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

    Pros

    Great working environment and opportunities. Friendly staff and they genuinely try to look after their staff/ask for their feedback more than many other compaies.

    Cons

    I can't think of any real cons, apart from potentially room to grow in the company after a number of years. However I'm sure with more acquisitions, it will offer more opportunities in the future.

    Entirely revenue focused Poor communication from management and little thought given to effect of decisions on employees Limited progression opportunities in many roles - they tend to hire for new skills and then cut people in the regular annual redundancies each Feb rather than develop internally

    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.
