Apologies to my Hitachi Vantara colleagues who have been impacted by the layoffs this week. This is an awful week but we've seen this coming since Brian Householder and Scott Kelly's failed Project Mirai "digital transformation" program led by... — read more
Total BS. I was driving revenue and was cut when others didn’t contribute anything.
Why do they have to make it last for days or even weeks sometimes? I see no good reason for it other than to torture us and make us stress even more. But this will backfire on them. The morale is already low and it's getting even lower every day -... — read more

Any HItachi Vantara News or rumors ?
Secret hiring freeze order came down today. The word “realignment” was heard. So called leadership is acting strange and has been for a few months. Leaders seem withdrawn and defensive with a lot of hiding in their offices or being entirely absent... — read more
Still not seeing anything tangible in the way of roadmap and strategy. Concerned that with the new fiscal year that a new round of layoffs are coming and internal buzz/concern is picking up.
