Thread regarding VMware layoffs

Will we be affected today?

Does anybody know if any US locations will be impacted with layoffs today?

I'm nervous because it's the end of the month, and it's been mentioned several times that the last week of January is usually when layoffs happen at VMware.

Add to that layoffs in other countries...

3 SLED core ISRs, 3 Healthcare core ISRs, 5 core Commercial ISRs, 2 core Enterprise ISRs were let go. All in Austin office. All these positions were inside sales. Rumor has it alignment is to make the field more happy, and turn the inside sales role into more of an ISA role, instead — but not confirmed.
