    I worked at VMware full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The pay and possibly the work life balance.

    Everything else. Mediocre benefits package and cronyism in management make this a very average job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing the talented people the door. Your management is killing your talent pool.
