    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay is good but you cannot spend as you don't know when your job will be gone.
    They have good tech events but enforce a lot of work which is difficult to participate.

    Cons

    Forget work life balance.
    You get 60% hike and laid off 4 months after that.
    Managers don't support your growth.
    Nonsense ownership model. You are made to work even in US timings to support customers.
    All Quality Engineers (QE) are threatened for job.
    Finally most important Layoff - they keep doing.

    Advice to Management

    There is a complete unrest from junior employees till managers.
     Give employees peaceful environment to work.
     Stop calling VMware - one of the best places to work for.
     Put a tag line under VMware. "Beware of Layoffs"
