Business Development Manager/Sales (Current Employee) –  Reston, VA30 October 2017
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.

A nice atmosphere for an enterprise software company with a good work/life balance.
UX Visual Designer (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CA30 October 2017
Depending on your position your days can be extremely busy or more flexible. In my experience my work load was in constant flux of not having enough to do to having almost more than I could handle.

I really enjoyed the work/life balance they offer. It takes away a lot of stress to have some flexibility in your daily schedule and commuting routine.

Budget for building our team never existed nor did a promotion. It is a good company with nice perks and a beautiful campus.

I enjoyed my team, their collaborate and positive spirit, though working with other product teams would often be a challenge to push for the best designs.

I would recommend VMware as a nice place to work, and I did enjoy over 6 years of what felt like good job security.
Pros
Great café, live/work balance
Cons
Difficult to get promoted based on budget, The “unlimited vacation” was awkward and not really unlimited.
