Quality Internship With Intelligent Coworkers

Member of Technical Staff Intern (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA (US)

I worked at VMware as an intern

ProsLots of very smart people
Good office space
On par with other Bay Area companies in terms of salaries and perks (somewhat)

ConsLots of politics at/above middle management, though hasn't affected engineering work as much
Slow and frustrating release/development cycle

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce the politics and focus on innovation internally (in terms of development and agility) as opposed to bickering for position
