    Pros

    Amazing perks and benefits. You can tell the company really cares about its employees. There is clear communication and a lot of transparency. From top to bottom, you really feel aligned and connected with the company at large. It's no wonder people dedicate a good chunk of their careers at this company -- upwards of 10, 15, and 20 years, you'll find some veterans here that don't get jaded. Rather, they keep the energy alive. It's a great training ground for those just starting their career. Succeed here, take advantage of resources, find a mentor, and you'll be set to achieve wherever you end up.

    Cons

    Can be high pressure at times, but the work culture and environment make it worth it, and even inspire you to push yourself because you know you'll feel good in the end...and the company will recognize the work you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

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

    Pros

    Some of the best pay, benefits, and technology out there.

    Cons

    If all you care about is $ then this place can be great. Beware of the leadership in some of the BUs. Lots of re-org under leaders with no direction or much experience. Found it hard to excel, grow and stay motivated when feedback and goals were not tracked. This place has excellent potential however if there's a steady stream of those exiting a BU, you need to look at who's on top.

    Advice to Management

    As everyone knows most people leave a job b/c of a bad boss... might look more into those employee satisfaction surveys.

    Pros

    Very competitive compensation, excellent benefits. good work life balance

    Cons

    Poor management (in my BU). Constant job shipping to India. Management plays favorites and has no problem laying off or forcing out strong performers for political reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying so much about diversity and inclusion and reward employees who work hard and get the job done.

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation policy, beautiful campus, good cafe.

    Cons

    Passive aggressive middle management, cisco-style processes, inability to innovate in QE organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire managers who can protect the interest of their subordinates and can still meet company objectives. Our organization only has people who care about customers and not the employees' ambitions
