Lot of office politics. Maternity leave is only given if you finish 1 year in the company.

Be careful where in the company you work. Strong women are routinely let go.

    Maybe. Depends where in the company they are. Some parts are locally OK, but the company is not addressing the issues that exist.

Great place to work, supports flexible schedules and work like balance — but you have to take the opportunity to enjoyit, rather than working too many hours.

IT is not female friendly, you can expect to have people on your team that will go over your head to a male manager with *everything*.

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.

    Maybe. 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.
