Large EUC town hall yesterday prioritizing autonomy and EUC running EUC only deals. EUC account segmentation will be different than the Core. Core is prioritizing top 2000+ VMW spend accounts, EUC is prioritizing top 2000+ EUC spend accounts. So... — read more
Thank God for Hoc. Otherwise, VMware would be having one too. Atleast we've kicked the can down the road with Hoc. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-02-06/dell-dell-lays-off-about-6-650-employees-in-latest-tech-cuts
Answer: None Raghu will argue that its not the "Main" lightbulb. Betsy will argue the light bulb is not diverse enough. Sumit will want to know if the light bulbs can illuminate his nose cam. And Kit will want to know if we can switch all the... — read more
New FY what's the latest around tanzu
Does anyone know what sales announcement is rumored to be made today?
For someone that is 'steering' the ship to destination Broadcom, the captain has gone very quiet. Has he jumped overboard? Seems strange that given the situation we find ourselves in he has gone underground. But hang on, its a new FY so wait for... — read more
Too many daily threads regarding layoffs and toxic culture, lets talk about something positive. When Broadcom takes over, no more DEI! No more inclusivity newsletters about what pronoun to use or what some pod is doing for themselves. Maybe we can... — read more
Reposting from latest Citrix thread. Tom Krause using the same BC playbook: “TK goes on unhinged rant about remote work At the GEM. Likened it to kids skipping school, or some guy who ran a business, moved to Hawaii, and let the business fail... — read more
People are no longer nice, they are covering their a--es and knifing each other in the back. Going to managers instead of each other if issues arise, and making them overblown and dramatic. Only wanting to sell "old" stuff and leaving the market... — read more
Being planned, lay off can happen in March-April time frame.
I wish I was one of those who think that our jobs are safer than the rest of the industry, at least for a while. However, I have no arguments for that. What are your arguments why you think we are safer than the rest in this industry?
I'm not saying (guessing) that our jobs are safe over the long-term. I'm saying that between now and October (or whenever the merger happens), I don't see any incentive to do a big layoff. After the merger? Yes, a bloodbath is coming. But by October... — read more
Today we learned that the VC PE had not written code since 2008, and it's doubtful they even wrote code at that time. At this company, there is no evidence that they can write code at all since there have been no commits to any shipping... — read more
Got a job offer how can I volunteer to be cut from this place? Would love a nice bonus before I leave
Looks like there has been an update. Not sure what it means but it states that the deadline has been suspended? https://ec.europa.eu/competition/elojade/isef/case_details.cfm?proc_code=2_M_10806
This whole layoff and acquisition thing has me on edge. I've been having trouble sleeping lately, and it's really starting to affect both my mood and my productivity. I feel like I can't concentrate anymore, and it's frustrating considering that I'm... — read more
These next couple of months will be stressful for folks, I am sorry. That being said, saying everyone left VMware just because of the acquisition is just d-mb! Everyone has their own personal goals of what they want out of their job. Sure some... — read more
When will the next round be?
Just before the acquisition announcement, this was a place where I wanted to stay and progress my career. Without any exaggeration, I really loved working here. It is beyond me how is it even possible that in such a relatively short time this has... — read more
Two years ago before we knew anything about Broadcom, I was thinking of leaving and I had applied for a bunch of roles at companies like Splunk, Microsoft, AWS, Cohesity, and some startups. Out of the 11 job applications I made, I got interviews with... — read more
Why does everyone who works in Carbon Black look five years old?
Do you still think that it is a wise decision to wait for the finalization of the acquisition and the severance pay, given that there is more and more competition on the job market and no indication of when the situation will improve?
The British are intervening! The higher ups have not abandoned you.
I should have quit soon after the acquisition was first announced. The last eight or so months have brought me nothing but stress and worry which increased my anxiety significantly. At that time, jobs in my field were plentiful. That's no longer the... — read more
Wanted to wish everyone a happy Thursday. Sorry we are all in this BS together. Hope we all make it to the end of January. Cheers.
Only now that I've seriously started looking for a new job do I realize how much time I actually wasted here. In the meantime my skills have significantly atrophied and that makes it even more difficult to find a new job in an already bad job... — read more

So far I have seen four Tanzu Sales reps and one solution engineer laid off. Anyone see anymore?
Just beginning, more to come. Home prices will start crashing soon.
I heard that since the 25th anniversary is on 2/10 and we’re getting an EPIC day, that they’re postponing mass layoffs until after that. Has anyone heard of something similar? If it’s going to be in February, would they still have to dole out... — read more
Moral has gone down the toilet. Worked hard on SpringOne just to be laid off the day before it happens.
I'm starting to despise this company even though I used to love working here. What a terrible approach to layoffs! They obviously timed the layoffs so as not to pay bonuses to the employees. I wonder how much they will save on those unpaid... — read more
Shouldn't there be a hiring freeze until the acquisition is finalized? What's the point of bringing new people on when they could all be fired/laid off within a few months? Not to mention, bringing new people on while current employees are being laid... — read more
Does that mean we're safe?
VMware 25to 30 lay off expected in a month. Here what I did in my previous company. The day of layoff I hid in the rest room until HR return to their office. It worked for me. Next day nobody showed up at my office.
Seeing in some of the threads that RIF'ing has begun. So sorry for those talented individuals already.. Any information on how the news was delivered, what the severance looks like, and what BUs this has happened in already?
Many companies are having large layoffs and yet we do not hear much about in the news. Millions of people are losing jobs and the journo does not care.
I have not received any notification so far, but I am very anxious.
