Thread regarding VMware layoffs

Looking for something fulfilling

[because WMware is depressing]
When I was looking for a job here I really couldn’t even imagine it was so depressing a place. Obviously I didn’t do my research well. I believe that many more people are deeply disappointed in this company and that for many WMware is one big mistake?

I remember Pat pounding his chest at a Tech Summit shortly after he started and claiming that he would not sacrifice quality and investment in the company in order to appease Elliott Management's financial engineering demands. And then over the course of the next several years, that is exactly what he did. The consequences of low/no investment have only continued since then.

Agree. Pat was very over rated by the internal brown-losers and ultimately very damaging to the company in the long run. Things were way better under Paul Maritz. And now things are continuing the downhill slide under the new regime.

It didn't used to be depressing.

This is a result of Pat's Policy of Hiring Cheapest Labor possible. This included managers. C-level became is interested in the health of company, and more interested in health of own bank accounts.

Now we is a company filled of low quality workers, tech leadership. Driven by management knowing nothing how to make software, and protecting there own than company interests.
