I’m glad I didn’t take the job they offered me a year ago! I’m sure it’ll be on the chopping block soon enough.
I dumped all 25 shares I had of HP. Not much, but I don’t need to lose anymore from their garbage.
I used to be a stalwart supporter of HP, but they’re not even a shadow of the company they were 10 years ago.

Ten years ago they were already down the tubes. The “witch” had already done her damage. The problem really started when they split off Agilent.
When I started at my current employer 12 years ago, it was a Compaq shop with the exception of an old HP “coffee table” server (I think it was the LH line).
I was so impressed that the thing was still in service with little in the way of maintenance, that when we bought several new servers, I went with HP on the recommendation of our software vendor. About six months later, I bought 5 more. The next few years showed that to be the worst decisions I ever made. Desktop quality product in a server box, IMHO.
That was 10 years ago, and nothing in my server room has been HP since. I have had stellar performance from both IBM and Dell equipment over the last decade>.
HP lost me as a customer, basically forever. I won’t even consider their products.
