      Pros

      The company listens to you The company empowers you to succeed and contribute to success The company believes in collaboration, teamwork The company culture and values are solid - respect at the workplace, EPIC2 values are not just on paper! Encourages innovation, think lean, think like a startup, everyone has a voice

      Cons

      A global work culture with the freedom to innovate takes its toll on work-life balance. It's up to employees to find that balance and maintain Not all Departments, Business Units or Organizations within VMware receive the same treatment - There is disparity across orgs that contribute to some pain. As with all global corporates - there is politics are various levels that prevail - that may need to addressed at grassroots levels to bring out the best in all employees. Company is currently going through a lot of churn that is not good for employee morale!

      No longer a place for experienced engineers

      Pros

      Overall the company is employee focused. Gives a lot of perks to employees like gifts, shares, allowances, leaves etc.

      Cons

      This company focus has shifted from hiring experienced employees to college graduates as a result of which the QOS has significantly dropped. The India mid-level management team is highly inefficient and has no clue on what's happening in the company and they just keep changing processes going around in circles. There is no value for experienced and knowledgeable employees like old days, and the main focus is just on college hires. Some college hires are getting more salary than 7-8 years experienced people in the same team. Most of the promotions/appraisals are based on office politics and how much you can impress the manager, rather than your work.

      Pros

      Challenging work, guidance from superiors & impressive pay package and benefits. When COVID happened the company moved to wfh flawlessly and increased support financially and policy-wise too. Quite employee-friendly company. The work here pushes you to learn more and be better almost every other day.

      Cons

      The constant risk of job loss - Every year certain amount of people are laid off. That keeps people on their toes and leaves them worried.

    6. 1.0

      Most Unprofessional Company ever

      Pros

      RSUs - We received good number of shares as part of appraisals. But I hear they have stopped it now. Facilities are better than many companies, pantry is excellent.

      Cons

      Infested with internal office politics. A lot of managers were relatives of each other and highly unprofessional. Quality of work in operations was among the worst I have seen. Hiring unqualified people only because they were from a particular neighbouring state or they were relatives of someone they know is common in PSO ops, deal desk teams etc. Even though I personally didn't face any discrimination and I earned decent salary, I quit only because of the low quality of work offered and the unprofessional environment. VMware Bangalore is a toxic place if you join expecting highly professional MNC culture. Strongly advice to avoid joining this company if you are going to be a part of Operations or Finance.
