I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Employees are given a lot of autonomy. Fast growing company with opportunity to take on assignments with variety. Takes employee feedback seriously and tries to act on it. Customers love VMware.

Cons

Almost impossible to get promoted as they like prefer to hire from outside the company. Employees are loaded and over worked. Middle level managers need better training on how to lead people.

    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.
