I just wonder how this company can still attract anyone talented. I would not recommend anyone to come here. You?

Yeah, I was contacted by an HP recruiter about two different jobs. They asked me to send times and dates when I would be available to interview. Every time that I have sent that information to a recruiter, the recruiter ghosted me. This time was no exception. It doesn’t really matter since I have a job that I really enjoy and I doubt the skinflints running HPE would pay a decent wage.
Was contacted by a headhunter about a job at HPE, after researching, found it would be a large pay cut, and mandatory jab. No thanks.
"accelerating your digital transformation" 2012 is calling .. they want their slogan back.
If you actually have talents, you'd be pi---d off on daily basis. people , especially the managers and "architects" just play games, they don't give sh-t about talents.
Money always works. Atta boys and good doggie doesn't.
HPE is already having a massive turnover. When I left the company after getting laid off during covid, about a year later, I see my colleagues left and right leaving the company from LinkedIn.
There are some remnants that I talk with occassionally. I even got to tour their new HQ in Houston just recently. Very nice campus. Then I got to see my old org, or at least the last remaining five people as everything got moved to India and Singapore. I suddenly got hit with massive nostalgia as I haven't seen them in over two years. I even got to see the person they hired to replacement me. It was a little weird but he was a cool guy.
My exodus from HPE was very sudden. I didn't have a proper goodbye. I had to get an empty box and walk in the ghost town of Compaq one last time. I'll be honest, I cried after leaving but I gave the company the bird when I was driving away. But I still have a place in my heart for my friends at HPE.
Anyways, a week later after I toured the new campus, I had lunch again with my HPE friends. They had told me that raises had been very small and bonuses... well... there haven't been any since pre-covid.
There are hiring like crazy at HPE. It is not expansion, it is prevention of retraction. I was told by one of my HPE friends that they hired someone but literally by the end of the week, he left the company LOL! Wow...
Anyone who joins the company now, only want the "Hewlett Packard" name in their resume.
I say go. If you have no talent just act super upbeat/enthusiastic and be an awesome team player that takes on anything but never follow-ups or does a lame job of it. Management won't notice, they're too busy preserving their own ham and will promote you as a great employee to prove what a great leader they are. I've seen several cheerleaders rise fast through the services org.
I wouldn't wish the HPE meat grinder on even my worst enemy.
