I've just read through some posts on the VMware page and people are terrified of being acquired by Broadcom. I don't understand why. I personally enjoy my job and I am paid well for it. Actually, I'm paid above the industry standard, which is not... — read more
After almost eight years here, I’m finally leaving. As soon as I submitted my resignation, I immediately felt a huge relief. What advice would you give to those just coming here? I think one of the better tips for new hires is not to stay here very... — 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
https://www.itworldcanada.com/article/info-tech-forrester-analysts-slam-broadcom-buy-of-vmware/487093 “I can speculate reasons why Broadcom could want VMware. If they want to move into Software Defined Networking, Network Functions... — read more
I still don't know of a case that someone has regretted leaving Broadcom. Perhaps there is someone?
The more I read the news about the possible recession ahead of us, the more I worry about how it will affect the cuts.
How did Directors fare after the Symantec and CA technologies takeover? Was there a huge bias to getting rid of them vs normal employees?...
I've been hearing many horror stories in the past week or so and it'd be nice to see that things are not as bleak as they seem to be right now. I understand that there's always the fear of layoffs as is everywhere else, but outside of that do you... — 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
I'm still here only because I'm paid well, otherwise I'd leave. It's an ugly feeling to hear how disappointed and displeased are the employees of the company that will be acquired by Broadcom. Not only are they afraid of losing their jobs but they... — read more
Broadcom Inc said on Thursday it will acquire cloud computing company VMware Inc in a $61 billion cash-and-stock deal, the chipmaker's biggest and boldest bid to diversify its business into enterprise software. The acquisition is the second... — read more
As far as I know, this company has ruined every acquisition so far. Symantec is ruined. This would probably the case with VMWare too, so I hope Broadcom doesn't acquire VMWare.
Not 100% sure, but $Avgo has gap from 480 to current $540. After very normal er, stock back to 440 to 480. Engineers will prepare to wrap up and escape like fire alarm.
They come asking for money to give support. They threaten to withdraw support for existing devices if they are no the chosen SoC vendor. I work for a large broadcaster - these shysters are attempting to extort us for circa $10 million.
Another classic…I $hit my pants reading it….lmfao….
What a relief after I gave notice. I really can't even imagine what all this will look like even in the near future, given all the people who are leaving. Soon this will look nothing like that former company.
In fact, what frustrates me the most is that everything I do in the office, I can do much faster and much better at home, where I do not have so many distractions. Does the leadership really think that any of the young talents will want to come... — read more
Finally after 3 years of no raises...get ready for a massive 3% salary boost!
Even this last interesting project I was working on turned into a nightmare because the deadlines were so short that I just couldn’t enjoy the work at all. And so it is almost every time. Does every interesting project have to turn into a ton of... — read more
Hock is planning to announce that Mike Gregoire will return as President of BSG. After months of negotiations, Mike has agreed to return in exchange for a lifetime supply of padded spandex shorts.
High inflation, we do not have salary increase? What a joke. :)
So, what brought about today's surprising news? I'm sure it wasn't done out of the goodness of management's heart. Too many people abandoning ship? Or just a carrot that can easily be revoked by fudging the numbers come December.
something brewing....? can't be good.
It's interesting how much is being said here about technology, innovation, and the real truth is that Broadcom doesn't really care about new technology or innovation at all. Everything we have is obsolete. An engineer can only waste his time here... — read more
i heard there's discussion of a new name for BSG, to better represent the core values that we deliver to our clients. Apparently based upon a lot of deep, intimate conversations with our customers at all levels and angles. the proposed name is... — read more
With results like this, why in the world do we need layoffs? Revenue of $7,407 million for the fourth quarter, up 15 percent from the prior year period GAAP net income of $1,989 million for the fourth quarter; Adjusted EBITDA of $4,547... — read more
Watercooler says lots of cuts especially ITC. Shocked it took so long
Unfortunately, I didn’t start thinking about this problem on time. I needed a job and I didn’t think much about whether my skills would erode here or not. It is only now that I am looking for a new job that I become aware of it and regret that I... — read more
Brocade wrongly sacked award-winning salesman who depended on company insurance for cancer treatment https://www.theregister.com/2022/02/02/brocade_salesman_unfair_dismissal_tribunal/
Isn't it weird that the company would rather spend money on rapid tests than let us continue to work remotely? It makes no sense to me at all, especially when I know that most people, like me, are much more productive when working from home. What's... — read more
