I absolutely understand if this post gets downvotes, but the truth is that the company has many people who have been doing almost nothing for a long time and it's a good thing for the company to be getting rid of dead wood. I think the ratio of those who do nothing to those who actually do all the work is almost 5:1.

I just got a new job! Free at last! Free at last!
Maybe it's finally time we can get rid of the useless jobs that do nothing to make the company money.
All that diversity b*, climate change b*, not making money positions.
Economy was good and now it's time to cut all the BS fat. Make money or get the f*** out.
"Fat chops" - That's a good one! And it very accurately defines those HP employees who accomplish no real work but take credit for everything. They constantly brown-nose up to HP management in order to remain off the WFR lists year after year. They're nothing more that lyin' toads.
HP business model is have somebody else make it and somebody else sell it and they will cash checks. This is not going to work.
Czarly's gift just keeps on giving.
When I was at HP years ago, I was stunned at the number of do-nothings who sat on their fat chops all day long and delivered zilch to the company’s bottom line. They were pure overhead FTEs with very narrow skillsets, and they had been at HP for decades primarily as Compaq adoptees. They were also smug as all h**l!
Hopefully these do-nothing FTEs will be the ones that will get the axe, but don’t count on it as these deadwood types know how to survive at HP. After all, they’ve survived literally dozens of layoffs already.
