Tableau Lead Consultant (Current Employee), Palo Alto, CAFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: vmware has a fabulous set of perqs and benefits, as well as the most beautiful campus around. if you are motivated, there is a lot of opportunity to do interesting work.
I have worked here for almost a year and have already acquired an abundance of knowledge in areas of the business in which I previously had minimal to no experience. The people here are incredibly intelligent- movers and shakers for sure. I also love the fact that you can bring your dog to work, makes for a more laid back work environment.

VMware is a terrific company & a great palce to work!
System Test Engineer (Former Employee), Palo Alto, CAFebruary 18, 2015
Pros: interesting work, many great employee programs, active, engaging community.
Cons: some in management aren't connected that well to the people they manage, there are cultural & communication challenges, a significant protion of the workforce is unadapted to the foreign culture they live & work in.
Vmware gives a very clear impression that it cares about its employees as people, not just workers. There are a lot of perqs, and HR is always trying to be sure people have happy, healthy, fulfilling lives.

The technology is extremely interesting, and there are many opportunities for learning new things.

Working for VMware is really quite inspiring, actually.

Good work/life balance, but can be boring/slow
Data Analyst, Operations (Former Employee), Palo AltoFebruary 18, 2015
Pros: work life balance, good campus, interesting teams, good benefits
Cons: hard to advance, company direction muddled
Can be quite slow at times. Somewhat hard for smaller projects to advance, don't know where the headcount is going. Management at director level was quite good, but a few too many directors. Coworkers are sort of hit or miss - all smart people to be sure, but motivation level varies. Teamwork isn't that high on priority list, most just want to do their bit and go home. Older crowd in general.

Great products but no work life balance
MTS 3 (Current Employee), Burlington, MAFebruary 9, 2015
Pros: free snacks, beverages, meals, and a great game room
Cons: management doesn't listen and there is no work life balance
VMware has great products that are fun to work on, but management has no idea why the phrase "Work life balance" means. They are always creating unrealistic schedules that require 12 to 14 hour days and working weekends. As a salaried employee you feel majorly taken advantage of. Your coworkers are great and fun to work with which is good, because you will be spending all of your time with them and not your family.

Start up culture in a big company
Enterprise Account Executive (Former Employee), Dallas, TXDecember 27, 2014
VMware is interesting in that they are a big company that sees themselves as a scrappy start up. VMware has a very traditional sales culture and you will typically find yourself working late nights and weekends.
