    Default Software Engineers (Web Developers, etc), what tech company?

    If you had a choice, then at what company would you prefer to work?

    Just make a choice.

    I'm curious.

    If I were to go back to being a software engineer (and were limited to those choices), I would choose Google, Apple, or VMware.

    Those companies still seem like growth companies.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I'd prefer the Google one, and Yahoo.

    I don't know why, just go on my first instinct.

    If I had my choice it would be Google.

    And the thieves go bump in the night.

    What do you think about all the layoffs?

    Given the economic condition, which one of these places would you know say is a good one to work for?

    Yahoo and Ebay would be the two least secure in my opinion, as they aren't doing too well, VMWare might be as well. The others are probably all secure I'd think.

    I know VMWare's stock hasn't been doing well, but I think they just went IPO near the end of last year--horrible timing.

    Also, their technology holds an awful lot of promise--you hear about people running Vista on a Mac using VMWare and having it run better than Vista itself.

    Visualization is a very powerful concept, and it has hardware support now.
