Hiroshima. & GSS are the poor shadows attempting to deal with the racist, ignorant do-nothing sysadmins who feel like the method to troubleshoot an issue is open a ticket.
From my personal experience it does not matter how good you are at your work, it is much more important that you are someone's favorite. I would be able to understand that if the favorites were chosen according to their achievements, knowledge... — read more
It's not easy for me to quit but I finally realized it is the right time. If I'm to stay here, I'll never get to be the kind of engineer I've always wanted to be. VMware put a break on my career progression and it's been like that for a few years. I... — read more

I heard rumors that management overseeing the products in the 7U3 debacle just got more responsibility and power? If true, I guest the buck stops way, way, way over there!
I am surprised at how absolutely sure they are that everything will be fine if they replace an experienced and talented person with someone who has almost no experience and literally does not know what he is doing. Of course everything is going... — read more

The only positive thing I can say about working at VMware is that it beats being unemployed with no health insurance. That's it. That's the only thing I could think of that is worse than working here. Sometimes I think that flipping burgers at... — read more

Heard VMware will buy Forcepoint to enter into the security market to compete against PANW and Fortinet. Is that true?
But not in this company. For those who say that grass is nowhere much greener, I say that it certainly is. Not only are people paid more, have better benefits and less stress in other companies, but they can finally start enjoying their... — read more
the math doesnt add up why would vmware need to do layoffs wouldnt talent retention be worth gold and layoffs seem the opposite during a time when people are leaving? not seeing the calculus

Post any information about potential or actual VMware layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
This is the company with the most toxic atmosphere I have worked in. The manager is only there to spread the bad vibes. That is not what we need and nor does the company. What can be fixed is the atmosphere. However, they don't seem to care enough to... — read more
VMWARE continues to amuse its employees. If you received Alex Tosheff’s email, you will see. “Managers maybe included in the review of an employee’s request for accommodation as the scope of work..” This is a declared violation of HIPPA. I... — read more
Without any doubt, the situation is getting worse in this company. That is why it is not surprising that everyone is demoralized and more active than ever in looking for new jobs. I just wonder when it all went downhill and could it have been... — read more
However, what happens when this company needs talented people? How will it attract them then? I know a lot of people who turn their heads at the very mention of the name of this company. Perhaps the leadership needed to think things through... — read more

At a time when VMware is trying to transform itself with new products and is being spun off from Dell the list of executives who have left this year is growing. There is no better way to signal your confidence in the future than voting with your... — read more
And so it begins. Will be interesting to see how many employees comply with the December 8 deadline, and how many will simply leave. I'm not anti-tax, but am anti-mandate, and would like to see enough take a stand that it rattles Palo Alto to the... — read more
Does anybody know what happens when you submit your two weeks notice? Are you expected to work for the remaining two weeks or are you told not to come in from that point on? I'm about to change companies and I'm trying to figure out how to organize... — read more
Layoffs at VMware never stop. It's an ongoing process and if you're looking for job security you need to start looking somewhere else.
VMware rarely lays off just 15 employees. Something tells me another much bigger round could be coming our way if not this week, then the next. Unless I'm wrong and small-scale layoffs have been happening for a while now without me noticing, which I... — read more
Surprised nothing about layoffs today. It sounds like the a number of people under WW bookings were laid off today.
Talks started of the Jan’22 layoff cycle. SEBU and EUC changes on the horizon.
The Any App, Any User, Any Device tagline is total BS when the employees have to deal with so many MSFT dependencies, InfoSec roadblocks, and tools that just don't work. This company has no business telling others how to deliver apps and... — read more

Then all the managers - from the lowest to the highest level - are positively shocked when most of the employees are satisfied with doing the bare minimum. If you want your employees to give a damn, then you need to treat them better. For so many of... — read more
If I fail to find a job within the next month, even though it’s not a good idea, I’m thinking of giving notice anyways. It has become really unbearable here. I'm wondering, if someone came who really knew how and wanted to fix this company so... — read more

I had a horrible experience recently. It's amazing how backstabbing has become so widespread here in the last few years and how it has become part of corporate culture. The bigger the backstabber, the more successful one becomes here. In this... — read more
He's in over his head.
[because WMware is depressing] When I was looking for a job here I really couldn’t even imagine it was so depressing a place. Obviously I didn’t do my research well. I believe that many more people are deeply disappointed in this company and that... — read more
I can't possibly understand why they decide to buy startups that everyone knows will be a debacle? Unbelievable. Is it incompetence? Are there any reasons I don’t understand? I hope I'm wrong, but I'm almost certain that it won't be long before they... — read more
We heard today a senior employee is leaving from TS. (Female Snr Director). Are you losing count of the leavers? Why so many?
I hate my job and I hate my boss. Being laid off would be a blessing right now!
Another cycle of layoffs started to take shape for the Jan. This cycle is Epic with all new reorg that vmware has gone through
