There is a lot of uncertainty with VMware at the moment. This is all due to the pending acquisition by Broadcom. There are a lot of unknowns for the staff and customers about what the company will look like in the future. I certainly have some concerns mainly just with the unknown. However, VMware has a great reputation for doing the right thing around its staff, customers, and the wider world.
Yesterday the entire company was off on one of VMware’s so-called EPIC days. I spent the day with my family on the beach.
VMware also gave all employees $1300 dollars for donation through their foundation to a charity of your choice. I decided to give mine to the RNLI. Being based in Poole for the last couple of years and having a friend who volunteers for the RNLI in Ireland, I thought they were a great recipient of this very generous donation from VMware.
