VMware Employees – is WFH temporarily/ must you live close to the office you are “hired” at?

Hi everyone, this is aimed at VMware employees but if someone else has knowledge of the situation please feel free to chime in.

Long story short – Job A is posted at an office that is 1 hour from me but in a different country than I live in. Job B is posted at another office in the country I live in but the city is several hours away. Both jobs are saying “eligible for working remotely” which obviously makes sense for now.

Job A and Job B is nearly identical.

I would prefer Office B quite a bit but being several hours away would make it extremely difficult to actually go in to the office for meetings, etc. Whereas Office A could be driven daily if need be. I have no desire to move anywhere near Office B – the main reason for wanting Office B is because less taxes and benefits in my home country would be nice.

Big question I know … but neither of the job locations will require a visa / sponsorship.

Should I apply for both? Will that get me on the naughty list if they see me do this? I really want to potentially explore these opportunities but I don’t know how I should proceed…

TLDR – if I apply for a job at a home office that is several hours away from the “location” am I going to be screwed in a year or so?

Thank you all.
