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

Pros

Technology driven yet strategically focused. Large company but still retains a startup vibe/culture. The best campus in the valley, hands down. VMware promotes from within.

Cons

We are not as "sexy" a company as some of our competitors (Google, Amazon, and even Microsoft). As with most enterprise software companies, very long product cycles. Dependencies on the platform and/or other products.

Advice to Management

Figure out a way to decouple products from one another while ensuring tight integration between them

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, at least the old part, Good benefits, Job security.

    Cons

    Politics, chaotic (given company size). vmware is an amalgamate of acquisitions with lots of way to integrate them in. Company is too inert to effectively learn from past mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Holding on to incumbent non performing upper management staff poisons troop morale. Put result based metrics in place to help separate the wheat from the chaff.
