I have been working at VMware

Pros

Energetic, growing rapidly, young, exciting, cutting-edge, industry leader, tons of opportunity, great collaborative culture.

Cons

Because it is growing so rapidly, internal systems and processes are not always in place. However if you see opportunity in challenges, you will succeed here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the growth coming!

    I worked at VMware

    Pros

    VMware is a terriific company to work for if you want to work for the virtualization industry leader with a great vision.

    Cons

    Work you will because there is not a very good work/life balance at VMware. While it's nice to be so busy, especially in this economy, sometimes a good employee can burn out.

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    * Lots of opportunities to grow
    * Very smart people
    * Differentiated product line (and the market leader)
    * Great CEO

    Cons

    * Uncertain about company's long-term direction (virtualization market will saturate eventually)
    * Risk of old-timers leaving when their stock grants run out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication and coordination via middle management; right now, it's very difficult to know when things will happen and how.
