    I have been working at VMware full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Management tries to be balanced. Some people don't like the increased emphasis on using a software life cycle structure, but it's actually a good thing.

    Cons

    Product marketing and exec management can't or don't always make the tough decisions on product direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer satisfaction and solutions drive this company. Yearly releases for the sake of pushing out features and "staying ahead of the competition" may not be the best strategy. Especially at the cost of product quality.

    Emphasize to engineering that products have to be easy to use and be designed with a end to end usability work flow. Often the products look like the UI and user processes are an after thought to the feature itself.

    To HR and exec management/board: when you roll out a change in policy, such as the transition to "non-accrued vacation", give the employees time to plan for it rather than springing on people after they can't do anything. Changing policy is fine, you have to do what you have to do.

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    Fast-paced. Part of team that is market leader in Virtualization. Many opportunities to rotate into other positions. Nice Perks. Great gym. Open Snack Bar. Great cafe. Campus is expanding, too.

    Cons

    Cutthroat. Folks are competitive and want to get ahead. More competitive than cooperative. You need to stay on top of your game to survive and must have thick skin. Not necessarily a 'con', but must adjust quickly if you are joining from a different environment.
