We (in the US) received the e-mail inviting us to go into Workday and update our disability status - and while we are there we can also consider updating our race, ethnicity, gender and military status. Sounds like the HR machine is gearing up for... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
I know we haven't seen any major layoffs for a few months now, but I think it's far too early to become optimistic. We're nowhere close to originally announced savings, and I'm afraid that it's just a matter of time before anther major layoffs... read more
I've been given a rather generous offer to return which has left me pondering whether to accept it. Under Meg Whitman's leadership, HP/HPE was a company that was repeatedly reorganizing, spinning off, and laying off. I could not see a future with... read more
An HPE job can stimulate LOTS of diverse thoughts about LOTS of things, to include ethology (the study of human and animal behavioral mechanisms as biological adaptations) and anthropology and history (the next and higher levels of evolution in... read more
I know the usual is two weeks, but I'd rather not tell my manager until I really have to. I want to make his life just a little bit more harder after the hell he put me through in the past several months. Are there any repercussions I could face if I... read more
Houston's attempt to move MFG to Austin Flextronixs has been (is being) a disaster, a debacle , complete with slipped schedules and massive costs over-runs. So now, those last lingering MFG workers in Houston (mostly contractors?), whose heads WERE... read more
"Selecting the salesperson (Phil Davis) instead of the engineer (Ana Pinczuk), indicates that HPE thinks that their problem is merely one of sales and marketing." Kind of like when Carly replaced Lew Platt as CEO. Didn't work then, won't work now... read more
I was laid off before the merge to Micro Focus and I had many co-workers who undermined me and tried to micro manage me with harrasment daily. I was never recognized for my work not once and I gave my all and did what the manager wanted. I believe it... read more
If you (as an individual productivity unit) really-really-really would like to take a ½-year (or more) break from work, and can afford to make it on unemployment payments alone, come to HPE; your wish will almost definitely eventually be granted!... read more
Management has THREE passes scheduled, for refining their layoffs planning cycles! The more cycles of planning, the more layoffs! (If they were planning to lay off a mere 10 people, can you imagine more than 1 round of planning?). I have it from good... read more
Is there a Micro Focus section on this site? Can't seem to find it. Thanks.
In the military, in POW (Prisoner Of War) training, the simulated prison guards had us simulated prisoners dig a hole, fill it, and then repeat the same, over and over again. The lesson? There is no faster way to demoralize someone, than to... read more
On the bullying, just some suggestions... Find out in your state, is it legal for you to tape-record (or otherwise auto-record) conversations in which you are a part of. In some states (Illinois for example) you have to ask the other person's... read more
Lately it feels like HPE has given up on layoff in exchange of forcing people to leave on their own. Bullying at workplace is out of control, and there are zero repercussions for main offenders. I've seen two people quit in the past month due to... read more
If you liked the move “Office Space”, and would like to work in a job environment like that, I suggest HPE’s job openings. The recent specialty of the house is what I would call “impractical humor”, because it makes it impractical to actually get... read more
Just, thinkin again ... It's Monday and I have to do somethin. No WFR's this morning due to holiday on Wednesday. USA only. But, Monday the 9th or the 16th, could be another round. It fits the two week rule. Just splanin... It could be another Epic... read more
Any word on your % ?
If you are an old-timer on this site, you'll remember well Gomez's obsession on having his team lurking on and discrediting any negative comments posted here against Meg's execution and overall strategy. Have you noticed how nowadays there are barely... read more
I just found out that they are outsourcing their entire Recruiting Team to Korn Ferry mid next year. All of recruiting I believe, globally. We have a meeting with Alan May, CPOm tomorrow.
Younger Sibling HPQ is laying of 5000 in coming months. Will the disease spread to the older Sibling HPE as well? Time will tell.
Don't forget to respond to the VOW - looks like they "want to hear from us" (But, do they want to know how we really feel!?!)
You all are safe. The layoffs are over. There is now exactly the right number of people to keep the lights on.
Thank you for everything that you did for my family. Looking out the "windows" I see the Glendenning Barn and I wondered over the Building 57 and rank in to a "Duke" Best Wishes.
Anybody worried about the fact that HPE executives are boasting the fact that reducing headcount is working out much better than they expected? If this becomes a go to tactic to improve business (even if I firmly believe that any gains are only... read more
Let go in January of 2017. ADP site shows 2015, 2016, but no 2017. Paper copy received in the mail was accidentally destroyed and now I need it. Of course I’m in a time crunch, so the email route that takes days to weeks for a response is not... read more
Any readings on potential workforce re-alignment after Q2 results released yesterday? Anyone? The stock appears to have taken a big hit today. This after good results posted yesterday.
You can see all the partying in social media of Aspire participants in Nashville. Those people are doing the right thing by enjoying every freakin dime of HPE by partying and drinking all the Kool Aid. Just say YES to everything the executives are... read more
Seems to be the only TECH company laying off...Thanks MEG....I was rehired!!! then get WFR'ed...Hope HPE goes down...Grew up at HP with Bill and Dave...God bless Bill and Dave...
Protest the crappy Unisys deal
Root Cause? Yer Mama Didn’t Raise You Right! Whoa, people! Two whole days, and no fresh new posts at all?!? Whazzzup with that??! … Lemme stir it up a bit. There’s been a lot of posts here about bad office politics at HPE, mostly-probably caused by... read more
Oh yeah, for those that are being laid off and let go, please note that we were not allowed to continue our life insurance policy either, not even at a higher premium, so, don't count on it. Is this true? What about health coverage? Is there any way... read more

Just remember, there are career consulting agencies looking for, well, I don't have to really tell you, do I? Wanted 12K for 12 months of consulting to help me find a new job. Just so you know what the going price was. Pinged from Glass Door... read more
Oh, HEY, BTW ( b y t h e w a y) for your unmotivated employees (according to these posts) I just wanted to let y'all KNOW that I actually DO NOT get paid for taking consumer account complaints on LinkedIn and reporting them to EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT... read more
The US is already executing on transferring the field support force to Unisys. Now EMEA is following suit. In EMEA the GSD field customer engineers are transferring to Hemmersbach, in those countries that do not have a CDS entity (wholly owned HPE... read more
There was a lot of noise on this website about the emperor doling out mid year bonuses. The emperor and the cronies made a big deal about it at the coronation as well. All a bunch of lies. Looks like the cronies like may and june have been feeding... read more
I personally think that the reason WHY HPE top mismanagement can NOT get acquisitions to be successes, is flat-out arrogance! They immediately think that they know more than the experts at the company that they just acquired, and that they can lay... read more

Carly introduced unlimited sick time, I wonder if the Emperor has included FTO along with it. DXC recently implemented unlimited FTO. I heard only at a max of 2 week increments and depends on "business needs". I expect the Emperor will bring... read more
It's been a long time since I read something positive about HPE. Not that I think this changes our situation in any way, but it was a nice distraction for a moment. HPE shines in IDC Converged Systems tracker, Cisco does not... read more
