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

    Pros

    I have been in VMware for many years and the experience has been really good. Benefits are good and the company offers a good work life balance.

    Cons

    There are a lot of org changes which is quite annoying and hinders productivity,

    Advice to Management

    Let there be changes in the organization but an ever changing organization definitely is not going to be fruitful and people working there are not going to be happy.

    It's getting "big" as far as employee numbers
    More "hands in the pie" and decisions take longer and you need some good negotiating power.

    Cut back on meetings and senior leadership need to let people run free again to achieve great things FAST!

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

    Pros

    Good culture overall. But BU wise it can vary.
    Total compensation and pay are competitive.
    Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Higher management in few BUs are not good.
    They are bringing too many old school methods and spoiling life life ban lance of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more towards automation. That will ease out life of employees, bring innovation and also more importantly helps to increase the quality.
    Being in software company everyone should be writing code be it developer or qe.
