I have been working at VMware full-time

Pros

> Senior Management is top notch, sincere and accessible (pretty impressive for a multi billion dollar company)

> Pay is competitive

> Direct management is supportive and truly cares

> I do not take their medical benefits, but they are amazing and cost effective

> All "A" players, at least the ones I work with. Everyone is self-motivated and super intelligent

Cons

> Virtual office can be challenging for those who are not disciplined and motivated.

> Due to rapid expansion, there are still some processes and structure that is being developed on the fly.

> Not a con, but if you don't like change and dynamic atmosphere... don't apply here.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work! It is clear you care, and that is the most important aspect of motivating your employees.

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

    Pros

    Good managers, good access to resources and learning opportunities. Smart, accessible coworkers that are willing to help you learn the industry/tools. Pay is good. Work life balance very good, in my case. Might change from team to team.

    Cons

    Management vision a little bit confusing. Restructuring has apparently happened a few too many times. Coworkers generally older - mean age somewhere in the 30s if I had to guess. As a younger guy, this is a little awkward.

    Socially, people tend to stick with their teams and not branch out. People focused on work, so don't expect lunchtime conversation to go in another direction.

    Advice to Management

    Hire younger if possible. Try to keep things steadier and define vision in a clearer way rather than keep talking around it - it sounds like you haven't defined it yet and are just shotgunning words at a page.
