Hi everyone, I read the news about Dell divesting VMWare. I sort of understand what that means at a high level. Can anyone share what this means from a technology or products perspective? Does this new we can start innovating, may be hire more US... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at VMware
I get VMWare's need to pivot and move beyond the DC (especially now that EUC/VDI is slowing down and new network features like LB and dFW are not selling), but who is going to look to disjointed hypervisor company for application modernization?... — read more
Too many products and messages being pushed on customers Products with literally only one developer Support engineers with dozens and dozens of cases to manage Field personnel buried with internal asks and requirements Leadership has... — read more
COVID economy: Layoffs, furloughs still jolt Bay Area job market https://www.mercurynews.com/2021/03/01/covid-economy-layoff-furlough-bay-area-job-market-airline-tech-edd
Did anyone ever tried to complain using Etica? My manager is pure racist and from I see on this forum he is not alone and I am not alone. I am thinking of using Etica to send evidences and how promotions and hires are based of ethnicity. But... — read more
For Prem support- This means “ some” prem customers will not renew.. Support being a “cost center” but that fact has no weight for Dell managers who are willing to tow the line and stock will rise in the short term ...
VMW has never really been that good at EUC or VDI, and has always had a very splintered approach. Citrix and MSFT have been and will continue to eat their lunch in one way or the other. VMW might actually improve its margins by dumping the EUC... — read more
I’m not a business strategist or anything, just a regular Joe working at VMW. I understand the VMW play to democratize the cloud providers (CP) by 1) providing an easy way to build hybrid deployments and 2) allow customers to become multi-cloud... — read more
Is anyone else hearing their customers or sales teams throw a fit when they hear the price of Success 360 compared to their previous costs of Premier Support, BCS, and HCS? In many cases, it is double the previous cost or more.
Proof that this place is bloated with too many talking heads and disjointed strategies. Most of these sessions are fluff rah-rah sessions, except for the technical ones. It is sad that most of the agenda is spent on the rah-rah sessions.
The latest VMware cuts will leave more than 100 workers without a job starting in late March. According to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) notice with the California Employment Development Department, 107 workers are getting... — read more
I used to be proud to work for this company, but I’m afraid there is no salvation for it anymore. VMWare is soon to be a dinosaur. The management (what’s left) doesn’t have a clue. They focus on SJW c-ap, the environment and any and everything... — read more
Hi, I’m new to VMware and just heard from a colleague that there are no merit increases? Is this true? Any suggestions or tips on an equity distribution and raise?
Who will own and run VMware? This blog shows frequent layoffs and departing leadership. Someone is nipping away?
This place has made sure that anybody who tries to stand out gets punished by receiving additional work and nothing else. No pay increases, no bonuses, no promotions, nothing. So why would anybody even bother at this place anymore? I certainly know... — read more
Management said that a goal is for VMware to be a networking company. Is VMware viewed as a networking company? What will it take for VMware to be seen as a networking company?
Fy21 just ended and now if somebody leaves in like March, will VMware still pay bonus of FY21 which gets issues in April mid?
My question is: will we ever have better products? As long as they keep building complex, fragile products that don’t integrate well, and keep blowing their cash on botched acquisitions, no amount of shuffling the deck is going to change... — read more
I’m not sure anymore. After the last round of layoffs I’ve been question on whether to stick it out or jump ship. When layoffs are the only solution that can be found to solve the issues this company has, it becomes obvious how inept upper... — read more
VMWare‘s sales leadership are so clueless! They make org changes instead of addressing the actual underlying issues. Sorry VMWare executives, moving people around just for the sake of moving them won’t solve your problems. Try actually addressing the... — read more
I’m mgr from NSX - 1-1 scheduled for today.. sleepless nights!! Anyone received 1-1?
I can enjoy my weekend without worrying more layoffs are coming next week?
With all the layoffs we've been having lately - and sometimes it feels like they're never ending - there's no winning whether you are laid off or not. If you are laid off, you're out of a job. If you are not, you get to pick up extra work for no... — read more
haven't heard anything today of people getting laid off, has anyone else?
Is it just me, or does it seem that people who were laid off are leaning toward the fifty and over category?
Are you really telling me that the company isn't capable of doing these layoffs in a day or two and has to drag them out throughout the entire week? Why? There's no good reason for it. And it's certainly not doing any favors to employees. We are... — read more
Does anyone know how does the act of communication that one is being laid off happen? Who notifies you and how do they tell you? How long the meeting lasts?
Usually we hear more by now, but this time it's mostly quiet. I'm wondering if this is one of the smaller rounds and the worst is yet to come.

What locations are being hit?
Be honest, please.
Someone posted on this board a couple of days ago claiming to have first-hand information about large layoffs hitting NSBU as early as February, and that the extent of the layoffs could be 3-5X larger then the ones we’ve had last year. If those... — read more
but looks like there will be many this year, how could this happen
You can leave, but its gonna cost you.
Everyone keeps telling me that I "have to transition to Clould"... I am not even sure how to start. I've been doing VMware for about six years now. Any advice would be greatly appreicated.
