    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good pay and excellent benefits
    - Free snacks and good quality food at cafeteria
    - Opportunities for career advancement - many senior people leaving.

    Cons

    This was once a company with great culture of innovation and cutting-edge technology. It has degenerated into a sad state, where mediocrity rules. New products are being developed based on old, obsolete technologies (hello Flash and ExtJS).
    Most of the talented engineers have already left. Some senior (and I mean "senior") engineers are still there - unable and unwilling to adopt evolving technology landscape.

    Advice to Management

    Stop deluding yourself - focus on Sales will not save the company. This is a pure technology company - engineering talent is what matters above all. No talent = no company.
