    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 have been working at VMware as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are great, culture is wonderful and the company is a sustainable, green company.

    Cons

    Contractor policy within certain departments. (i.e. Marketing)

    Advice to Management

    If the company wants to retain good talent, they'll need to provide head count to departments that really need them.

    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!
