Topics regarding layoffs at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)

I was kicked to the curb after 30 years

I am also a long time CE 30+ years and will be kicked to the curb with the others it looks like. I was honored to work with a team that went above and beyond daily to help a customer and keep HPE's name up front with the customer. Beware those left... read more

Ten for ten

What happens when employees stop caring about their work. If this isn't the best indicator that nobody at HPE gives a damn anymore, I don't know what is. We are ten for ten... read more

At least the CE's will receive their 401k match

I talked to my manager one on one yesterday about the Unisys spin. The good news is that they will be able to keep everyone who wants a job. Unisys will honor HPE's commitment to employment for all. And she said that they are working on paying out... read more

Huge layoff coming to Bay Area offices

Heard on Friday there will be a Bay Area focused layoff . It’s gotten too expensive to run the Bay Area buildings so layoffs will occur and the buildings will be sold. This information comes from solid sources

Technology is the true culprit

Let me ask all of you. You were always afraid of the dark side , are you still. What does a customer need when a system is installed? Help with their migration efforts/vmotion as an example, maybe assistance provisioning, maybe help with performance... read more

Some people need to get a life

I left HPE last year after 21 years. HP/HPE gave me the opportunity to raise my family near where I grew up, while allowing me to spend invaluable time with my children as they became adults. Was it all good? No, it seems like the past 18 years have... read more

HPE let go of their field service techs

While life is grand at the San Jose headquarters with new gyms and lavish cooking facilities, the field, the backbone, gets laid off. Monday March 5 we were all notified that we would be outsourced to Unisys.

Are you really that unemployable?

Reading this board makes me think that HPE desperately needs to clean out its ranks. If there is so many otherwise unemployable people working here (and only people who are completely unemployable can fear layoffs in this economy,) then it really is... read more

FIghting a losing battle

The IT market can no longer afford to pay HPE prices for hardware and support. Not trying to defend HPE, but they're fighting a losing battle. Cheap hardware can do the same with much less cost for maintenance and support. Found this post on another... read more

What about CMS ?

various rumors are spreading around, layoffs , split etc .. Do you have some reliable information ?

How are people being notified of Layoffs?

How do they let you know you are laid off? Do they do a group announcement? Call to an office? Who's there? Your manager and HR? Also, when do they tell you severance details and do they walk you out immediately? Do you have enough time to say bye to... read more

This is no more or less sad than Xerox, Kodak, and Yahoo.

The real question, of course, is whether Unisys is better or worse than HPE. It is clear that HPE no longer wants to be a IT solution company, but only a box product company. Shedding software and services is a pretty clear signal. This is just the... read more

Anyone know the status of the response centers?

As a current CE with many years, I need to occasionally leverage the Response Center for help on 3Par, XP, Superdome, Superdome2's and various proliant and blades. I've heard L1 and L2 have merged. How will I (if invited to join Unisys) fix the tough... read more

Black Monday begins

US wide meeting today outlining the end of customer engineers. Seems the powers that be will be moving service work, all phases of it, to a 3rd party. This is GSD wide. Sad, very sad...


If I am laid off from HPE, can I go and work for HPI? I know I cannot go back to HPE but there is an opportunity with HPI that I'd like to pursue. Any thoughts on this?

GSD and The Contractor Model

Rumor has it that there will be some sort of "push" to turn most or all of GSD into contractors. After The Meggot got rid of ALL (or almost all) of USA-wide contractors about 1/2 year ago, there is now (post-Emperor-Nero) a push to get contractors... read more

GSD to be Outsourced?

Is is possible that GSD is being outsourced to DXC. But its happening Monday whatever it is. Theres a gsd wide meeting point next transformation. Then a meeting with our area manager right after that

March 5 GSD big meeting?

Monday March 5 0830 GSD meeting with some important announcement for all GSD employees... Any ideas or rumors as to whats going to happen?

HPE Soars and Employees Get Shafted

HPE numbers exceeded Wall Street expectations, but how much of that was due to the execs eliminating the 2017 annual bonus? It did not hurt the execs since much of their compensation is stock options and RSUs, but it did hit the rest of us whose... read more

Remember when ....

the conventional wisdom was that HPE was the way to go at the split and that HP inc couldn't possibly be headed for anything but the trash heap???? Today, Not a single post on the first page for HPE that is more than one month old. Not a single post... read more

What's most vulnerable?

We all know more layoffs are coming after the quarterly results are announced (and they are not going to be pretty for sure,) but I was wondering what's most likely to be hit the hardest? Somebody already announced HPE Software, but do we know if... read more

A new day today

With old CEO gone and a new one in, it is a new day. And hopefully a new beginning and a promising future for this company built by legendary Bill and Dave. I hope the cronies of the old CEO also leave, cuz if they don't leave, this company will... read more

HPE Created Thousands of Intense Enemies

I recently had the chance to be involved in a bid where HPE was one of the participants. Hmmm. Destroy my life and that of my family after decades of superb service and want me to buy from you? Really?

Voluntary WFR

Has anyone had success with requesting a WFR? I found another job already so I figure it couldn't hurt to ask. Anyone successful with this?
