    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer II/III in Ballincollig (Ireland)

    I worked at VMware full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very good learning opportunity; Access to almost every documentation, even source code; Free canteen; Great colleagues: friendly, knowledgeable, helpful; Collaborative environment; Own laptop: permission to install as one likes.

    Cons

    Unfairness; Work performance not recognized, even when working in average 14-16 hours/day; Nepotism; Extreme high work load. Actually no real career opportunities if one speaks other languages than English as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look up the words honesty, integrity, and fairness, and apply it to yourself. Recognize work performance independently from nationality, friendships, or relations - simply by facts. Implement a proper recruitment process, especially for the multilingual team.

    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
