So far all the CW furloughs (in the print division) are to take place before the end of July 2019. Has any CW been asked to take off more time beyond the last day in July? The end of Q3 is at the end of July. Typically any word of WFR for regular... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at HP (Hewlett-Packard)

What's going on? There was talk this week would be it in term of layoffs - has anything happen yet?
I review these posts time to time, interesting how limited, or restrictive the comments are and have been. Certainly NOT the responsible company the founders had created! Thank you current and ex-CEO’s - CF=big bust, MH=oops, LA,=duh, MW=age is our... — read more
All Contingent Workers (CW) on projects on the Print side of business are being furloughed for the month of July. Management thinks it is fine to cut out a month of a person's pay with no reason given, and then expects that same person to want to... — read more

I am a mid-level employee. I joined EDS in July 2001, and was an EDS employee when HP acquired EDS in summer 2008. So, I am now with HP Enterprise Services. As explained to us in summer 2008, there were cost efficiencies (headcount reductions) when... — read more

The problem is that management does not care. Meg does not care. It's all about the cost savings for the share holders. HP is out of date, out of touch and with the brain drain caused by their actions they will always be behind the eight ball within... — read more

Some in HP have seen this a few times before, but for those of us who haven't, it's a challenge. There are a lot of "management" types that have never had another job after college and they're in their late 40s or early 50s. They're old blood, have... — read more
