I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

A great product with a real ROI for customers. Leadership has heart and true vision. Leadership truly cares for the team. I have worked for many companies but VMware just keeps on getting better

Cons

Growing fast so at times infrastructure falls behind. At time you loose time dealing with the issues associated with lack of internal systems to support day to day tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep thinking out of the box!

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, high industry buzz factor, competitive salary, telecommuting (for some, not all, depends on location and job title)

    Cons

    Insufficient infrastructure tools, constantly changing processes, lip service ONLY in terms of work/life balance, huge pressure to "meet the numbers" - i.e. you hear words like "blood commit" - it is ALL about the number, middle management tends to shoot first based on hearsay (as opposed to getting all sides of a story) and ask questions later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes you have to slow down to speed up.
