Pros

Great people who really believe in the technologies that they're working on.

Cons

The culture is going thru a growth phase as the company moves from several hundred people to several thousand. Processes, procedures and habits that used to work well don't scale. The company needs to adapt to this while not losing the core of the culture.

Advice to Management

They need to continue to bring in people from the outside to compliment the talent they have. They need people who are willing to shake up the status quo so that VMware can continue to grow and thrive in the face of ever fiercer competition (especially from Microsoft).

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for VM Ware are that they are located in a beautiful city on a beautiful campus with beautiful facilities. The C E O is the best. . .she is very helpful and very good leadership. I would highly recommend this top notch company to any prospective job-seekers.

    Cons

    The downside of working at VMWare are the salary which are most of the time - - non-negotiable. While the benefits are pretty decent they are not the best and the quality of life aspect of the job is not that great either. Some of the other tech companies offer more comprehensive packages that promote a better quality of living. . .

    Advice to Management

    To the Senior Management I would say keep up the good work. Don't stop believing...hold onto that feeling! The IPO was fantastic so let's keep up the good work. Very well run company!
