Infra/Sysops/NASA teams cut to half. Other teams frozen. Bulgaria site to double workforce and Cairo support center coming up. Most job openings coming masked from Dell.
Seriously VMware lays off big every January and smaller in July, and that is when the company is doing fantastic. Just wait until Michael Dell is done opening is piehole and tanking VMware stock. Seriously W.T.F . Stay away Mike and let VMware make... read more
Interesting comment about future of our CTO. Nothing wrong with our current CTO, if he is quitting they should hire a good and competent CTO; Age, gender and ethnicity must not matter. I am not white nor Indian but Indian Frat Boy accusations ring... read more

This website is intended to give news on layoffs. Not sit there and trash the company you were perfectly OK with before layoffs. I work for VMW, and have for over 5 years. And I've seen good and bad times. Ive seen changes and Ive seen people come... read more
Anybody else hoping that the whole Dell wanting to buy VMware thing falls through and falls through quickly? Dell is in so much trouble right now, just visit their page on this site and you'll see how many layoffs they've been having lately. Being... read more
Does anyone know the European situation? Are there plans to cut jobs as well and if so which BUs are affected? Thanks
So much for Trump tax breaks. All Horizon dev and QE will be in Bangalore by end of 2018. Fast, cheap and sloppy is the mind set. Retaining customers is not a priority.
Anyone from Bangalore office can please confirm what is the total compensation they are giving while firing?
While working at VMware I scratched my head every time I would read the reviews on glassdoor.com. I didn't understand why the employees gave this company so much praise and loyalty! I only noticed one review that seemed accurate to me (IT SWEATSHOP)... read more
Now that it has been a few days, can we say for sure that this round of layoffs is done? Frankly, I can't figure out why we had these in the first place considering how well VMware is doing, so more would not really come as as big of surprise. I... read more
Does anyone know the total layoff number?
This was quite upsetting to me, partly because I knew several of the people that were cut, but mostly because the affected people that I knew had worked so hard and were extremely well liked by their customers, colleagues and managers. What does this... read more
My team is getting impacted in PA and AW team in ATL. Anyone has total number? EUC only has directors and VPs. It is very political environment
The executive staff are completely untrustworthy. Their EPIC mantra is hypocritical. I seriously doubt vmw will continue to be rated as one of the best companies to work for. Too often they are letting hard working people go while rewarding... read more
Many people laid off in Palo Alto at all levels. 150 in marketing total. Company wants to move marketing to Atlanta we hear.
Will todays layoff in VMWare will affect the green card process?
Asking for the people on H1B because finding another job is a tricky business and gap in employment is not something you want to ever explain to anyone.
Everybody was on edge here from this morning, but now it looks like the storm has passed. Is it just my wishful thinking, or are we safe for now? If it's true that 150 people were hit globally, then I doubt there is anybody left who has not been... read more
Does anybody know yet what kind of severance is VMware offering to those laid off? This does not look like it is nearly done, so it'd be nice to prepare in advance, know what to expect. Also, good luck to those who were laid off today, I'm truly... read more
So far we know that Broomfield, Co, IT Ops, Cambridge, MA and EUC are affected by today's layoffs. Can people add here if there are any more locations or departments that are being hit today? Also, if anybody knows if anything is planned for Atlanta... read more
It's happening in Broomfield, Co right now.
coming Tuesday is the day is what everyone is saying in the office. I've heard a similar thing today at the office, but there was was very little else mentioned. It'd be nice to know where the rumor came from, so we know if it is credible or if we... read more
Overheard a serious office conversation late Friday between high level VPs about a massive layoff next year. Multiple groups and projects will be affected. Good luck
Things can be better, improved and stellar, especially, sure sure, because I hear that we might have job reductions and layoffs in Palo Alto.
Sounds like 50-100 people this time around. Anyone know which groups were impacted?
whole team is going under as some changes in leadership are expected. next week is going to be ugly. talks already started of Sofia,Bulgaria; Bangalore,India; Burlington, MA next up is palo alto
Some might say VMware recognized the threat levied against them by public cloud far too late; similar to Cisco, VMware's core business is not aligned with customers who want to move workloads to public cloud providers. More public cloud workloads =... read more
Makes you wonder if VirtZilla is even relevant in today's day and age
Are you all prepared for the bloody Monday again. 1500 total RIF announced
Welcome to the great Vmware Layoff carnival, celebrated every year in the month of January, where competent engineers and managers who have groomed and nurtured teams are unceremoniously given the boot. Vmware believes in indiscriminately and... read more
