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
90% of my team was laid off on Monday of this week. Those of us on vacation Monday got our notices yesterday. Merry Christmas to us.....All US based, our work moving overseas. So yes they do lay off folks before Christmas. They don’t give a sh--... 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
This was confirmed to us during an All Hands for the OGC.
At least we're not DXC!
They can’t keep dangling the carrot every year, then offer some lame excuse about not giving bonuses. Morale cannot be lower, employees will not be motivated to work nights, weekends, holidays, etc., for nothing in return (as happens now). The place... read more
...to win over the customers (existing and potential), wall street, and even the employees. He has been pretty active in social media. Even if he genuinely wants a successful HPE, the damage made by his predecessor is just way too much to revert. In... read more
I have not heard of any WFR on the Monday after Thanksgiving. I expect Megtonio to not WFR anyone until mid-January, just before Q1 ends. For now, Megtonio and their Megnions are having a party at HPE Discover spending millions for 3 days this week... read more

Have you seen some of the comments posted lately on several HPE-related threads? Megtonio is mad!
Finally the market is seeing the truth behind the smoke and mirrors: "-Despite reporting in-line results in Q4, HPE stock fell on news of CEO Meg Whitman's departure. -HPE fundamentals are still a complete mess, with declining revenues in its core... read more
If you may recall, they changed the 401K match policy. Now they pay the match only to those were with the company between Jan 1 2017 and Dec 1 2017. That about what that means in the context of layoffs in 2017. A conservative estimate is they laid... read more
HPE said Tuesday that Whitman will step down from the CEO role on February 1, more than six years after she joined what was then called Hewlett Packard. Whitman will remain on the board. Antonio Neri, currently the president of HPE, will succeed... read more
Meg's parting shot, there will be no bonuses for HPE because we didn't perform. You know she will hit all her kpis and make millions. Then an engineer friend of mine at Aruba tells me they are getting bonuses but are told not to tell anyone at HPE... read more

Meg is out /
I do. I'm so sick and tired of all the pessimistic comments from people that haven't been with the Company for a long while. The comments seem to come over and over from the same bunch of old losers that were kicked out and can't get over it. Get a... read more

Microfocus HPE had layoffs at Pleasanton office last month. The media completely ignored it.
... Things will be so different this time, so come back to papa. Much lower salaries, less benefits, at least 70% of the population 25 years old or younger... You know this is what you want. Come on... Give me a hug and kiss my chin! DXC Technology... read more
It is unlikely WFR notices will be given out on Thanksgiving week next week. In the past, some notices were given after Thanksgiving break but not before. HPE Executives found out that it is bad PR to be laying off people during the Christmas season... read more

or in our case, the ship went down because of the captain - I now give up and will resign tomorrow - looking for a new job without having to look over my shoulder has to be better than this and I am worth more than what HP is doing to us all.
