"If you want a promotion you'll note that you have to provide a lot of evidence on why you should be promoted. This isn't something that I just had to deal with, I saw women (particularly in engineering) that had to write up evidence and show it to get the promotion, whereas men did NOT need to provide this level of evidence. I'm not against providing evidence, but this is something that should be balanced and equal. It also speaks to poor people management if your manager is also not attempting to help you with career growth."

"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."
"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."
"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."
