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

    Pros

    Nice campus, stock is stable, products are well known

    Cons

    Very poor (across the board) IT senior management team. The most political environment anywhere. Long hours are the norm. It's a sweatshop. Everything is an emergency, complete lack of planning and structure. IT culture is poor, everyone is afraid to speak up. Without a doubt, staff would leave if not for RSUs. Would rank at less than one star if the option was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stabilize the IT environment. Hire a real CIO and support him/her. It's too much of a revolving door. A lot of good people have been fired for purely political reasons.

    I worked at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A great place with great people in a great town. Great! Great! What more can be said. If I ever choose another company, this would be it.

    Cons

    There are no cons. Loved the people, locations, free food. Club Trips were great. This is a no brainer of a place to work and build a life long career.
