As happens every year, large scale layoffs will happen in October. They do this so its all on the books for this fiscal year. If your boss ghosts you over the next week or two, you know you'll be getting the call by Columbus Day
It might sound strange but I think there are many people who do everything they think could put them on the layoff list. Package would be the best way out for many. The work here no longer gives any satisfaction, the pay is not adequate. Honestly... — read more
And it's not going to be good US employees, mark my words. Antonio and senior management have been planning this for a while and WFR will be a harsh reality for many. This a warning to get yourself ready so that it won't be such a shock. Get that... — read more
"Fiscal 2022 fourth quarter non-GAAP diluted net EPS excludes after-tax adjustments of $0.20 per diluted share, primarily related to,"transformation costs" (severance). That means WFR's in the 4th quarter.
The biggest scam of a company, perpetuated by the Old Boys club of people who have been at the company 20+ years and the only thing they care about is their own survival. If this company had an ounce of innovation in it, it could thrive, but instead... — read more

It is quite clear that they want cheaper employees. What I don't understand is how they still haven't realized that cheaper employees will not solve the problems in this company, of which there are already too many? I think that HPE is becoming... — read more
Antonio is going to do what he does best, WFR US employees and hire cheap off-shore labor to replace them.
I just wonder how this company can still attract anyone talented. I would not recommend anyone to come here. You?
I know... I know... But still, it's a shame what this company has become when compared to its glorious past. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/top-companies-2022-technology-information-linkedin-news/
I am interested in the experiences of internal candidates. Do internal candidates have a better chance of getting a coveted position? I’m afraid of getting rejected, because then I would very likely have to quit. I'll appreciate any advice.

I'm trying to find a new job as soon as possible. How far are we from layoffs?
For a long time I thought that the leadership would finally come up with some good plan for this company but I no longer have any hopes that this will happen. Unfortunately, I do not see that they have any plan other than cuts and more cuts. Looks... — read more
How will it end for hpe? They get bought out?
Last year due to covid & supply chain issues HPE moved from compensating sales upon order shipments to compensating upon bookings. It's probably the only reason that the mass exodus didn't happen last year. Problem is, this strategy is draining free... — read more
HPE once again drops the ball for their investors, just when I thought they were on the road to slight recovery. How does this company operate with nearly 10k more people than their HP Inc. counterpart, yet accomplish about 267% less revenue? If I... — read more
Did layoffs happen or not? I haven't heard anything at work but that wouldn't be the first time considering the overall lack of communication and transparency at this place. In any case, I would really appreciate it if somebody could confirm if... — read more
Here we go. Another round.lol
When R&D managers started to leave, that’s when I knew it was time for me to leave too. Luckily, I found a much better position down the street. For the first time in many years, I look forward to work again. Also, for the first time, I get to use my... — read more
It used to be really important to me to have a great performance review. A lot of stress, a lot of effort went into it.. I did my best to make sure my performance review was as good as possible. But lately I’m thinking more and more about whether... — read more
Anyone hear anything about our salaries and inflation? I feel like their options are A) just ignore it or B) give everyone raises to match inflation (or more likely a raise but not as much as inflation). But if they try to go the raises route they... — read more
I’m not happy here because the lack of support from managers is huge. How much support do you get from your manager? I think most employees expect support, but don't get it. This leads to disengagement in the workplace. Why is that so? Why is their... — read more
From a linkedin post: "Pune will host our state-of-the-art ITOC, and capabilities supporting HPE GreenLake Management Services, HPE Greenlake cloud platform and HPE A&PS Cloud & Apps Services." I would ask if there is a reason to worry, but thats... — read more
HPE is not in the Linkedin top 50 best places to work. What a surprise.
Of course, the competition will take all the talented engineers because they are not valued at all here. Neither the talents nor their ideas are recognized and so then what quality of product can you expect? There are no quality products here... — read more
A lot of the comments are rather old are there any new updates on HPE regarding layoffs projections.
Talked to a former HPE coworker and friend last week. He said that he and a couple others recently jumped off the crazy train called HPE. He told me that there is no future for many at HPE so things must be getting desperate there. The board should... — read more
I know of storage in ALF, any others as well?
Has anybody driven past the new HPE building in Spring, TX? It looks like the building is almost finished and there is an impressive piece of art out front that looks vaguely similar to a giant 3-D model of a Covid-19 virus.
The last layoffs I can recall were in October. Does anybody know how are affected people doing? How many were able to find a new job by now and how many are still looking? I'd just like to know how hard is it really to land a new position these days... — read more
What'd ya think? She was the person who was widely credited with destruction of the Symmetrix product line in the now defunct EMC.. Did she get kicked away from VMWare or she left on her own volition? I doubt it is the second..
The more people I talk to, the more I realize how few people see this as their long-term option. Nearly everybody is looking for a better opportunity, even people who are not that far from retirement. Only those who are just a couple of years away... — read more
Has there been any info on possible January layoffs?
Wanted to know what Meg Whitman is up to? Too bad. Well, Joe Biden nominated her as the Kenyan ambassador, like that will have a large impact. I guess she'll do anything to maintain a decent salary. If she's bad at corporate leadership, she must be... — read more
In past posts I have referred to someone I call the damage control person. It’s my theory that this person tries to shape public opinion on sites like this one as part of their job working for HPE. If this is the case, the ethical thing to do would... — read more
I wonder if and to what extent small cuts may already be happening here that we don't know about at all because they are not that big? I'm not saying anything, it would just be interesting to know what's going on under the radar.
