Similar to "The Matrix Revolutions" movie, his role is to execute 'HPE Next' bringing the Company to "levels of survival we are prepared to accept." Most of "The Architect" phrases perfectly fit the demise of HPE... "I am the Architect. I created the... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
With old CEO gone and a new one in, it is a new day. And hopefully a new beginning and a promising future for this company built by legendary Bill and Dave. I hope the cronies of the old CEO also leave, cuz if they don't leave, this company will... read more
I recently had the chance to be involved in a bid where HPE was one of the participants. Hmmm. Destroy my life and that of my family after decades of superb service and want me to buy from you? Really?
Has anyone had success with requesting a WFR? I found another job already so I figure it couldn't hurt to ask. Anyone successful with this?
The continued gutting of Storage continued and other sites hit bad too. At this point who will assist the customers!!!
I woke up to a text this morning from a West coast co-worker? Bonuses across the board. Can anyone confirm? I have not heard back from that person.
Meg is going to DreamWorks as CEO for their new mobile video venture /
An interesting and very likely observation was made by another contributor in a thread. Because it was buried a bit, it was unlikely to get the attention it deserves. His or her hypothesis is that the company HPE was never intended to succeed. The... read more
Peeking over into the boards for other companies people are jumping to, most of them look just as bad. In fact there's one big company in particular that looks 10 times more toxic. Is this just the reality of IT? Considering switching to a completely... read more
Today is Monday. Did the reductions continue?
Someone ran an LDAP script and came up with 16,892 US employee count. If there are only 50K HPE employees, this means that there are only 34% in the US. During Carly's time, she wanted a 60 US/40 WW mix. Then Hurd changed it to 40 US/60 WW. I heard... read more
Looks like they are going to let go all contractors, so storage and other teams will be hit very hard. 3par will become a even bigger mess than it already is. This company is going downhill fast!!!
Hi. I was fired from the old HP in 2010 (not WFR, but fired "with cause" - long story), and I moved on with my life. I currently have a Senior Director position at a small Network Security startup, and HPE is in advanced conversations to acquire us... read more
because HPE just bought the company for $5.5bn .. the asset will be rebranded Workforce Control and sit along other overvalued assets such as Aruba
If the a majority of posts that were deleted on a thread titled, "Adding a placeholder here for people to share their HPE Jan 16th layoff announcements stories." some how constitute a violation of use then what value does "thelayoff.com" actually... read more
Historically (at least for the last 5-6 years), the day after the MLK Holiday in the US has been a brutal WW layoff announcement day in HPE. Good luck, everyone! Hope things work well for all of you.
HPE announced back in September 2017 that the regions (APJ, Americas, EMEA) will be eliminated. Also 80 out of 160 countries will be closed. Pointnext Advisory and Professional Services (formerly known as TS Consulting) will only operate in 24... read more
Anybody believes that HPE can actually recover after everything that has happened in the past few years? I was worrying about next round of layoffs before it hit me this is my reality now. There is no escaping layoffs anymore. No matter how many... read more
I’ve heard a lot of gossip about next Tuesday, but hall rumors are just that. Does anyone have any specific numbers/locations? Without wanting to be rude (just as our beloved President), I’m just interested in US sites and not any other s—thole HPE... read more
You can hate what Meg did but if she could have saved HPE/Q, she would have gone down as the greatest CEO in the known universe. Hating her for her inability to fix the massive damage before she came along isn't fair. It was too big to manage. Simply... read more
I'm on the list for Jan 16. they're shutting down our company. they bought us 10 years ago. we went from 250 employees to 45 in that time. i know of others on the list, but we'll see how generous they are in setting people free
The country I am working initiated works council negotiations. Impacted positions is about 16%. The process will start next week and finish by end of February.
For 2018, can we keep it to confirmed layoffs instead of, I was walking down the hall and I overheard somebody at the water fountain or in the bathroom stall or typically this is when layoffs happen in the past. It's hpe, there will always be some... read more
I was let go 8 months ago. Not a big deal. (And I live paycheck to paycheck with no savings) I've had a dozen jobs in a 20 year career. You guys with 35 years at HP complaining...you have already ridden gravy train with bisquit wheels. Loyaltu not... read more
Has anybody heard of a layoff next month? Heard some talk in the hallways today so was wondering if anyone else has heard anything in Palo Alto hallways
Historically, the day after the MLK Holiday is the second most brutal day of layoffs announcements in HPE - only surpassed by the ones done mid-October. Tic toc tic toc tic toc...
Wiki says HPE had 45,000 Sept 2017. Anyone want to put in a guess for count in Sept 2018? I'm hoping for 50,000 buy I still believe the Lions will win the Superbowl in my lifetime. My guess, with spinoff of pointnext (speculation on my part), 25,000... read more
During this Yuletide time in our lives I want to thank all the employees (current and blacklisted) of HPE over the years and want them to take the time to reflect and enjoy this time with their family, friends and colleagues. Although my lay day is... read more
Merry E F F I N G Christmas to all ... especially to Megtonio, their minions and the BoD.
Why the hostility by some posters towards people who are clearly distressed and upset at their (the) situation? Clearly many of the older workers at HPE were impacted by the WFR, chances are they were top performers and thus expensive to keep. When... read more
I was told by a coworker he heard from somebody a few steps above that layoffs have been put on hold until next year for "optics" reasons. I know we've had layoffs around Christmas time before, but maybe they've learned something from that and we can... read more
I know that if you are WFR'd from HPE you cannot work for them again (blackballed) - but can you apply/work for HPI?
With the seasonally empty buildings the execs are letting their guards down and having hallway conversations that would normally take place in secret. Today while in a breakroom in the Palo Alto office I overheard two execs discuss in detail the... read more
I got a job offer at HPE and DXC Technology this week after several months layoff. Should I take the HPE or DXC job . I have heard both companies are solid in their space but also read bad things about them especially about Megtonio. What should I... read more
So as we approach Christmas and the spirit fills the air Stockings neatly hung by the chimney with care Santa Claus will not be coming even though he still cares It's because greedy Meg Whitman has already been there She's stolen all the presents for... read more

The Wall-Street-beloved Meg Whitman laid off thousands of employees during her tenure (destroying countless families), and also destroyed the legacy of Hewlett and Packard - with Antonio Neri chartered to finish the remaining dirty work. I get... read more
On Dec 5th of last year my husband was laid off. We just had a working visa and had to leave in 60 days . Last X'mas was the worse holiday we've ever had. Fortunately, my husband found a new job and new company gave him stock and other benefits ... read more
