Moving from AWS to VMware

Hello,

I'm about to give two week notice to join VMware. I'm wondering if VMware is considered as competitor for AWS and I would let go on the same day ?

Did any one moved from AWS to VMware ?

    Try to get severance at AWS, you might save someone from a PIP

      T-Mobile, not sure if you understood his great plan. Basically Amazon wants to act like it has a high bar and fire the bottom performers. If the OP acts like a bottom performer, he/she will get fired instead of someome else. And firing also means that he/she would get a severance!

      I don't know, but I heard that getting fired from PIP will never get you hired in Amazon again.

      If you're in the Bay Area it'lll take more than a lifetime to tour around all the high profile companies let a lone the start-ups. Our generation already missed Sun and Netscape!

    VMW is where I want to go when I'm ready to retire. Really good work life balance; stock should stick around for another decade

    I don't get that stupid thing with AWS.
    Walking out ppl who are going to competitors.
    I mean... If I were to steal stuff from AWS... I would do it BEFORE I give notice....

    Trade carefully. Research on team you are going to join. If product is sustainable or not. Vm is well known for quick lay offs and dumping people

    Sounds like a career blunder.
