I have been working at VMware full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

A great product with a real ROI for customers. Leadership has heart and true vision. Leadership truly cares for the team. I have worked for many companies but VMware just keeps on getting better

Cons

Growing fast so at times infrastructure falls behind. At time you loose time dealing with the issues associated with lack of internal systems to support day to day tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep thinking out of the box!

    VMware is a huge software development company where it can be hard not to feel like a cog in the machine.

    I worked at VMware full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great campus and benefits.
    There are a lot of really smart people here.
    Pay was more than adequate.
    There are a lot of different projects so you can move around to new things.

    Cons

    This is a really big group of developers and it's hard not to feel overwhelmed by the bureaucracy and complexity of the products and organizations.
    Be prepared to be re-organized about every 6 months. VMware has some significant growing pains and isn't always effective at using all the talent they've hired.
    Much of the work is re-active and not pro-active.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the software development groups need to be more autonomous. It seemed like the various products where all intertwined with a huge cumbersome build process. It had moved beyond manageable. I ended up working in a group that spent all its time reacting to problems and fixing them. The root cause of the problems was not fixed though.
