    I worked at VMware full-time

    Pros

    The main campus is wonderful with great facilities and lots of perks. There are great employee benefits including a nice 401K match and also "matching gifts" for charity. Many organized functions and events for employee participation.

    Cons

    The growing size has made the atmosphere is very political. There is too much middle management that are not good managers. Valuable contributors are getting overlookedThere is excessive bureaucracy that hinders productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Need to keep focused on customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction.

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

    Pros

    -Beautiful campus with an amazing workout facility
    -Early opportunities to grow
    -Salaries are very competitive

    Cons

    -Questionable management
    -Too many management layers with little strategy and direction (especially with career growth)
    -Very little trust in employees, management seems more concerned about politics and less about leading a team.
    -Bosses, not leaders

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting as a boss and start acting as a leader. We understand you brought in old colleagues, but they may not be the best and brightest employees. Start to innovate, think outside the box and don't be afraid of failure.
