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.
Topics regarding layoffs at HP (Hewlett-Packard)
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.
They are hiring contractors and moving the job to low cost centers. T hou i am the only one who currently knows the project code, they want to lay me off in a month. They just don't know what they are doing. At one point we had 3 managers to look... read more
Hello All - Does HPE still offer an Early Retirement option and if yes, what are the terms. Thank you!
The HP One Run needs help they have no idea how to run it. They increased the amount of mangers for my team from 2 to 4. And realigned a bunch of teams to make a big mess. So now instead of reporting to the BUR (Backup and Recovery) Manager like I... read more
I can't understand what they're f---ing saying when I call myIT for help. One time, they returned my call at 2 AM Pacific Time. Why can't we have L1 tech support here? They don't even know what they're doing.
3,000 workers will leave the company by the end of 2016.
In addition to layoffs They found an underhanded way of transferring people from enterprise services to Ciber at much lower pay and then hiring them back as contractors.
HEP has it's own page for layoffs here: &hp-enterprise
Didn't ask for a WFR, didn't ask for anything. Just grabbed a different job, and bailed from the sinking ship after 24 years. It feels good not having a sword hanging over my head. HP works hard to make you feel that you are being compensated well... read more
On the HPE side I support three accounts. One is US-Support only so all of the team is spread around the United States. The other two accounts rely primarily on offshore support. Both are in Inida. First off, my customers are in the United States, so... read more
Now this is stupid, HPE wants us to go into the office even though NOT A SINGLE MEMBER OF THE TEAM IS IN THE OFFICE. We are all geographically distributed, different time-zones, etc. I have to put up with a 90 minute one way commute to be in the... read more
I'm there now in HP and they are looking to chop heads again. They are not looking at skill level or knowledge, strictly the bottom line. You work so many hours to make nonsensical decisions a reality and they change again when they realize that is... read more
I left HP after the split, was not laid off, left on my own. All that work to split HP was super exhausting and many things did not make sense or worked well.. Thousands of contractors were hired to assist, most people (especially us here in IT)... read more
You can see it here: &hp-enterprise
Both HP and EDS will never learn from its past history! For one, it fixes its failed processes with new processes that are also failures. It moves it's management around instead of firing it's failed managers. Hardly anyone in a leadership role stays... read more
Layoffs are not the only problem – discouraging telecommuting is a huge issue right now. For example, having a requirement that folks are within 100 miles from the office and to come to office every day – that’s ‘discouraging’. I personally felt this... read more
