Thread regarding VMware layoffs

What's with hiding the number?

Why exactly is WMware refusing to say how many people were laid off as part of the latest layoffs round - especially here, in the US? What is it they are trying to hide? Could it be that the numbers are much larger than anybody suspects and they just want to avoid negative publicity?

I'm really curious about this.

I think the reason it is being hidden is because they aren't official redundancies. In some countries redundancies require certain procedures VMware can't afford. So redundancies are rather 'pay-offs'.

They do this ever year. They are paying for talent where it makes the most sense a particular year. I do feel very bad that folks who where blind sided. Never a good feeling. Granted some folks get axed due to personal reason. That being said do I want someone on my team who is a team player, or someone I have to fight with every week?

It is a lie that this layoff is rebalancing of workforce. The layoffs at EUC workspace 1 intelligence team targeted only the people who were hired via an acquisition in March 2018. The manager did not personally like the people and because he is the VP's pet, he recommended laying them off. The VP of engineering forces micromanagement practices to push people out. 12 people left already before the 1 year vesting and the layoff took the remaining. This is corruption at EUC workspace 1 intelligence. How is Vmware silent about it? The engineers are really top notch highly competitive. It is politically motivated.

I've been through many layoffs at different large companies. Hiding the number is typical.
