By the end of tomorrow, i will be unemployed. Ex-HP. I walked in five years ago with a bunch of paper. I will walk out tomorrow with a different bunch of paper. I am just a tiny guy in the huge HP. Nobody would know i was even there. Except for a few people. HP will go on.
From next week i can sleep as long as i want. I won’t have to sit in a cubicle anymore. But there will be no more salary. The tank will no more be refilled at the end of the month.
When i joined HP, i thought there would be loads of hardware the next room at our disposal. But it turned out to be a bit complicated than that. Procurements, you know. However, there was no lack of essential necessary to succeed at my job. If there’s any reason i did not excel, it’s entirely my fault.
Truth be told, no bells and whistles. But it was peaceful, stable and ethical. What more can i ask. I also had the coolest a manager can be.
It wasn’t the perfect place but i have no complaint. I will be proud to call myself Ex-HP and i will recommend it any day.
