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

Pros

Good benefits, good campus with nice gym, well stocked break rooms and overall if your new that is okay.

Cons

The company execs are very conceded and think they work for a 50B a year company not a 50M.

Advice to Management

Remember we're not a 50B a company, we need to remember that.

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some very talented, very nice people. All depends on the group you're in. Pleasant physical environment. Good pay, including bonuses.

    Cons

    If you're in one of the not-so-good groups, it is like living in a tribe of primitives from 10,000 B.C. Strong personalities set the direction. Whoever yells loudest, throws the most effective tantrum, or interrupts the most, that's who sets direction. Managers talk smack about other employees during your 1:1 (backstabbing anyone?). It feels like middle school with the people who suck up to the manager getting the promotions. Anyone who thinks for himself is shunned. Individual contributors are simultaneously told to "think for yourself" and "follow the conventions". Managers meddle in individual contributor work while ignoring their own managerial work. Performance reviews are late and without constructive input. No one knows why they got the bonus (or lack of) they got. Abuse of manager power can be epic.

    Advice to Management

    Use the data you collect in your employee surveys to get rid of the bad middle managers.

    You have the ability to run your own territory and have the ability to make good money. Good benefits as well

    Constant change, Management treats employees like children

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like peers not students
