Disapproves of CEO

I worked at VMware full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Few exceptional Engineers & Manager(s) (but rest are pathetic & selfish )
-Exciting Technology & competition
-Competitive Pay

Cons

-CPD BU Leader's main priority is to develop/promote Beijing Team leaving rest of the Teams (Paloalto, Bangalore, Sophia) to Hell!
-No employee retention
-Engineers are treated like Pigs (Extremely sorry to compare with Pigs) No value to personal life.
-No work life balance, even after working during weekends, Managers expect engineers not take any comp off for the weekends spent on work.
-Too much of Politics.
-In-order to promote their level in hierarchy, Sr. Manager(s) hire another manager.
-Managers can do anything to elevate their position. Best example-One of the engineer(Sr. MTS) who resignes the company after 1+yr of work in CPD as Lead, gets call back to CPD as Manager.

Advice to Management

Clean all the slack, specially Managers and Directors.

    trying to reinvent themselves as something other than a virtualization company

    Pros

    It is a great place to work. People are extremely smart and technical. Great pay masters. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    They hired a lot of people over the last 2-3 years and lot of politics has creeped into the system. I hope they change and fix it soon.
