    I worked at VMware full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Few exceptional Engineers & Manager(s) (but rest are pathetic & selfish )
    -Exciting Technology & competition
    -Competitive Pay

    Cons

    -CPD BU Leader's main priority is to develop/promote Beijing Team leaving rest of the Teams (Paloalto, Bangalore, Sophia) to Hell!
    -No employee retention
    -Engineers are treated like Pigs (Extremely sorry to compare with Pigs) No value to personal life.
    -No work life balance, even after working during weekends, Managers expect engineers not take any comp off for the weekends spent on work.
    -Too much of Politics.
    -In-order to promote their level in hierarchy, Sr. Manager(s) hire another manager.
    -Managers can do anything to elevate their position. Best example-One of the engineer(Sr. MTS) who resignes the company after 1+yr of work in CPD as Lead, gets call back to CPD as Manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean all the slack, specially Managers and Directors.
