Quality Internship With Intelligent Coworkers

Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff Intern  in  Palo Alto, CA (US)
Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff Intern in Palo Alto, CA (US)

I worked at VMware as an intern

Pros

Lots of very smart people
Good office space
On par with other Bay Area companies in terms of salaries and perks (somewhat)

Cons

Lots of politics at/above middle management, though hasn't affected engineering work as much
Slow and frustrating release/development cycle

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the politics and focus on innovation internally (in terms of development and agility) as opposed to bickering for position
