After the shutdown for end of year I believe employees will return next week and get laid off.

@WX3FSS9-rjxu " Customers are suffering and getting the short end of the stick"
I couldn't agree more. HPE is doing a piss poor job of actually listening to their customers wants and needs, especially after the sale. Customers will vote with their money when their refresh/contract renewals come up, but upper management will be too dense to see the correlation and causation. They'll blame it on an "ever-changing industry."
HPE did layoffs in January. They waited until the second week. I was given 2 weeks notice with no warning. What was to be my performance review and goals setting meeting with my manager turned out to be notice that your position has been eliminated. The ironic thing is that before I left the building for the last time, I had 3 managers talk to me about the possibility of coming back as a consultant in the future. While I have no bad feelings for the local management, the folks at the higher levels have no idea what they are doing. They are running spreadsheets (many of which are not accurate because of pressure to make the results make the people using the data look smart) and not businesses. Customers are suffering and getting the short end of the stick in many cases as selling the wrong product can impact ones reputation. Even when the product is what the customer specifically requested, there are efforts to make them switch to something else (even when it is not as appropriate for the customer need). When people ask about poor performance being a factor, I have to disagree. I have been evaluated in the highest tier on a continuing basis.
Only Inc had layoffs.
Isn't this the new HP-Way? Beware of any sudden hiring spree as well. This is a tactic that HP/HPE managers use to buffer their staff when they know a layoff is on coming.
