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

    Pros

    None really. Campus looks good is perhaps the only PRO

    Cons

    Too many managers especially in CPD Palo Alto. Some managers have 2 or 3 employees. Consider CPD view team that has had historically few employees per manager. Same is also true for vCloud team. Some managers have absolutely no technical skill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate the managers who have too few employees. Also CPD is really not core team and they dont produce much. Eliminate customer support in Palo Alto as it does not have much ROI.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The people
    The technology
    The fearlessness of the leadership
    No deadwood - if you don't fit, you don't last
    No politics getting in the way of getting it done
    No micro-management - master of your own fate

    Cons

    No downsides from my lens. I spend a lot of time speaking with other employees, and the cons they raise seem to me mostly self-inflicted, but that doesn't make them less real. I see it is a pro, but the level of accountability for one's own work/life balance might be foreign to some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on internal talent - there are some diamonds in the rough. Continue the focus on Culture over all else. Continue allowing the flow of talent from one group to another - better than flowing out the door. Keep VMware awesome.
