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

    Pros

    The culture is amazing! Work-life balance is one above all other companies. They really invest in your success and training; you will get help with every single question. They really strive to promote from within. The products sell themselves as just about every company uses our software. The cutlture, again, is amazing. The cafe is fully stocked w/ snacks and drinks and available anytime! 401(k) matching, stock options, great health benefits. Pay is great, above industry average, for sure!

    Cons

    There really are no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work; you've built a company that is amazing and a culture that is unbeatable.

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great culture from a company that cares for its people, many chances for advancement, management is awesome, cool technology, partners are excellent

    Cons

    commitment to cloud, specifically their public cloud. Customers are unhappy with how little VMware did to advance their product even after they said there would be big advances

    Advice to Management

    Partnering with Amazon and Google is setting up VMware to be overtaken. Those companies will take all VMware customers and move them into their environments. Gelsinger is making a mistake.

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reward for the effort you put in
    Personal growth is nurtured and encouraged
    Fast movement up the latter is possible
    Networking and team work is a must

    Cons

    In a network centric culture favoritism can easily make people who struggle be overlooked. With how team oriented everything is people who struggle or aren't a good fit can bring down the whole team they are associated with.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work as a team and take into consideration opinions and ideas voiced by those around you. Rise together!
