    I worked at VMware

    Pros

    Great people, fantastic ideas, good customers. Company provides good physical work environment and solid compensation. A pioneer in the field and respected

    Cons

    Newer products are not well integrated into the whole product set. Tries to hang on to the start-up culture but the business is beyond that and needs to grow up and become the mature organisation that it's customers need. Your experience will depend greatly on the quality of the management above you.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the products and understand the problems the customer is trying to solve. Be consistent in your decisions.
