    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    still some smart people, great products and a phenomenal strategy. There's still cowboys who are getting stuff done, you just have to look hard to find them.

    Cons

    way too many overlapping projects and products, no one willing to make the hard decision to stamp out the overlaps. The consensus driven culture lives on but with so many people and decisions to be made, it can be paralyzing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make some hard choices but be transparent about why you're making them.
