    I have been working at VMware as an intern

    Pros

    Very good life and work balance company, managers are always willing to help. The atmosphere of my team is great.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at VMware as an intern

    Pros

    - Good technology stack to work on
    - Personal Mentor is assigned

    Cons

    - Full-time conversion headcount for the team is not known until the end of the internship (Even 1 or 1.5 months after internship)
    - You end up working hard for nothing
    - I wish I could have moved forward with other internship offers instead of VMware (or someone could have informed me this happens every year)

    Advice to Management

    - Found other teams HR not being cooperative after my team did not receive headcount
    - Disappointing, please respect candidates
