"ALL companies ARE laying off staff at all levels big time right now. Don't believe it? Check out what's been happening at Oracle, Intel, Teradata, IBM, Twitter, and a whole lot of other companies. And don't forget to include HP in that list. "
This comment from another poster should be seriously considered! Now is a very poor time to look for work if you get laid off. With Print in sunset, and with HP struggling with its financial results, the already-announced 6000 employee layoff can easily balloon to a whole lot more people to get whacked.
Do the right things and start looking for another job outside of HP now. You've been warned. Don't become another WFR victim.
