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

    Pros

    free training get your VCP and GET OUT
    free food
    i dont work there any longer the place was keeping me up at night

    Cons

    abusive managers ; favoritism ; expectations are you work till you drop. Days without lunch as forced to be in phone que 8 hours for days while what normally would be called TEAMLEAD takes over 1 hour lunch or more and is unapproachable for help.
    managers dont seem to get if you have 30 back log tickets you need to be able to do research and work them to get rid of them. Most of the people at the burlington office are afriad of being dragged into a room and walked out. Company has way to many products for current support model it will hurt them. Oh wait it has they layed off AOT of people .. VMwares moto " more with less" good luck people your the less more = more hours in the que more assigned tickets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    grow up and communicate. Grow up and realize that your buddy shouldn't be hired as a manager when he has no manager skills. Sickening work place.

    Communication issues where certain manager abused support engineers then upper managers FINALLY realize years later that specific manager is good with escalations but the people hes abused have been walked out. ANd he was made manaager due to sucking up to Senior manager .. he had no manager training and AT ALL learn as you go ..

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None really. Campus looks good is perhaps the only PRO

    Cons

    Too many managers especially in CPD Palo Alto. Some managers have 2 or 3 employees. Consider CPD view team that has had historically few employees per manager. Same is also true for vCloud team. Some managers have absolutely no technical skill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate the managers who have too few employees. Also CPD is really not core team and they dont produce much. Eliminate customer support in Palo Alto as it does not have much ROI.
