HP Sues Hurd For Joining Oracle

Koil He's a hatchet man, but I think HP screwed up (301 comments)

Mark Hurd's success is directly tied to the amount of people he can. He's absolutely known as a hatchetman, and will do so at the drop of a hat. The problem is, it works...he doesn't care about the employees, just the board, and doing what he does best makes them very happy.

Hurd used to be the CEO for NCR when I worked for him, and he did the same thing there....from there he moved to HP, and whacked something in the ball park of 7-9k jobs right away. Nothing will make a company look profitable faster than cutting payroll.

That being said, and my overall feeling for the guy is that he is a complete douche...HP screwed up in letting him go, plain and simple. As someone mentioned, you can't have it both ways, HP.

Secondly....I've followed this story a little bit, due to my knowledge of the man, and doesn't it seem to anyone else that the whole breakup w/ arguably their most successful CEO in a very long time, went really fast and really quietly?? (relatively speaking)

I believe there was more to the story as to why he left HP...what that it is,the world may never know.
