I worked at VMware as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The University Relations threw a ton of events for interns, including a trip to Angel Island in San Francisco and a wine-tasting event at the San Jose Tech Museum. Lots of free stuff such a computer bag, t-shirt, even pajamas. Work was extremely low-stress and hours were totally reasonable (max 40 per week, sometimes less). Intern housing was fantastic and was great for making friends. Plus, the pay was top notch.

Cons

Intern projects wern't that meaningful. A good number of interns worked on testing frameworks or visualizations.

    Pros

    The people are great, culture is very casual reminiscent of dot.com startups. Company overall is a good company.

    Cons

    Don't forget that one single department doesn't represent the whole company. Invest in the growth of your employees within the company vs. losing them to external competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the company culture is consistent throughout all your offices

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

    Pros

    VMware has a fantastic campus and interesting technical vision - great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    The company often has schizophrenic changes of direction, incessant feature moving and repacking to the products which causes customer frustration and confusion, selling too many futures and not enough of the 1.0 versions of buggy software and complex internal process ( with respect to understanding and serving customers )
