    Doing her job?

    Realize that with current managment at HWP, to write a signed letter, stating your opposition to the CPQ acquisition, and sending it to Carly, would probably get you fired or put on the 'lost list', first to go in the next wave.

    This has not always been the case at HP. I've talked directly to Vice-Presidents with issues they didn't want to hear. Open and honest criticism was welcomed. Not anymore.

    Carly used to encourage people to email her. That encouragment is notably absent in this foray.

    I've got a number of subtle hints from managers: do not speak out against the merger.

    If you want to test it, go ahead and write the letter. I know its not your position, but do it to prove me wrong.
