What a chicken sh-- company. All they do is pump and dump to inflate their stock buyback scam. Hopefully, HDS goes out of business along with EMC and these sh-- companies.

Anyone from APAC PPD? Heard that dept was hit harder than the rest.

Also, grapevine says that its mainly due to bad investment calls. Most possibly a bad investment on a Flash storage. Can anyone confirm that?

Just heard from a friend that one group (FBDE/HNAS) went from about 200 down to 40 people.

@LCTkhwp-uhaa, it couldn't be 40%. It could not be that large without some news about it being reported. I've heard nothing in official news sources.

I'm not discounting the OP's rumor but I'm a little skeptical about 40%.

Big layoffs all across HDS organization,myself included. Around 40% of workforce cut. Very sudden and very hard hitting.
