    I worked at VMware full-time for 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.

    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.

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay, very good benefits, good work life balance, down to earth genuine culture.Very little politics and you can just get on and get things done. New MD has made some really positive change. New GB Leader is really dynamic, great female role model & really improving the partner approach

    Cons

    In the regions it is smaller so therefore can be harder to progress your career in the traditional sense, however there are lots of tools and scope for you to choose your own adventure as they tend to be more flexible than some of the other big vendors. Very little negatives!
