Time to leave

It has become patently obvious that there is no future at VMware. When layoffs are the main and only go to for management to solve the mounting issues, then it becomes obvious how inept and desperate they are. My advice to everybody is to start... —  read more

Do we have an idea how many were affected in the end?

I know that’s hard to figure out, but does anyone have an idea how many people were affected by layoffs and, if somebody knows, what number were they targeting? In other words, can we expect more, or is that about it for now?

Stop laying off our best people!

Honestly, it's like the goal is to leave all the dead weight and cut anybody who actually has any knowledge and contributes to the company. Each time when we have more cuts, I'm left in disbelief when I see who is gone. Who is the genius who makes... —  read more

What's with hiding the number?

Why exactly is WMware refusing to say how many people were laid off as part of the latest layoffs round - especially here, in the US? What is it they are trying to hide? Could it be that the numbers are much larger than anybody suspects and they just... —  read more

Farewell

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... —  read more

I've seen a list with 8 names on it today, all let go. I am hearing the cut may be a bit bigger but that's all what I know so far. Maybe someone else can chime in on the timing, etc.

January 9 layoffs?

Typically on Jan9th every year - as clockwork; management decides to cull areas of business I'm somewhat new at VMware, so I can't tell if this is true or not? It'd be nice to be prepared if it is, because I'm assuming that it'll be "last in first... —  read more
