Disapproves of CEO

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.
