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

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
