Technical Services Representative (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 29 May 2018
A typical day at work in the Technical Services Field is never the same. Each day brings new challenges and new problems to solve. The hardest part of the job is to balance work life and family life, it can be very demanding and overtime is always available to those who wanted it. Unfortunately HPE senior management no longer feel that Technical Services is a worth while part of the company to have and has outsourced the world wide division to other companies. The most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with our customers and getting to know there infrastructure and their personalities.

Customer Service Analyst (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 7 February 2018
Hewlett Packard Enterprise which has now been sold was formerly EDS. HP started a mass lay off starting in 2016. Employees were on pins and needles not knowing who was going to be laid off next. That made for a very stressful work environment ! A lot of great people were out a job after many years of service.

Sales Support Executive (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 September 2017
Exactly what you'd expect at a Fortune 50 company: Highly pressured senior management doing their best against formidable odds. The company culture was surprisingly humane and supportive compared to others I have worked in, and have no fault with any of my managers.
I was given considerable latitude in the execution of my duties so long as the deliverables met internal standards and all of the normal HR policies were adhered to, along with the considerable regulatory / compliance rules that needed to be maintained to ensure corporate health and good standing.
It goes without saying that a proper cadence needed to be maintained without any oversight.
It was a good 5 year run, but at the end, when the spin off / downsizing happened to create the DXC brand, employees were reduced to a number on a spreadsheet. As a result, the layoffs made little to no sense, with a lot of very top talent that was producing billable results let go. The appearance is that the new DXC has given up on Canada, evidenced by the strategic path started two years ago to not make any investment in country, and instead to form a US centric delivery organization coupled with executive presence only in Toronto, and very little of that.
Latitude in performing responsibilities
Cons: Poor market strategies from senior management
