    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.
