Topics regarding layoffs at VMware
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?
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

Talks of EUC reorg in Oct? Anyone?
Article is from a few months ago, but it still really says all about VMware and how it treats its employees. 65.77% employees fear being laid off. I'm surprised it's not even more... — read more
A few layoffs scheduled for Tuesday 12
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
I heard from 4 employees who were laid off last time that they received a specific training about age discrimination 1 month before they got laid off. Their managers trapped them into discussion of age discrimination and recorded them with no... — read more
There was a rumor of May layoffs at VMware some time ago - did that prove to be wrong or can we expect something to happen in the next few weeks? It'd be nice to get some info on it wither way, just to know just how much I need to worry (or not to... — read more
EUC workspace 1 is under fire after very weak year performance. Layoffs are being escalated. This in addition to the too many harrassment and retaliatory practices that has been reported. Several VPs are under scrutiny in what appears to be a big... — read more
Usually, it is in July. But this time it is being prepared. Confirming company direction in hiring Cisco like culture. The policy is hire as many and the kick out who does not become obedient.
Hows the Airwatch team / business doing ? Have been coming across few PM / Dev openings in Bangalore. Is it a good team to work with ? Is VMware continuing to look at it as an important entity and continuing to invest in it ? Is it prone to layoffs... — read more

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
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?
I can’t get a picture of what positions were the main target of these layoffs. Does anyone else have any info? Or maybe the main criteria was to eliminate a little in all departments.
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

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. 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
Is there going to be any reorg or VMware Layoffs in 2019?
Can we expect more layoffs today?
Mostly people from Testing were fired . 3 months severance package
Does anybody know if any US locations will be impacted with layoffs today? I'm nervous because it's the end of the month, and it's been mentioned several times that the last week of January is usually when layoffs happen at VMware. Add to that... — read more
Anyone heard any rumours about cuts in the UK yet? My manager was suggesting it might be a possibility in the next 6 months.

It usually happens in the week of 20 - 30 of Jan. In my team its happened on 27 Jan and once on the 24 Jan 2017. A friend had weekly 1-1 and no one doubted it. They usually chuck out people with 2.5 to 5 years in VMware. New hires dont need to worry... — read more
Layoffs seem to be all over the place, let's try to consolidate Bangalore related info in this thread.
Hearing some chatter that PG may be leaving soon.
