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

    Pros

    None really. Campus looks good is perhaps the only PRO

    Cons

    Too many managers especially in CPD Palo Alto. Some managers have 2 or 3 employees. Consider CPD view team that has had historically few employees per manager. Same is also true for vCloud team. Some managers have absolutely no technical skill.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate the managers who have too few employees. Also CPD is really not core team and they dont produce much. Eliminate customer support in Palo Alto as it does not have much ROI.

    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots if interesting projects, academically-oriented, if you are into that. The research conducted here is interesting and advanced.

    Cons

    The company is suffering from the rapid growth over the past several years. Development methodologies are fine, but the infrastructure is breaking down under the weight of the enormous complexities. Software development is becoming eclipsed by process and productivity is slipping. Starting to feel like Microsoft.
