FilterSan Mateo, CA
I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)
Still has a culture of technical innovation and "engineering driven" approach but that is gradually moved by management and business/political considerations. Salaries are definitely on the higher end and hours can be flexible, benefits are great and various on campus extra activities are plentiful and often fun.
Last 2-3 years there was a gradual shift in Company culture from a "large startup" to a more IBM/Oracle style corporate giant with increasingly political atmosphere. Recent acquisition of parents company EMC by Dell and related realignment of workforce continue to add to feeling of somewhat uncertain future for VMware employees.
