Now that it has been a few days, can we say for sure that this round of layoffs is done? Frankly, I can't figure out why we had these in the first place considering how well VMware is doing, so more would not really come as as big of surprise. I... read more

Does anyone know the total layoff number?
This was quite upsetting to me, partly because I knew several of the people that were cut, but mostly because the affected people that I knew had worked so hard and were extremely well liked by their customers, colleagues and managers. What does this... read more
My team is getting impacted in PA and AW team in ATL. Anyone has total number? EUC only has directors and VPs. It is very political environment
The executive staff are completely untrustworthy. Their EPIC mantra is hypocritical. I seriously doubt vmw will continue to be rated as one of the best companies to work for. Too often they are letting hard working people go while rewarding... read more
Many people laid off in Palo Alto at all levels. 150 in marketing total. Company wants to move marketing to Atlanta we hear.
Will todays layoff in VMWare will affect the green card process?
Asking for the people on H1B because finding another job is a tricky business and gap in employment is not something you want to ever explain to anyone.
Everybody was on edge here from this morning, but now it looks like the storm has passed. Is it just my wishful thinking, or are we safe for now? If it's true that 150 people were hit globally, then I doubt there is anybody left who has not been... read more
Does anybody know yet what kind of severance is VMware offering to those laid off? This does not look like it is nearly done, so it'd be nice to prepare in advance, know what to expect. Also, good luck to those who were laid off today, I'm truly... read more
So far we know that Broomfield, Co, IT Ops, Cambridge, MA and EUC are affected by today's layoffs. Can people add here if there are any more locations or departments that are being hit today? Also, if anybody knows if anything is planned for Atlanta... read more
It's happening in Broomfield, Co right now.
coming Tuesday is the day is what everyone is saying in the office. I've heard a similar thing today at the office, but there was was very little else mentioned. It'd be nice to know where the rumor came from, so we know if it is credible or if we... read more
Overheard a serious office conversation late Friday between high level VPs about a massive layoff next year. Multiple groups and projects will be affected. Good luck
Things can be better, improved and stellar, especially, sure sure, because I hear that we might have job reductions and layoffs in Palo Alto.
Sounds like 50-100 people this time around. Anyone know which groups were impacted?
whole team is going under as some changes in leadership are expected. next week is going to be ugly. talks already started of Sofia,Bulgaria; Bangalore,India; Burlington, MA next up is palo alto
Some might say VMware recognized the threat levied against them by public cloud far too late; similar to Cisco, VMware's core business is not aligned with customers who want to move workloads to public cloud providers. More public cloud workloads =... read more
Makes you wonder if VirtZilla is even relevant in today's day and age
Are you all prepared for the bloody Monday again. 1500 total RIF announced
Welcome to the great Vmware Layoff carnival, celebrated every year in the month of January, where competent engineers and managers who have groomed and nurtured teams are unceremoniously given the boot. Vmware believes in indiscriminately and... read more
Seems like today was business as usual in Palo Alto. Is this the calm before the storm, or are we out of the woods?
The death spiral continues..
Here we go
Layoffs happening in Cambridge as we speak. No one is safe . So ugly.
When will my job be safe? Never - never never! Right, that's our modern capitalism - that's probably why there are rumors about layoffs in Palo Alto.
I just got shown the door along(normal layoff) with some others in my team but I don't hear much from around the company. Is it just us?
Hello everyone. I'm a Software engineer with 3+ years full-time work experience in industry making 110k per year in base salary as of now. I interviewed at VMware for MTS position in Palo Alto recently and I got a verbal confirmation from the... read more
This site used to be reliable. In uncertain times it provided true answers and accurate information. Unfortunately this has turned into a pissing ground for either disgruntled employees or competition. -VMware has had its tough times. However Q2 has... read more
