    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei VMware gearbeitet (Über 8 Jahre)

    Pros

    VMware is a big company but in many ways had a startup vibe. That was great because the resources and infrastructure of a big company were there, but it gave most people I worked with freedom to work on many projects, influence, move around, and contribute in many ways. Plus, many things moved faster than they might at other companies of the same size. Perks were really great including bonuses, events on the campus, opportunities, etc.

    Kontras

    The biggest con is the annual layoff. During most of the years I was there, we were growing like crazy, beating expectations, gaining in stock price, etc. It was always positive and upward. However, every single January, it was known that there would be a round of layoffs, even when all numbers were looking great as they almost always were. Management called it restructuring. But, over the years, some really good people were let go for no apparent reason. Then to add insult to injury, a week or two later, there would be a company quarterly meeting discussing how VMware was doing so well and is still hiring, but they had to make some changes. It always felt dishonest and the sympathy for those let go came across as disingenuous.

    Rat an das Management

    January was always a nerve racking month and it completely destroyed any sense of loyalty to the company. I know a few people that completely changed their perception of VMware after a colleague of theirs was let go with no apparent rhyme or reason. Many people left shortly after as a result of losing loyalty to the company or for just being stressed out about themselves getting cut the next year.

    Bewerbung

    Der Vorgang dauerte 5 Tage. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2008 bei VMware (Palo Alto, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    They turned me down. Interviewers were highly condescending, and looking for specific answers. After they declined me, I got offers from Microsoft and Google, with a good salary / stock combo at each.
    They should learn to treat interviewees with respect, and train their interviewers to judge better.
    Based on interviewer's attitude, I wouldnt wanna work there anyways, even if they offered me a better salary.
