hmm, Wellness for employees "Want to know the secrets of living longer, better? " right after or in between "quiet" lay off.. WTF!!
Topics regarding layoffs at Hitachi Vantara
We got notice today of a All Hands on Deck meeting this Monday, March 1st. Maybe this will be the day we will all will be free from this corrupt company. I would love to be the one picked to get the package but I think these criminals have better... — read more
If HV is, in fact, done, as others have said, it will be interesting to see what the exit plan is. I doubt Hitachi Ltd. would just fold up the tent. Even though most of us are frustrated, there is still value in the company that Hitachi Ltd. would... — read more
So its been a while since GFK and his cronies have come onboard. Usually it takes 60-90 days for a new CEO to figure out what they want to do going forward - in most cases, they actually come in on Day 1 with a draft plan in their heads if not on... — read more
I’m in my mid 20s and in a few months it will be my 3rd year with HV. How long should an employee remain to gain experience/knowledge before moving on to another company? I’ve been told time and again that HV should be used as a stepping stone and... — read more
Always better to look for a job when you have a job. People who wait for a severance need to realize that. Much negotiation leverage (salary, and the general sense employed folks are just more ‘attractive’) is lost. Most importantly, you lose the... — read more
So many people keep complaining about how horrible HV is and yet they're still here. Which basically means that you choose to be miserable. The way I see it, if you are so unhappy here you should be bending over backwards to get out of this place... — read more
Honestly, I would love to get laid off in this company of empty promises as soon as possible. I'm still sticking around because I would like to get my severance pay. However I’m looking for other options and there are a few appealing ones, but it’s... — read more
I'd expect to see them continue indefinitely, just not as a one big wave. We've seen this before - you know when you hear about a few people being cut here and there every few days? IMO, that's how this will proceed until they're happy with the... — read more
What cesspool of ego, and old-school management style. If HV fired every director and above, with the exception of a few, a very select few, C-levels, Directors and VPS, and kept the people who actually do the work, they would be 100% more efficient... — read more
Someone said that the signs of the ship sinking were clearly seen even before 2015. I haven’t been in the company for that long, so I only see them now and I can only compare the situation as it is now and as it was two years ago. There is a drastic... — read more
I barely woke up and I'm already here to see if there'll be more layoffs next week. It's a f—ing Saturday and my first thought is to check a layoffs forum to see if there's been any news on more cuts. How messed up is that? That's what this company... — read more
Job security was once a thing at Hitachi but those days are long gone. Now we are at a point where any day can mean potential layoffs. Sad but true. No wonder people are hating their jobs and leaving in droves. Who would want to stay at a place where... — read more
I know there were layoffs on Monday but some people claim there was more in the past two days and there will be more before the end of the week. Can anybody confirm this and provide some more info on which departments were hit and how many people... — read more
Agreed on the fact that the company is positioning for it’s self for sale. The last thing a buying company wants is blood on their hands. I would almost assume a deal has been made and that they are letting people go to meet contract requirements... — read more
At first I was worried about getting laid off, but now I don’t care what could happen at the end of the month. The HV is becoming a big farce, so the dismissals are less and less tragic. The colleagues I really loved working with are no longer in... — read more
There is more and more talk about January layoffs, but hardly any of my colleagues know anything about it. I saw that someone already asked about this in one of the posts but there was no answer. Hope you don't mind me starting a new thread, but I am... — read more
Could HV be next?? https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Electronics/Hitachi-to-sell-overseas-appliance-arm-to-Turkish-major-for-300m
Just got off town hall meeting with Susan. She said we all have to work harder. A marble is sharper than her. Can’t wait for the next lay-off. Please pick me.
Usually some great insider knowledge on these threads, so I'd appreciate the insight.
I am at a complete loss for words
Layoffs in EU started sometime in 2018. All areas have seen massive reduction in head count. Started with finance, then came services, then came sales. Recently I see marketing and pre-sales colleagues having "open to work" profiles on LinkedIn... — read more
This is the nature of HV, every year and every quarter. If any of you thought that this quarter's layoff was bad then I have some bad news for you.
Trying to figure out if there is diamond in the rough.
I honestly don’t know if it’s just me but my manager always seems angry and hostile. He shows absolutely no respect to his peers or those who report to him. I can deal with his arrogance, but everything else including his attitude makes me grit my... — read more
Hitachi Vantara fires up second round of layoffs in a year. Third round is in the wings. c'est la vie https://blocksandfiles.com/2020/11/16/hitachi-vantara-layoffs-2/
I feel broken. I know this won’t go anywhere- but after all the layoffs- all the people who messed up my team are the ones who are left :(
Someone said that on here earlier. Is that true or just someone being bored with their time
The final chapter in Hitachi Data Systems is now finished. Brad Surak, Brian Householder and Scott Kelly were the architects of the implosion of a once great company. All are gone now as are the many people they directly laid to waste in their... — read more
Rumors are floating around today.
Does anyone know of ANY career opportunities for existing employees at Hitachi Vantara?
I keep hearing about people who are still being hit - does anybody know what's going on with that?
OK. We get it. Your bleeding red ink and the only way to survive is not with new products but with layoffs. This works if you have a direction but you don’t. So expect more layoffs in the future to keep the bottom line afloat which will not last... — read more
Anyone here feeling survivor's guilt from the blood bath we've all faced this week?
Does anyone have an idea on the number of people? Never seen anything like this in 20 years of tech. Really don't know how they will keep the wheels on the bus. I'm heartbroken for everyone experience the layoff and those left behind. Our team got... — read more
I think that we can all agree we need layoffs at Hitachi Vantara, that's a fact. But the problem is that the real fat never gets cut. The many, many useless layers of management remain while employees who do all the actual work are escorted out. So... — read more
There is nothing good about this company. Leadership continues to justify corporate maneuvers to achieve IoT and Cloud revenue. The reality is that they have achieved nothing. They will continue this vision of grander things on the horizon but we... — read more
