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

Topics regarding layoffs at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
Unfortunately it's too late... "(...)Hewlett Packard Enterprise Chief Executive Meg Whitman will step down as CEO early next year. President Antonio Neri will take on the role of CEO as of Feb. 1, 2018, and both Whitman and Neri will be on the... 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
/ HPE has quietly begun to lay off yet more programmers and software engineers. / HPE still supports OpenStack in... 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
I've been with Atos for the last 2 years (after being kicked out by HPE). During those two years NOT A SINGLE ONE of the customers I've engaged with has adopted the HPE IT solution that has been presented to them as one of our catalog options. If... 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.
...are we the only ones that will be "penalized" for the natural disasters? I don't want to be an --- and directly mention our Caribbean partners, but I feel all of this is very unfair. Relocating operations will result in a lot of people being... read more
Short Version is… At HPE, because of constant layoffs, layoffs being informed by your performance reviews… And with your performance reviews, via “grading on the curve”, making it such that you have GOT to make your co-workers look BAD, so that you... read more
In addition to me being laid off today, with 25+ years I heard of many others across the USA.
According to the geniuses on this site, every time an HPE executive sells stock, that means they are leaving the company, doing something nefarious, or preparing for layoffs. Or, they could just want to make money, as there is no point in holding... read more
If one gets WFR'd, are we required to transfer our HP Pension to an IRA? I have been with HP/HPE for 23 years now. I received a mail about options to transfer out the pension to an IRA. Maybe because I am with HPE. I ignored it and kept it where it... read more
Laid off in May after almost 18 years. Oh and who is doing my work now... someone in Costa Rica they hired full time 1 week before laying me off...gotta love it...not
Good luck everyone.
Just another method to disconnect from our history.
HP/HPE has got to be the worst company I've ever worked for. I had to code solutions that all of the offshore saviors couldn't deliver on to save their lives! I understand the "why" (money) of outsourcing but I truly believe companies that outsource... read more
What is HPE's professed core business? We know its not software - that got spun out. We know its not consulting or services - that was spun as well. We know its not computers or printers - also spun. We know its not test equipment - spun long ago. We... read more
Now everything makes sense... I've been hearing for weeks that we (employees based in Houston) were going to take a big hit before the year end. The offices "relocation" is nothing more than the perfect excuse to slash the current staff from 3,000 to... read more
Seriously, I can't remember the last time we were not given an unrealistic deadline and didn't end up with very frustrated at best and pissed off at worst clients. Why promise something that can't be achieved to get a client just to lose that same... read more
So, HPE just laid off a massive number of people in Houston, all ages, experiences, genders, roles - makes no sense. Not sure about director level and up - they seem to be holding on for now - maybe to manage the jobs outsourced until their... read more
A good friend of my wife works in HR Global Communications and was asked to “track down this guy” (referring to the author of the “goliath’s prophecy” article). After quickly checking, I told my wife... For what? To give him a warning? To fire him?... read more
The worst decision I have ever taken in my life was to join HPE. I was working for a great company with high employee morale. I am repeating for leaving such a good company and stick here in HPE with fear of job loss. I see few jobs coming here to... read more
In my over three decades of work experience I've never worked at a place where morale was as low as it is at HPE now. People are so stressed and disheartened that it's become a palpable feeling in the office. It's depressing, mildly put. It's not... read more
So I managed a WW program. In this layoff they laid me off and two other region leads. Boss actually asked me if he could call me after I was laid off if he had any questions on managing the program........to boot he is from Europe and when I told... read more
Although the promise of HR "working" to match jobs to profiles not one person out of 14 found a job from that effort.....if you look in the job posting senior positions are being filled in Mexico and Bucharest
I’ve been only 5 months here at HPE (just graduated from College this past summer), and I’m already regretting my decision. I have two peers teasing me all the time saying that I should have read an old satirical post/article mocking the final demise... read more
It's two days before the end of the quarter and I will find out today whether or not I will be with HPE on Wednesday. Our manager scheduled 1-1 meetings with each of us on his team today. He blew them all off with no explanation last week. I know... read more
Seriously. If you live in the bay area, and there are literally tens of thousands of job openings, better paid, better benefits - why in the world you move over to a decent company? Even if you are older or whatever, they are still looking for a... read more
i know two people for sure were affected by today's layoffs. I believe these were pre-notices, instead of the typical Monday morning. But yes, 2 that I know. Both ong term employees from early CPQ days and one from Digital acquisition.
Micro Focus wants a 70% profit margin and they plan to get it by putting products in maintenance mode and WFR-ing the people. While the official list of people isn't public, we were told in an all hands meeting of a couple products that are going in... read more
Our company suffered thru a series of really bad CEOs but now it has gotten really really bad. Looking at the product line innovation, results, profits, and revenue - comparing that to competition - everyone at C-level should be eliminated and their... read more
Ever since stocks were first bought and sold, investors have sought to find company metrics that would separate the winners from the losers. Sales growth, earnings growth, earnings per share — even CEO pay. Now it turns out that companies that are... read more
A few people keep posting in different threads about a huge layoff at HPE that took place in the past several days, yet I have heard or seen nothing of it. Anybody knows what that's all about?
I reckon a bunch of consultants?
Normal industry standard is to prepone Q1 expenditure to Q4. However, looks like HPE is doing reversal. It is postponing all unavoidable expenditures to Q1 just to show better results in Q4? If above is true, Q1 results would be extremely impacted... read more
