Thread regarding Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) layoffs

Here they go again! Layoffs coming soon

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 the self serving top brass are milking the cash cow all the way to their own personal bank accounts.

Get ready, this round of layoffs is going to be deep - do yourself a favor and jump ship now and join a company where your hard work can actually make a difference.

They are for a fact conducting another round of layoffs, a 10% workforce reduction. The thing is, they don’t even seem concerned about the utter lack or intentions to create new business. They only recycle/refresh the old accounts. No wonder there’s a layoff every year.

I telecommuted and worked largely with telecommuters for many years and rarely had any issues with availability and background noise. It just wasn't an issue. Maybe a chatty baby because I asked someone to meet at 8pm or 4am. But these are real people.

I also had the benefit of them being available off hours to meet with people in foreign countries. Once we were told to go back to the office, that ended. Sorry, I meet during work hours only. Call my manager if you don't like it.

October is coming, a month that has historically been used for continuous layoffs. You’ve been warned!

I got let go from HPE in mid 2020, so my probation from coming back just expired recently. Do I want to come back? No, not at all. I know what I'm not missing: no bonuses, no stipends, marginal raises, and people who refuse to listen to my ideas.

I feel bad for people who actually work hard at this company. It's really noble but extremely futile. The company is on its last legs. I said the same thing a couple years ago, but these falls take time. It's only accelerated more and more.

One large sale each quarter is not sufficient for this company. Think about it: the Frontier sale for the exascale thing happened this quarter. What would have happened if Dell stole that sale? Where would HPE be today? If you have to layoff, it means something still very wrong internally. There's no such thing as a growing company that lays off.

HPE's thread that I thought would snap a couple of years ago is only getting weaker by the day. One big sale loss and HPE is done for. That should be very scary for the company and her people.

Compute is happening more locally nowadays. People don't want their data vulnerable out in the public domain.

I am former HPE executive who left a few years ago due to the toxic culture and the many 'lifers' who are leaders there just because of their connections making the worst decisions ever.
I came here to find out what is going on because over the last 2 weeks I have had many people hitting me up on LinkedIn to help them get a job. I figured there must be some serious layoffs going on or coming up...
Will help who I can and who is salvageable - I can tell you this, it is MUCH better almost anywhere else...

A lot of the remaining older employees are just skating until they get a package. Also trying to get anything done with teleworkers is impossible. They are nowhere to be found because they are out running errands or dealing with the kids. I also love struggling to communicate over the phone with dogs barking or the newborn needing some attention.

There are just too many people pretending to work so a house cleaning is in order. The problem is, for the most part, the managers have no clue who is doing anything so will probably keep the wrong people. You know, the ones who kiss buuuuttttt.

We were told that upper management felt bad when I was WFR'd because they were responsible for making the decisions that led nowhere. Wait... They scr3w things up, I get cut and they get to stay? That's the real problem so we'll see how it plays out for this quarter.

Greenlake has always been a joke, from the leasing model to the second rate consultants who get forced down the customer's throat. Companies who buy into that mess aren't very smart.

Heard this round is going to be really serious - focused on higher cost US labor.

But of course, the people who do nothing but travel around the world patting each other on the back don't need to worry...
