    Pros

    The company is in a great place to grow exponentionally. The work environment is great, people are great, and everyone truly has passion to improve VMware.

    Cons

    The company is growing fast and the company is feeling the growing pains. The great close knit feel of the company is dying. New management is being hired from large companies like Cisco and Oracle and management is trying to push its big company burucratic processes on VMware employees.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the company should start promoting from within and not necessarily look to hire high profile individuals from this large tech companies, else they are going to kill that great VMware vibe that has made the company successful.

    Pros

    Great technology - virtualization benefits anyone who uses a computer which is pretty much everyone in the world. Virtualization is all about reducing cost and energy and who wouldn't want that!
    Great culture - we work hard and we play hard. It's always tough balancing your work and life but if you have the support from management and they respect that you do have a life outside of work, then it just makes a bit easier to juggle both.
    Smart people - I've met some of the smartest people here at VMware and being around such smart people makes your job so much easier!

    Cons

    Company is growing at a very fast pace and the necessary support infrastructure is still in the catch up phase.

    Advice to Management

    Give more insight/direction on how our day to day job maps to the overall goals and objectives of the company
