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

Pros

I've been here a while - have seen through multiple CEOs and the company has grown rapidly with many opportunities. Product sells itself and a fairly fun environment (in the beginning) - lots of new whitespace to attack and have an opportunity to define the cloud computing space.

Cons

Lost a lot of the innovation and have been too complacent regarding competitors. Workplace is becoming more political and egos are getting in the way of strategy and innovation. Career opportunities are not that great either for the old timers

Advice to Management

Get rid of middle management, conduct a full review of the company

    Pros

    Company is market leader in the best IT sector of today, continuously adapts to competition with acquisitions and innovation.

    Company is growing very quickly.

    Good working environment, best compensation.

    Cons

    Indian management especially in finance is very bad, they would go out of their way to harm employees in case you are not in their good books.

    Advice to Management

    Having a stronger HR department with power to implement the policies on paper would be great for employees.

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

    Pros

    Amazing technology to work.
    Rich technical resources to gain knowledge.

    Cons

    Frequent Management changes
    Frequent policy/Strategy change

    Advice to Management

    Keep the middle management number lesser possible, as the strategy is getting diversified because of the depth in hierarchy. Give more Focus on the work at hand instead of expecting beyond work. Then There is a goof up in the regular work itself.
