Well I got my severance money today. I'm out of Satan's
and your point is what?????????????
that people must give their "real" names in order lend some credibility to the dirt dished on the company?
I guess your'e the same person who says all anonymous news sources need to give their real names too. What a load of crap.........
Needless to say, blogger and his whining cohorts have neither the integrity or guts to post on this mb with their real names. Instead, they spend a good part of each working day posting their libelous screeds and stealing from HPQ's shareholders.
Anonymity is the haven for such scum.
Tell you what, you give me your name and address and then, if I discover you're not just an incompetent manager for HP with an ax to grind, I will provide my name and mailing address. How's that? What say you? And if you don't respond intelligently, I'll be able to surmise the hidden agenda and the ulterior motive you may have.
I'm not suprised.....as someone who has worked "inside" HP, I wouldn't believe or trust much of anything there.....didn't used to be that way but it sure is now.
I saw lots of folks WFR'd and a month later there was an "opening"...funny thing was that the "slot" always seemed to be "re-located" to India, Malaysia, etc. When my contract ran out I chose to move on....even turned down an offer to become a "badged" employee....didn't trust the company.
Might be a rumor (about the person in France). Might also have to do with that country's work council. France is one of the most protective of their citizens and their jobs in Europe.
Try to get additional verification on the situation, including who paid the 70-80% of his pay until retirement. Could have been tax money in addition to HP payments.
Of course, the whole thing might be made up...
Uncle, the situation you describe is alien in every respect to every VSI case I've ever heard of.
Did you experience VSI in Britain?
A case I heard of in France, there was a person put on WFR, he got to stay a full year, and then received 70% or 80% of his pay, until retirement.
You couldn't be more mistaken than in your first paragraph.
People were let go, and the word spread through HP: do not hire back any WFRs.
I was 'released' from my job, and 1 day later an opening was advertised in my group.
