Quality Internship With Intelligent Coworkers

Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff Intern  in  Palo Alto, CA (US)
Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff Intern in Palo Alto, CA (US)

I worked at VMware as an intern

Pros

Lots of very smart people
Good office space
On par with other Bay Area companies in terms of salaries and perks (somewhat)

Cons

Lots of politics at/above middle management, though hasn't affected engineering work as much
Slow and frustrating release/development cycle

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the politics and focus on innovation internally (in terms of development and agility) as opposed to bickering for position

    I have been working at VMware full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    wicked smart engineers who still largely drive the culture
    cool technology that continues to change the world

    Cons

    promotions take a long time
    rest of business is growing around the R&D community and risks diluting very engineering centric culture

    guard the culture

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
