I observed and experienced a lot of gender bias. But most of all, the company is going through some tough times after growing too fast, increased competition, and acquisition by of parent company EMC by Dell. There have been multiple restructuring and layoffs, with high percentage of women over 45 impacted. If you are the breadwinner or your salary is essential to your household, VMW would be a risky choice.

VMware offers great benefits, flexibility, and unlimited paid vacation, which is great for working mothers. But for women seeking career success and/or climbing the ladder I would redirect them.

I have worked here for five years. The company has around a 20 / 80 split women to men. There are many more women in marketing and support functions with a few sprinkled in sales and engineering. The environment encourages a lot of backstabbing and cur throat behavior. Work / life balance is virtually zero, there are now layoffs and the future is uncertain due to the upcoming acquisition by Dell.

The maternity leave is not consistent across locations in the U.S. The California leave is more generous due to California state law, but if you are located outside of California, you will mostly likely receive little to no paid leave.

The maternity leave varies based on your location. They only due the minimum required by state law. Therefore it is more generous in California than in other states. Many companies in the same industry (tech) offer much more competivie parental leave packages.

It is tough for women in IT generally due to being in the minority, and the burden to be excellent to be placed in the first place. There is a general push to get women into management. At this time, technical leadership diversity is still lacking. There is also a large amount of inflexibility within Global Support Services for scheduling.

VMware does better than other IT companies, but has room to grow.

The company has a strong will to gain more female talent within their rows, especially engineering. The culture is very welcoming and family-oriented overall, work-life balance is excellent and volunteering (to any non-profit such as schools) is highly encouraged. There are times when things are very busy and it's required that you work long hours, but that rarely happens more than once a year - and for the rest everything is really flexible as long as you get your job done.
