    I worked at VMware as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, loved my team, nice location, surrounded by trees, lunch on site, espresso machines

    Cons

    Schedule not communicated or well thought-out, somewhat reactive. A bit too much bureaucracy to get anything done in a reasonable amount of time. Also, VMware monitors web usage with a tool that slows down work. It requires you to log in to access sites it doesn't recognize, which is almost anything. It was faster to access information online (our product is web-based) over wi-fi than to use the network, so i would unplug the network to do general work and then have to plug in to print something. Pretty ridiculous, besides making people feel like they're kindergarteners needing supervision.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your network and get rid of the web usage monitoring system. Also, ensure teams have the same goals so they aren't working against each other. When temporary resources are pulled from engineering to work on a project, they aren't as committed as those permanently on the project, which makes it very hard (expensive) to accomplish anything.
