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

Pros

Despite the IT geekiness of VM products as a whole, I've met some really good people who cares for the company and each other as individuals. At VMware, senior mgmt tries hard have programs to recognize and celebrate people's accomplishments.

Cons

Still a very large company mentality , hard to move fast and implement change.

Advice to Management

Move past "war-time" old school way of doing things. Hard to resonate with new generation of employees.

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

    Pros

    1. Good culture so far
    2. Balanced life
    3. Nice pay
    4. Great place to sharp your skills and give back to the products
    5. People are nice

    Cons

    1. Must be focused. No one is responsible for your career. You can stop learning and get lay off someday and can't find new job if you just keep complaining and do/learn nothing.
    2. Do what you have to do and LEARN. Don't be a brown nose and tried to cater to boss but learn nothing.
    3. Need more drive force to innovation. Don't talk but DO.


  2. "VMware provides an enriching, satisfying and pleasant experience."

    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work with some of the industry's best developers.
    Challenges and list of todo items never stops.
    Build one of the cool products here.

    Cons

    Revenue stream has slowed down.
    Company with 14k+ people is turning VMware into a slowly moving company.
    Compensation is not what it used to be earlier.
