Anyone been through retaliatory firing? I've been at vmware for 5 years. My manager (who I had for about 6 month) threatened to fire me. I know the reason. It is pure retaliation. What advice is out there? NSBU Palo Alto

Discuss in this thread!
A probe into vmware security fraud started yesterday by the ex California attorney general. Glad to see this fraudulent, racist company under some investigation. Hopefully, investigation for The failing startup acquisitions that end up in the... — read more
No sure what is the reason... covid-19?
It is sad that Pat talks about business force redistribution as his justification of the racism, the retaliation behind the layoffs. Come see NSBU, both NSX and VeloCloud. You will see retaliation first hand. You get a director firing people... — read more

I noticed a trend, and wanted to see any data we can get around it in the USA. If you are on an H1b and were part of lay off comment with a 0, if you are a legal resident, citizen etc. put +1 . Its anonymous so don't fret.
I'm kind of lost with all the vague info floating around...
Do you think VMware is better off with or without the outgoing top folks?
Apparently VMWare sub, Pivotal, doesn’t get it but at least the news gets out of VMWare horrible yearly layoffs: https://www.crn.com/news/data-center/pivotal-employees-to-vmware-do-not-betray-our-trust-with-layoffs
Take a stab.
Let's use this thread to post any jobs that may be helpful for the folks that were RIF-ed today
Not a good day.
Boss called this morning. I don't envy his position. Got sacked after 6 years with the company and nothing, but positive reviews year after year. Nice severance package and an opportunity to find another job within the company. This is just how it... — read more
Meetings have been booked and internals have been laid off.
That is what a manger told me. Best wishes.
A lot of people got 1:1's set up yesterday(5 in the HCS platform engg team, 2 in SRE are the ones I know) at EUC Bangalore. It was always clear this dev owns quality b—s— was a way to move the QAs into dev teams and fire them stating "business... — read more

Never have these meetings scheduled in the past and only scheduled for 30 minutes.
I have an unexpected 1:1 meeting scheduled with my manager tomorrow. She typically do not do things like this, so I am pretty certain I'll get the axe. I am in Burlington, Ontario, Canada...
Yearly layoffs happening today. It started in Europe, let’s see how it goes in the US. Not-so-competent management letting go of people they don’t like to hide their own incompetence. If you get an invite for a 1-2-1 with your manager, you... — read more
Do you know what are top three locations in terms of employee count? Also, how many work at Palo Alto?
Yearly small layoff (1-2%) is coming next week. I've been told HR is mobilized.
Expect a meeting invite with your manager on January 21st. Good luck...
This is a strategy and well established history for vmware. Acquire small startups, then lay-off the good minds. Another acquisition is in the baking (in a few weeks). Little they know, they will be crushed. Welcome to Vmware.
I feel that the leadership really is out of touch. They don’t see racism that we suffer from. Instead, the empower Indian directors to control minorities and promote Indians. Oh well, we received another survey. Nothing is taken into... — read more

Is this going to be an interesting year as it relates to VMware Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Managers were asked to specify heads to cut off for this January 2019. You know the drill, managers will want to get rid off anyone who threat their own job. Get your resume updated if you are too good for this toxic racist place.
Heard layoff is scheduled for next month. Good luck
Anybody has any info here?
