    I worked at VMware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of PTO, paid for cell phone and wifi, leadership seems engaged and really wants to diversify the company

    Cons

    -High performers stuck in low paying positions with no career path -Internal job interview process is absolutely terrible -Lots of antiquated processes that make it difficult for sellers to sell. It shouldn't take 2 weeks to receive a quote to deliver to a customer -I didn't see a focus on bringing in diverse candidates. They would prefer to hire friends from other companies who have the same mindset and do not bring creative ideas to the table -Terrible middle management; hostile work environment; HR was useless when I filed a complaint about my manager so I ended up leaving
