Now this is stupid, HPE wants us to go into the office even though NOT A SINGLE MEMBER OF THE TEAM IS IN THE OFFICE. We are all geographically distributed, different time-zones, etc.
I have to put up with a 90 minute one way commute to be in the office by myself, talking on the phone with people who are in different states or countries. No need to say, this is plain ridiculous.
And HPE layoffs? Do not start me on that topic. NOBODY IS SAFE! Every single person is on edge and our morale is so low it’s unbelievable. Every lunch hour is spent bitching about the company and people are so cynical it’s beyond anything that makes any sense.
Are they going to be able to turn things around? I’d say no, it’s all about managing the death process and slowly unwinding this once great company. What a shame!
