So, my number came up and I was let go yesterday. 14 months before retirement. It could have been avoided and they had multiple options, yet this is the path they chose to take. I'll be fine but this leaves quite a bit of bitter taste... Farewell peeps and good luck - it was a good ride and it's time to move on.

Sad to hear that. Ageism is the biggest social evil in US tech right now, bigger than s-xism, racism, anything
Sad to hear, if you were long enough with vmware your severance pay should compensate that. vmware sux.
All the best to the pre-retirement person impacted. Consider your legal options, you have nothing to lose.
Yes-peeps thrive in EUC, NSX and ROKS BU.
Sorry to hear the news. Euc is one of the politically motivated group. Surprised to see no body is touched including incompetent QA Dir horizon group Bangalore
It is sad. Just a reminder to avoid such companies. It is well know as a political closed circle company. Especially, EUC with all the BS going under the VPs who only are looking to retain their jobs. This is why they hire incompetent managers and directors. It is absurd. See the intelligence team and absurd, incompetent, and rude, the director who is responsible for API and backend. He is the VP pet. No one can talk to him despite his rude, ego, and incompetency. Look how many people left over 1 year at EUC intelligence.
Sorry for that. How old are you if I may ask?
Unconscionable. It is sad to hear about cases like this.
