900 staff expected to be axed this week
VMware is expected to axe around 900 jobs this week as the fall out from the $67 billion Dell acquisition of EMC continues.
VMware is owned by EMC and EMC is also in the middle of a redundancy programme on the run up to the acquisition as part of a cost-cutting drive.
The cuts may be confirmed tomorrow when the company posts its latest financial results, but VMware staff are already bracing themselves on jobs boards such as this one:
900 job cuts would represent around 5 percent of VMware’s workforce of 18,000. VMware made 900 job cuts in 2013 as part of a restructuring exercise to focus on software defined data centre operations.
