I have been working at VMware as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

A great company for those who want to thrive in a cloud computing environment - very bright and positive people to work with

Internal teams/companies have alot of political issues that cause bottlenecks within the flow of some projects.

Advice to Management

Business processes need streamlining and tweaking for more productivity and efficiency within the organization.

    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great products. Amazing gravitas from customers
    Smart team and go-getters
    Company with the right ingredients to effect an IT transformation

    Cons

    Incoherent vision, confused employees
    Wild wild west inside. Too much worship of rockstars at the cost of product adoption
    No great benefits for employees who joined after 2010

    Advice to Management

    Get the vision stitched well together
    Over communicate to empower the employees
    Stomp down on rockstars and make them collaborate.

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

    Pros

    Great teams that contribute tirelessly to the company goal. Good salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    Focused more on selling, than on the folks that work behind the scenes. Outsourcing personnel to cut costs, at the expense of internal people.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what VMware was like pre-IPO. So many people loved working there; now, those who have left are glad they did...
