Jan 2019 layoffs are being prepared

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.

Back to the fake EPIC2 survey

Another manipulation from the HR to deceive staff into talking about the toxic culture at the various business units. Then retaliation will be the basis for next layoffs. Managers get access to the individual feedback and that becomes the basis of... —  read more

Data breach at NSBU may trigger layoffs

The data breach that was discovered at NSBU might trigger layoffs. I heard a few directors and senior directors jobs are on the line. It depends if customers are worried about private data exposed.

Since Jan last week till date, I have had 5 rounds of interviews (telephonic and in-person). They would occur randomly - suddenly two rounds over a period of three days and then again a lull for two weeks and so on. Recruiter doesn't respond to... —  read more

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

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?

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

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

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

It is a lie that this layoff is rebalancing of workforce

It is a lie that this layoff is rebalancing of workforce. The layoffs at EUC workspace 1 intelligence team targeted only the people who were hired via an acquisition in March 2018. The manager did not personally like the people and because he is the... —  read more

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
