I was notified on DDay, 10/17 that I was WFR’d. No rhyme or reason on rationale used to decide who was let go. Suppose I drew the short straw. Get your resume ready. If you made it this year, it will probably be next year.

Were you working in Spring? Looking to write about this, thanks!
I was WFRd earlier this year along with 5 others on my team. All of us had decades experience and over 60. We each were not very surprised as alot of work on orrdon with customers gave slowly shifted to partners or off shore remote. It's very muck financial results quarter to quarter. Little long term investment. As recession looms many others in transaction based business will shift to automated process it offshore. Covid helped many business to get over the hurdle What was sent to wirk at home, is being recognized as it can be done remote from less costly teams off shore.
I know they discriminate by choosing to lay off certain people. On my team I was he last White Person to be let go and the also they let go the only African American at the same time. They had Left India, Chinese and Vietnamese people left on the team. My work was plagiarized and forcible taken from me after I trained them and put detailed documents and test cases. That person was not let go.
The only fake news is from the brain roasting orange man that perpetuates misinformation. Think for yourself but in the essence of HPE culture, be a follower and never ask questions or you’re WFR’d.
It is sad that layoffs of any size (small or large) are considered normal yearly housekeeping at HPE.
Why does everyone contribute comments as Anonymous? There is nothing to be afraid of using your real name within the healthy HPE culture.
What area was hit. I heard small sections of sales were hit. Just normal yearly house keeping..
You're all wrong and right. The correct answer is that it is not fake news but it is not a major layoff/reorg as initial poster stated.
Definitely NOT fake news. They are concerned about overlapping payments to reps. They feel they are paying too many people on the same deal and are eliminating layers.
Fake news. Small, select layoffs only. No major reorg. Please don’t spread false info.
