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.

Work From Home?

VMware leaders had no assurances for employees as to whether Broadcom would keep existing work-from-home agreements. Chief People Officer Betsy Sutter said the firm is talking with Broadcom, but had no assurances.

“The chat is blowing up on work from home. I’ve never seen it move that quickly,” she said. “You know, our commitment to a distributed workforce and standing up a distributed workforce model with choice and flexibility at the core remains. Those conversations with Broadcom have not begun. I hear you. Clearly I see it in the chat, how critically important this is to you to have those conversations. But for right now, we’re going to continue to build out a distributed workforce model and culture.”
