    Pros

    - Good Benefits
    - Good Product
    - Respectful CEO who cares about people

    Cons

    One of the newish manager's is on a mission to get rid of men from the company and hire females only. It's pretty evident in recent hiring decisions that preference is towards an "All Girls Club" style mentality. Diversity in the workplace is great, but when it's taken to the extreme it makes for a toxic culture. Speak to many ex VMware people who have left the company, and they will say this new leader is why they left VMware.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better management staff, stop hiring females only to try and win diversity awards and hire on merit instead.
