I have been working at VMware full-time

Pros

Fantastic pay and benefits - probably one of the best overall compensation packages you can find. The executives also genuinely encourage the employees to give back to their community.

Cons

Some of the organizations and their leaders are overly political and put personal ambition above team success and respect for people. The vast majority of the Engineering teams are still run like a startup, but that does not scale given the current number of employees, the majority of whom now reside outside of Palo Alto.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the employee surveys and take action to ensure that the BU leaders share the same values as the executive team. Focus on Execution over flashy Vision that has yet to be delivered.

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good technology all round. Sales kick off is good.

    Cons

    Politics are rampant, the policies are enforced based on your relationships with upper management. Lies and more lies, it seems the higher you get in the organization, the more people become untruthful. Good luck getting a VMworld pass..lol, you need to either present, work in lab or be on the floor in a booth.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of 2/3 of your management. It's funny that the supposed brain trust from Stanford and this is what you get - backstabbing employees.
