    I worked at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I sincerely believed in VMware's overall organization core values EPIC2 . While it's imperative to grow in any industry but at the same time giving back to community where we live, inculcating that culture by way of practicing it at global level, is an awesome way to thrive in any organization, adding to your personal learning goals. A personal growth is directly linked to your professional growth. And, I have had tremendous growth opportunities to grow along with VMware over 3 years.

    Cons

    Only if I could have gotten a job transfer to global location then I wouldn't have left such an incredible organization, VMware :)

    Advice to Management

    Nothing!!

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lot of Benefits with respect to learning new stuffs. Free food.

    Cons

    People who started working there are still stuck with their ideologies about outside world as they never saw the outside world other than this company. So its hard to convince them with your ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Bring some process to have some Annual Technical/Process Review done for all employees and make sure incompetent guys are removed.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at VMware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Good pay, bonus and perks
    2. Cash Awards & Recognition for good work
    3. Superb work-life balance

    Cons

    1. Highly fickle-minded leadership team
    2. Frequent re-organizations
    3. Brutal and inhuman layoff procedure

    The procedure comprises of setting up a meeting in a conference room, with no prior information to the employee whatsoever. The meeting comprises of your immediate manager, a HR representative and a member of the leadership team (Over con-call). You'll be told that you're being laid off and paid two months' salary. You'll then be escorted to your desk, where you'd handover your laptop / ID card to your manager and then you'd be asked to leave the company premises immediately

    Advice to Management

    I don't give free advices. Consultations come costly.
