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

Pros

tons of smart people, amazing customers, excellent position for growth, to a large extent a merit-oriented corporate culture

Cons

Sometimes length of service at the company trumps reason;
HR org seems confusing - payroll and comp review stretches out longer and longer each year - towards 6 months after the review period.
High level eng talent attrition has not been replaced with similar talent.
Too much "not invented here" among eng org.

Advice to Management

fix the review and comp adjustment process;
recruit the best engineers in the industry;
