What VMware Workers Need To Know If Broadcom Deal Closes

O’Ryan Johnson

“It’s OK for us to have some questions and concerns based on what has happened in the past,” VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram tells employees.

Broadcom’s Past Behavior May Not Indicate Its Plans For VMware

Broadcom’s mixed reputation among CA and Symantec customers – two of its previous buys -- is driving concern from employees about customer relationships, as well as their own jobs. VMware president Sumit tried to allay worried employees, by saying it seems, this time, Broadcom wants to do “the opposite” of what it did with those companies.

“Listen, the customer reputation of Broadcom can be negative and also the team members and the actions they have taken in the past with their software businesses have impacted the employees and team members …. Just because they have done what they have done with Symantec and CA is (not necessarily) something that they intend to do with VMware, because we’ve heard quite the opposite so far.”
