3 people in my department are taking the early retirement package. They will leave in February 2020. The retirement age was lowered to 50 for this round of offers. It use to be 55. It may start looking like a ghost town around here next year.

What are the chances that these layoffs are tied to the increase of H1B denials?
Commenter on another thread said Boise will be closed by 2022. Is that insider info, or just speculation?
The guy leading the failing printer business is replacing DW. Hmm, maybe DW was asked to find a health issue he needed to address? Maybe EL wasn’t being allowed to take these new “ bold and decisive” steps? People are usually replaced in these... — read more

Here we go again. It never stops. They will now increase executive bonuses, starting with Lores and Fieler. I'd bet it'll be 9,000. We'll see what happens. HP to slash 7,000 to 9,000 jobs over three years as part of major restructuring ... — read more
