How are you today? I have one question .... Were there any retirement benefits set aside for us?
This woman took a profitable company with a share price in excess of 60 dollars a share to a company with a share price of just over 10 dollars in the space of 2 years. She tried to undermine the hewlett and packard families in employees eyes when they did not agree with her compaq takeover bid. The takeover of that company nearly bankrupted HP and the company never really recovered from it. There is not 1 positive thing that person did while she was ceo of hp

Because of Carly's greed and incompetence, I lost my home, savings and retirement after the HP/Compaq merger. I still cannot find full-time work because of the timing of the workforce reductions with the economic disaster that was soon to take place and continue until now. I had earned stock options which became worthless thanks to her crude business decisions. Before that, she eliminated profit sharing and bonuses, while purchasing company planes to travel around the world to gain political exposure. On the backs of employees, she lived a fairytale life while at HP. She cares about no one but herself while stepping on everyone around her to achieve her personal goals. There is something evil about her. The way she addressed stockholder concerns was deplorable. She will use any tactic to achieve her personal goals on the backs of her supporters. She cannot be trusted. After 16 years, everything I worked for is gone. She will never accept responsibility for her poor decisions and reckless behavior.

I'm a Republican and VERY happy that Carly failed.
Carly Finkorina destroyed the HPWay and stomped it with her 6 inch expensive heels. She had NO respect for Bill and Dave's vision of a company where people would literally ache to do their best every day, because they knew the company would do its best for them. A company that built upon itself and gave back to each community.
I recall all her daily lies and the gatherings in large halls where cheering recorded sound and applause were piped in.
Her policies eventually ruined my 25 years career with HP. I actually blame the next self proclaimed genius Hurd's cutting to the bone and ship it overseas policies as well, but it was Carly that started a process where she and Mark ruined the lives of 130,000 souls via merge-n-purge theatrics, that have built nothing but a new SONY that's going to fall apart as startup consumer product competitors will chip away at it.
so long to both of them - what a waste. Good luck in hell.

I started to work at HP in 1996 as Volt contractor. Unix System Administrator. I was hired as full time employee in Jan 1998 Colorado Springs HP at Garden of Gods Road. I loved my job. Even when we had 10% pay cuts, I loved my job. We were told that our jobs were in jeopardy, so we were allowed to go work at Agilent Technologies for a year, only to loose our jobs totally.
I will never forgive Carly Fiorina for nearly destroying HP. When Carly was hired, I did try to tell my co-workers that she almost destroyed AT&T by causing to split into two companies AT&T and Lucent.
I also wanted to know how she could start as secretary to become a CEO?

Carly Fiorina cost me more than $2,000,000 in work income and in retirement savings. I was one of the first 6000 laid off in August, 2001. It was after a lie she posted about the HR having hired 6000 more than she told them to. Anyone remember this? She said HR had hired 6000 people when she had a hiring freeze on. So she had to lay off 6000 to go back to the pre freeze levels.
I had 19 and 1/2 years. I could have retired in another 5 years. As it happened I lost my 401K (due to her stock price mismanagement), my house, and nearly $1Million in wage income since the layoff. The way she did it also caused other employers to question any HPer's resume because she told the world that she was laying off the lowest ranking workers. She had kept rankings from being done for nearly 2 years. Then all of a sudden rankings had to be done in just a couple of weeks. Forced rankings caused 10% of all employees to be ranked lower than they ever had.
In the layoff of August, 2001, 67% of all the effected were over 40, over 15 years, and over $75,000 annual salary. The older employees were the target, and took the hit.
This came at a time when my oldest was only a couple of years away from going to college. So when it came time for her to go to school, I couldn't support her.
I remember very clearly the morning when she was fired. I hadn't heard the early morning news so I was driving to town with NPR Morning Edition on. The report came on that she had been fired. It was just pure flood of relief. I began to weep deeply. I had to pull over to the side of the road. I began to cry openly and loudly. Imagine, a grown man weeping on the side of the road because of a CEO being fired.
Carly Fiorina needs to go away and never return to the public eye. There is a special place in hell for this woman.
From: HP start 1973 ended 1991
I worked for HP for about 18 years - my husband for almost 30 (working from about 1975 to 2007 under Carly).
We were old HP - both of us used to have lunch with Bill and Dave (mostly Bill) at the Palo Alto Country Club.
What a company to work for - we were so lucky to have worked for it, in its early years!!!
I cannot understand how ANYONE would vote for her. She is just pure evil, as anyone at HP knows. My husband would be so upset everyday, over hearing how many of his friends were laid off - sometimes this would be happening several times a week. I was so glad when he retired and got out of her rein.
I can understand voting your political party, but NOT when you know what this woman has done.
Is there anything we can do to stop her getting in to the Senate -I sure hope so, and I hope all you HP folks help!
