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

    Pros

    Great place to work for many reasons; Compensation, Benefits, work/life balance. Everyone that I get to interact with is helpful in anyway possible. It's wonderful to work for a firm where other employees really want to help and see peers succeed.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about. Love working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from lower ranks to the top. Continue to show that Work/Life balance can be achieved even though most do not know how to make a 'balance' work for them, thus the complaints seen here at times.
