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 will probably also do layoffs to offset cost

HPE turned me into a “Wally” too. 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 vast knowledge of electronics to design circuit boards.
He-l, I had no raise @ HP-HPE for 10 years at one point. I just did x% less work every year until eventually I didn't do anything. I got a lot of tips from Dilbert's Wally (Not Joking) like the "Wally reflector", Google it. They finally caught up to me but it was a good ride while it lasted.
This is a joke post right?
The only incentive HPE (or any other employers) has for giving cost of living increases is employee retention. If they can get away without giving them, they won't.
Inflation and no hope of a decent raise or bonus are just a couple reasons that the rats are jumping off this sinking ship.
What I've heard:
- Salary -- You have one. Be happy for that. Not everyone has one.
- Inflation -- Exists. Deal with it. The company isn't responsible for keeping you up.
- Companys -- Have layoffs. It happens.
- Tech -- Is usually affected... or so I heard.
