Vmware was by far my favorite company to work for. I wish I didn't have to go back to school and wasn't a temporary employee because the work environment there and the employees were amazing.

Great Company with great technology. Management is a little old school and need to focus more on individuals and what they are putting into their work rather than what their numbers are.
Pros
Work/Life Balance, good benefits and salary
Cons

This company lives & breathes technology & sales. In one of these positions, there are many opportunities. The rest of the company, including any infrastructure type position is less valued.

I was just laid off yesterday, I guess it was a major round of layoffs, and I was one of the unlucky. I spent over 3 years working at VMware and they let me go just like that. I really enjoyed the work while I worked there, good people, amazing technology, amazing benefits. I would recommend it to anyone, but can't believe I was laid off after 3 years of hard work.
Pros
Unlimited time off, Benefits, compensation, training
Cons
lots of travel... gone every week for a year

It was a challenging and educational experience. But the leadership requires much better oversight from higher management.
If I had it to do over I would not have stayed with the company as long as I did.
Pros
Learned alot.
Cons
Too much travel

All I can say is the culture is great, lots of smart people, and great work/life balance with all kinds of great benefits. VMware stays current on what is important to customers in the industry and how to be innovative to make sure they are ahead of their competition.
Pros
dynamic work environment, great team atmosphere
Cons
sometimes I am so excited about the technology that I work too much

Great products and generally great company. Culture is shifting because of Dell take-over. A few years it will be sucked into Dell. Box heads vs. Software makers.

Interesting and rewarding work that offers a lot of autonomy, but because you work for an entirely virtual team, collaboration and coordination with co-workers and management can be a mixed bag.
Pros
Benefits and hours, which are generally reasonable
Cons
Isolation from remote work and a middle/line level management deficit
