    I worked at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at VMware full-time

    Pros

    Mature, experienced tech company with many amazing products under its belt. Flexible working arrangements, travel opportunities. Culture is mostly positive and vibrant.

    Cons

    Far too focused on revenue and numbers rather than their customers' satisfaction or employee development. Work/life balance can easily slip if you let it. Career progression is possible, but very difficult as middle management never move.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time nurturing your staff and making them the best they can be rather than how many billable hours you can get out of them. Focus on customer satisfaction.
