I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of development options.

Timelines too strict to produce a proper set of features with high quality.

Advice to Management

Get rid(around) of strict timelines, so we can produce quality products with cool features.

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

    Pros

    Nothing outstanding at all, maybe furniture.
    Really hard to remember something good about this company.
    Maybe other headquarters are not such bad but the one where I've worked is really disappointing.
    They hiring people with poor technical knowledge as trade off with salary, as a result it becomes pain to work there.

    Cons

    Extremely bad managing layer
    Not skilled employees
    No attention to details
    Lack of respect
    Lack professionalism
    Company values
    Salary
    Personnel
    Perspectives
    Career growth

    They should seriously think about what type of employees they are hiring

    Advice to Management

    Hiring people with poor technical background in order to save a bit money will eventually bring the company to a crisis. They seriously should think about it. The employees inside the company soon will lose their motivation to work for two main reasons 1) it is hard to work with noobs 2) There is no feasible career growth.
    So be wise and not miser.
