Thread regarding Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) layoffs

Just got a call from a recruiter about a position at HPE.

Is the turmoil subsiding at all? Is the "can't return after wfr" policy still in place? How's the current management?

@XYAs5gM-byfy When I heard of that happening to the older CE's in my geo, I thought "what a d*ck move." They truly didn't understand or appreciate the value-add of the relationships you spent years building with customers. This is the nail in the coffin for many customers, especially since Unisys plans to have some of their legacy CEs start working HPE cases and visa versa.

to @XYAs5gM-byfy . $ 400 clock ? Mine looks like it cost about fifty bucks. It fell apart as I was removing it from the shipping box. Then again I took voluntary early retirement so maybe our group didn't rate something that you could put on your fireplace mantel.

Now that all service employees work for Unisys, I wouldn't go back for twice the money. They openly engaged in age discrimination and sent me a retiree badge and a $400 clock with my name engraved on it after laying me off with 36 years of faithful service and no performance issues.

The sooner they go out of business the better.

"WHy in the hell would you go back after that?"

I agree. You'll be haunted by the memory of the first layoff, wondering if it will happen again.

And ask yourself this question: Is HPE doing anything to differentiate itself, or is it just going to continue mostly selling very low margin Linux boxes as its customer base steadily moves into the cloud?

I would go back it it were better money. Fill your bag until it ends then find another job.

I was let go in Oct 17, I received a call from an old Manager in June 18 and he asked if I was looking to come back. I asked about the "cant return after WFR" he stated there is a way around that.
