... 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! DXC Technology will be hiring... read more
Is it true that we might have cuts (layoffs) in Palo Alto.
HP is biding over 1,000 patents in printing and computing areas. http://oceantomobidask.com/
Yesterday they announce they are going to cut lot jobs in hpe malaysia by end of this month, most relating to DXC....
Posted this in HPE, but it should be seen here as well. A class-action suit has been submitted against both HP inc. and HPE. The suit both alleges racism and ageism. Gotta say, with latest happenings, not surprised in the least... read more

Ireland's HP Inc (HPI) site is closing. They are laying off 500 at least. Does anyone knows if other sites may close? How do you recognize that a site is about to close?
I can tell you that rumors are flying around about job cuts in Palo Alto.
I was hoping things will improve here at HP but we seem to be sinking deeper and deeper ever since the split (even before the split)... What are your thoughts on the job cutting plans? HP plans to lay off 3,000 to 4,000 employees over the next three... read more
US computer company HP Inc has said it expects to cut 3,000 to 4,000 jobs over the next three years. The hardware business of the former Hewlett-Packard announced the plans as part of a larger restructuring effort. It is hoped the cuts will generate... read more
It is all about having a senior person as a mentor. I have seen very competent people, go nowhere, while absolute incompetents seemingly get promoted and raises. The company is built on a business plan that stresses month to month financials. They... read more
That is, by the end of this year. (This is Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre -- not São Paulo.) I won't be surprise if they close the entire R&D in Brazil. It s---s anyway. Thinking they can be in this layoff list, employees are unable to focus on... read more
I got laid off recently from Cisco and pretty close to land a job with HPE professional services. I would appreciate any gotchas about HPE professional services.
Way to go, Dion! You are a good disciple of Whitman... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/hardware/hp-accused-of-sabotaging-non-hp-ink-cartridges/
Competitors (specially start ups) will kick our butt on gaming & "blended" reality. I can easily see HP making acquisitions there very soon - bidding against heavyweights. In terms of 3D printing, I think we'll kick @ss in a big way (at least in the... read more
http://fortune.com/2016/09/12/hp-printer-copier/ - Good luck with that. Xerox is extremely well positioned there...
Eliminating Samsung as a competitor in the printing business for $1B was a steal. I wouldn't be surprised if in 1-2 years Canon, Epson & Xerox join their printing businesses into a new stand-alone Company. In terms of HP, it's not difficult to... read more
I see that some employees are filing a class action lawsuit against HP. I was laid off after 31 years with HP/EDS. I suspect it was age related. I just found this website and submitted my information. http://hpagediscriminationinvestigation.com/
Most of those remaining layoffs will be done in the US... The Q3 Company performance results weren't as bad as I expected. The issue continues to be lack of innovation to sustain/grow REAL revenues past 2017...
Sounds paradoxical, but after 25 years I couldn't get out of HP fast enough, the place is an absolute textbook example of how to destroy a great business, over complicate everything, make it extraordinarily difficult to spend money with them, and... read more
I saw this article today in LinkedIn. The guy doesn't make direct reference to either HPQ or HPE, but it's more than obvious... He definitively hit the nail on the head. He doesn't seem to be a professional writer, so I doubt this gets spread to a... read more
There are layoffs going around every month in HPE at Houston. 20-30 employees every month. Some times around 50 employees layoff.
HP Networking (Procurve Edge switches, H3C data center switches, IMC management sw) got "reverse" acquired by Aruba who promptly screwed the HP Network Field sales reps by doubling quotas and cutting territories in half all the while having no idea... read more
I left HPI (HP Inc) a few months ago. Best decision I've ever made. I resigned because it was no longer worth it. I have a new job now and a lot more to be thankful for. Almost double the salary and 1/3 of the work. It's a win win situation. My... read more
For the first time since 1982, I am no longer an HP customer. My last remaining HP product, a multifunction printer, died, and I replaced it with a non-HP brand. I cannot support a company that treats its employees so badly. I feel a bit conflicted... read more
How do you guys feel about it?
Just heard from a recruiter that HP is indeed leaning towards hiring contractors and continue to layoff permanent workers.
What are the details here? What was enhanced?
Blackstone will buy Mphasis from HP, you know what happens when Blackstone rolls in? Yes, you guessed right, layoffs.
I am working in India and my colleague in US ( He is an American) got laid off on 14th Mar 2016. He was given only 2 weeks notice period. I feel very sorry for him.
