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

Pros

GREAT Benefits, It seems that every time I turn around, they improve benefits and add something else. Flexible work schedule, and working from home is great.

Cons

Work load is heavy. Communication is often lacking. But they are working on communication improvements.

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

    Pros

    Reasonable amount of autonomy, Good salary and work environment, Some very smart co-workers (and some not so smart).

    Cons

    While I was there there was an immense hiring boom and money was thrown around recklessly. Unfortunately, part of them fixing this problem was laying off 900 people. I didn't get the feeling that the upper management did what it took to get strategy messages to the people doing the work. All the managing that was done was bottom to top.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the lower-level employees who actually do the work.
