"VMware seems to care very deeply about the welfare of its employees! The HR department is most excellent. Many programs are provided that address the total well-being of every employee there. The work I'm familiar with is interesting, challenging, and can provide many opportunities - depending on specific organization."

"I've worked with VMware for around 3 years and have found it to be a mixture of the good, the bad, and the ugly. There are some great people to work with at VMware. Unfortunately, given its rapid growth, several bad-apples have joined as well. If you end up on a team that has one of these bad apples, unfortunately VMware doesn't do a good job at shedding them (with 360 degree reviews), so it will make life miserable for you."

"This is a great company that is employee-focused. They believe in training their employees, providing many different ways for the employees to grow both technically and magisterially. They also have provided us with access to interesting and diverse speakers, everyone from Brent Spiner to Donald Knuth.The work is challenging and the management team is supportive and for the most part, upfront and honest with the employee when he/she has an issue.They believe that just because you work in a remote location you are not a second class employee and they work hard and continue to make that a priority. They believe that open and honest communication is important and they "walk the walk""

"I've worked here since 2012. It's ok as corporations go. There is a lot of emphasis on innovation which is quite exciting but on the other hand there is also quite a bit of uncertainty regarding methodologies. There is a lot of talk about agile but the way it is implemented doesn't really make sense. Since the company has so many products at varying levels of maturity the one size fits all approach is creating problems."
