The latest earnings report is coming out tomorrow. Let's see if the numbers are up to par with Tan's expectations or if there'll be cuts to make sure they get where he wants them to be. I'm not too worried, to be honest. Being laid off would not be... — read more

There are many complainers here, which makes sense, however, no matter how angry and frustrated someone is at this company, one should still try and be objective. Guys, is there anything you like here? I also have many complaints, but working at... — read more
I'm quite saddened to hear some people from VMW who wouldn't want to work here at all. It's not that I don't often wish to work somewhere else but I don't have many complaints. The only thing I feel bad about is that I think this company can be... — read more
It was on its last legs.
Maybe someone has more details about annual layoffs? Please spill the beans if you have any insights.

Wouldn't want to generalize, maybe this is the ideal company for someone. However, it's never before happened to me that I realized after only one month that I made a cardinal mistake when I applied here. How long did it take you to realize that... — read more
I love it. Record inflation yet barely enough to cover gas increases. Oh, but we're getting an extra five percent on that bonus that is not guaranteed, and the stock is now down $200 from earlier in the year. Maybe they'll start handing out "Atta... — read more

...must be some pi---d off VMW employee... ROTFL..
Might not be around for long…. LMFAO…
At first glance it may not seem like it, however, it is becoming increasingly clear to me that Broadcom actually cares less and less about maintaining customer satisfaction. Am I wrong?
Sounds like he-l. Are there any comparable companies that are run in the same Hock way?
I seem to be the only one here who doesn’t complain about micromanagement at Broadcom, since I previously worked at a company where micromanagement was even worse than here. However, I have heard of some micromanagement incidents here that would... — read more

I would love to give some advice to people at VMW, but I can't think of a better advice than to start looking for something else right away? Those who do not lose their jobs in this whole process will probably soon realize that Broadcom is the... — read more
My friend works at VMWare and I understand his concerns and why he is already looking for a new job. I have a quick question - do you think there will be any differences between this acquisition and the previous acquisitions made by Broadcom? — read more
