Hey all,

My wife and I currently live in Nampa ID (next to Boise) and I work for HP's Home and Home Office store (direct consumer sales). Due to some recent changes and some possible future ones, we are strongly considering moving to Austin to possibly work for Dell. I know they have had a lot of lay offs and I was wondering if anybody knows if this has impacted the sales force as well as the engineering side. Thanks.

Only layoffs in business units where they are changing direction and eliminating offerings. It seems that most of the layoffs are behind the company though. It is very difficult to secure headcount so anyone that they are hiring today are going to be in positions that are secure long term (as long term as a job can be these days). The only concern is the demand of the market and if there is another recession in 2012 then it could impact the sales jobs I suppose. It is hard to say at this point but the company has every intention of keeping people but it can't control market demand.
