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

Pros

technology, people, campus, recognition, customer base, install base, industry standard

Cons

Getting work done is difficult. Too many levels of management, rigid releases, mid-life crisis culture

Advice to Management

Be more like Netflix and Amazon if this company is to survive next phase in its lifecycle.
