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

    Pros

    Used to be a fun dynamic place to work, recruiting top tallent and delivering solid products.

    Cons

    Now its more of a closed minded environment with an infected middle management, full of yes-men that only care about their thrones and not the people they are suppose to manage. Products are nowhere close to the quality they used to be. Now selling vision only, and keeping customers confused. Lucky their coffers are full of cash because the next few years will be very ruff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to become Microsoft! Look back to what made this company great, you may notice it's not packaging and FUD but people and innovation that built this company.
