Thread regarding Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) layoffs

Greed is destroying this company

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 less and less competitive and you should no longer have any high hopes for the future here.

This company 100% has NO VISION or innovation. They are too cheap to invest in innovation that is t guaranteed to bring income. I am working on a project being funded solely by my groups P&L and hardware from the trash because the company won't invest, they want us to magically create a new product/offering from scratch, implement it, sell it to a couple customers to show it can make money then they will invest money into expanding it... Backwards mentality.

And GL is a complete scam of a service/offering that was put together in a hurry but won't be able to actually do what they say it will. Look at their VMaaS offering, they just took Morpheus multi-cloud platform and attached it to VMware and changed the logo on the Morpheus UI. All they did was take someone else's toolset, rebrand it without buying it but paying Morpheus a lot of money, and just cloned VM templates... That is not innovative at all.

Investors need to wake the F up. Another round of layoffs that affect top performing sales engineers that annually exceed quota, and are currently in the middle of large strategic deals. Investors, when the 1st quarter numbers miss, ask that mo--n Antonio, why the shell oil deal fell through? Ask first line sales managers if they are staffed to win key deals with top engineers? HPE needs to clean the eurotrash out of the board. Starting with no vision Antonio. Greenlake is a failure, and a scam. Attend the next investor meeting and demand answers.

They want new hires from 3rd world countries who they pay virtually nothing. I was let go and replace by someone from Costa Rica who was paid $16K a year. But from what I heard, its hard to keep new grads at these rock bottom wages. The turnover in Costa Rica has been extensive from what I have heard from coworkers still at HPE. After 6 months, everyone leaves and goes elsewhere for more money

It's called hiring by demographic. My HPE group hired a non-technical person for a technical job and my manager said they could be trained to be technical? The person coasted for several years until they eventually got rid of them for total incompetence.

HR is horrible at HPE. We went through an exercise of interviewing early career people and had to do it all over again because HR insisted that we hire new college grads. Why on earth would we want to hire people with a work history? So d-mb.

Love the Freudian slip there (new grad who can not solve problems for you)

HPE will never change. HPE will always choose cheaper over better, faster, and innovation. Look at the history HPE off shoring and near shoring.

Well frankly, I think it's incompetence more than greed. Like, what the h…ôll is HPE's C-suite and Board of Directors even doing anymore? Are they okay with recurring failure? Is there an exit strategy that I'm not aware of?

I think Cray is going to be the only thing that will survive.

Fun fact, my two year probation from HPE has expired after my layoff. Do I want to come back? HA... NO...

Love this post. You have worked there forever, get paid a lot, admit it is nothing but problems... and the answer is to keep paying you top dollar? LOL. Gut your overpaid dead weight that clearly makes no difference, return value to shareholders via stock price and dividends with the savings, and hire some new grad who can not solve problems for a third of the price they pay you.
