With Chan, VP Product Development, also quitting. Investors are extremely anxious what will happen to VMware's IP. after all the brains that made all those softwares is what you need in this extremely hostile market conditions.

Analysts have said investors are concerned that more key employees will leave in the wake of the executive departures.

"We're obviously sorry to see Paul go, but turnover is inevitable at any company. VMware is putting initiatives in place to retain key employees," Gallo said.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
