Thread regarding Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) layoffs

Surprise, Surprise! More Layoffs Coming Your Way!

Management has THREE passes scheduled, for refining their layoffs planning cycles! The more cycles of planning, the more layoffs! (If they were planning to lay off a mere 10 people, can you imagine more than 1 round of planning?).

I have it from good sources that they pre-plan your "failing grade" at your next review. Get a bad grade? They are greasing the skids to dump you! And you can work super-extra-hard after that bad review, walk on water, invent time-travelling computers, and more, and they will STILL lay you off and blacklist you to boot, then hire an H-1B to replace you, since "they can't find any qualified natives". So don't work extra hard after your bad review, you are wasting your efforts... Well OK, don't work extra hard at HPE, other than to find your next job outside of HPE!!!

Also if you plan to sue HPE in such events, the time is NOW to gather up copies of all your previous reviews, because they may change some of your past reviews retro-actively, from an "A" or a "B", to a "D" or an "F"!!!! (OK so it's not ABC, it's "accelerating", "stalled", "monkey splat", "dead skunk", whatever, they change the labels twice a day it seems).

Expect significant layoffs spread out over the next year, not clumped together too much, don't want to attract too much media attention, the same old deal...

Could you quantify a bit when you say 'good review'? Perhaps share the bonus % and raise %? Of course for not being identified, you could perhaps mention a range for the bonus % and raise %.

If you are not comfortable, that is fine too.

I have not heard of any layoffs so far either in the last 2 months.

Well, take this as a datapoint. I work for HPE and there were no large layoffs that affected my division. I received a good review for 2018 with no resistance or negotiating.

I am not here to say that Person A or B is wrong, just wanted to point out that rumors are just that. Remember that the next time you see a post like this. Don't necessarily disregard it, but remember it could be completely unfounded. I forgot about this post shortly after reading it, and only recent saw a reason to re-refrence it.

This post was highly inaccurate in hindsight.

Yes, it puts a different spin on what they know and can really do. SVP's do know more.

How can the company plan ANYTHING for the long term if even VPs have no clue that sh-- could hit the fan in 2 weeks?

Keep in mind that even your VP probably doesn't know what WFR and site changes are coming more than two weeks out. So whatever they tell is good for about two weeks.

I was told by my manager that according to upper management

according to upperer management, there would be no more

layoffs in 2018. Pretty obvious that it was all b---s---!!

Well, did he mention fiscal or calendar year? November will be FY'19 already, and now the company is certainly at full throttle planning the budgets for FY'19. So, if the rumor is true, more layoffs could be happening starting on November (Q1'19).

I see nothing in the pipeline to give long term hope to future earnings. Having one blade on the ISS is not a future, it is a gimmick. Best of luck to all but, invest in YOUR future, it isn't with HPE. Remember the most important person in the world.... YOU.
