Topics regarding layoffs at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
I know about yesterday's layoffs at HPE, but I'm not sure if they are still taking place. Haven't heard from my wife the whole day, and now I am starting to get worried. Hopefully I am just being paranoid and it's just a busy day after a big round of... read more
I was one of thousands laid off yesterday. Get a new job now. Let's be done with this dumpster fire.
Rumour has it that HPE will use the analyst call this week to announce Meg's departure, which would explain her recent stock dump. Anyone else heard this?
Ignore the useless HPE management and HR. If you are spending most of your time helping your boss to survive and not learning new things for more than 6 months, you should find a job and leave. The longer you stay, the harder you will be able to find... read more
I learned a long time ago that at HP(E), if you have a problem, you're the problem, so don't have problems.
I’ve heard about people receiving notices today, I was not affected, my team and group are fine (I think). I’ve heard about immediate WFR’s taking place – folks are notified about December 2017 departure date – I’ve heard that there is another round... read more
Does anyone know if they are closing the Pleasanton, CA office?
Layoffs hit engineering, marketing and product management late last week. Going to be a bloody Monday. 2 weeks notice here we come
Anybody here had previous dealings with our HR? My direct superior has been making my job a living nightmare, the harassment never stops. This has been going on for at least a year, but it has worsened in the past few months. I am not sure if... read more
Take 2 minutes to watch this video on HP; it's pretty funny and some of us HPE folks need a laugh right now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ntPxdWAWq8
I need to have HP Enterprise Services fill out an IRS Form 3881, ACH Vendor/Miscellaneous Payment Enrollment, so that the Department of Treasury can deposit money in ES' account to cover part of my COBRA insurance premiums. Has anyone else done this?... read more

Well, the proposed 5,000 cuts by end of year seems to be end of fiscal year. Tuesday morning mandatory meeting, even if you are on vacation. Gallows humor abounds. What a change from the company I hired into in 1982. I wonder if I'm part of the... read more
Hey HPE, you want companies to transform using your HW/SW when you are adapting to your own needs with the speed of an 8-bit sloth. Talk about speed, agility, dev/ops, analytics, AI, cloud and you are still relying heavily on Excel. Ah...and your... read more
some of the management update calls today started to disclose information on the redundancy plans for the UK. More information as soon as details start leaking out.
I was WFR’ed in April of 2014, and took me 9 full months to get another IT job at a small logistics company earning around 60% of what I was earning at HP. I lost my house, my credit score went from A+ to trash, and to make things even worse, my wife... read more
Unfortunately, not just a rumor (as I was on that meeting here in Houston this morning). Several EG Supply Chain GBU roles will be moving to Puerto Rico before the end of the calendar year. The original plan was to execute before the FY end, but they... read more
OO is one if the best product that HPE got through acquisition, to date it's still the best orchestrator on the market. Too sad to see what's happening to OO team. I hope you guys will find a safer and better place soon.

2 weeks have passed since rumors about 5000 layoffs. Complete silence on the topic since then, barring that one posting about the 3PAR layoffs in Ireland. Did the financial website that reported this get bad intelligence? The rumor sure seems to have... read more
Glassdoor has done some sort of “deep clean” of many-many negative reviews of HP lately, to include reviews that are even several years old! Glassdoor sells HP job advertising, you know… So the below is an edited recycle from there, of a... read more
My Question is, if the company was losing money and they needed to cut expenses, why in the heck did the company give Meg 35.6 MILLION DOLLARS? This is terrible after putting people in the streets with no medical and no job and at the same time... read more
From: R.I.P HP, what Silicon Valley can learn from the rise and fall of its original tech startup http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/technology/2014/10/hewlett_packard_hp_split_the_rise_and_fall_of_silicon_valley_s_original.html
The future is now, and now is software defined, with seismic market shifts to a cloud based service consumption model on the cheapest bare-metal hardware supplied by a big brand low cost producer such as Huawei. Don't believe me? - who in the year... read more
The entire tech industry got fat and bloated. Executives grew by purchasing companies, not by enhancing services. Surprised? Hurd gutted R&D and now the company is lagging in many ways. Who knows what the future will bring. IBM is not what it was... read more
Was just told that a part-time (10-15 hours a week) position that I'd been contracted for has been eliminated because the manager has been told to "lower spend" for Q4. Just a couple of weeks ago the manager had been told to ramp up spending so that... read more
"(...) Hewlett Packard Enterprise is to shutter its 3PAR engineering office in Belfast. (...) The office had about 100 people at the start of the year with the numbers dropping over the past few months. This amounts to 20-25 per cent of the overall... read more
I read these threads as I am really worried about my future. Some are very very good because they are considered and objective, some are clearly a little "tainted" shall we say. So I decided to do a little mystery shop. Simple question to HPE online... read more
A serious question for those who keep saying to move on: where? I've been trying to move on for a while now, with no luck. All other tech companies are in the same shape as HPE, to a bigger or lesser degree. Layoffs are happening left and right, just... read more
My coworkers and I just received an email asking for an inventory of our phones. To top it off this whole timecard change (with the failed notification by HR that only went out selectively) is spooky.
http://www.sfgate.com/business/article/What-HPE-s-layoffs-mean-for-the-company-s-12221723.php However, even if the layoffs help the company reduce costs in the short term, Ponvert said he is skeptical the cuts will actually help the company compete... read more
I see people around me really upset. Have lost employee morale. Not at all a right place to work. Everyone i am seeing is now fearful and wants to quit the company by making alternative arrangement ASAP. All the talented workers are already been... read more
"Surprise" all hands scheduled for tomorrow sprung on the Belfast office today! Marty and Uresh en route to Bangalore, bye bye Belfast and the highly skilled workforce employed here very sad to see!
We have been through a lot. I've seen more use of partners and contractors for cases. We don't backfill positions of those who have quit on their own. Click never works properly. Dispatch is set up to fail. Customers are increasingly specific in... read more
I am very sorry to hear about the layoffs. Times have changed and the executives were not able to steer the company in the right direction. Now, the worker will pay for mistakes made by the executive line up. I worked for HP back when their were no... read more
I was WFR'd in 2015 under the premise that I retired. What bothered me most is that once I signed up for WFR, which was before the split I could not or would not be able to apply for a position with HPE. I spent 40 years of my life working for... read more
what is ultra-concerning about the posts here is no one, not a single person, is putting up any form of defence position in support of the company. I was talking to a long term customer who summed up the problem - they simply said they no longer... read more
