what are people saying about working at VMWare?

  • My manager is kind and focused on helping me. The culture of kindness paired with getting things done is extremely effective.

  • There is a specific and measurable process for promotions and career progression.

  • 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.

  • Large company so it is possible to affect career growth, unless one actively seeks out opportunities.

  • Not so great for non system engineers who are looking to work on problems at scale/ML/Distributed systems etc.

  • Just like any company, it can be more about the management than the company. Some managers don't know how to provide expectations and communicate for growth. Have never had a review in the time I've worked there and have no idea what my expectations are.

“The coding interview will last about 45 minutes and you'll be expected to answer medium / hard Leetcode questions. Coding interviews at Airbnb can be very challenging - no pseudocode here, so be sure to prepare at a level of detail that means your code will pass test cases. Interviewees recommend reviewing basics like searching a binary tree, dfs/bfs, queues/stacks, sort algorithms, etc.”
