    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at VMware full-time

    Pros

    I'm always surprised at how much a company of it's size truly seems to put employees as a top priority. There's no question they are in the business of making money but as an employee you don't feel like an afterthought

    Cons

    A company that big can struggle to pivot to newer ideas. They are a heavily waterfall driven environment and it can feel like software development in 1992.
