Oh Look... HP CEOs fail at failing, then get huge bonuses
There were emails going around at HP about how bad the deal was. Not to mention the "other deal" that was horrific.... the acquisition of Palm/WebOS for 1.3 Billion dollars. Yup, fail fail fail and get paid paid paid as a CEO. Meg sucked too so did Hurd.
Meg fired Leo siting the stupid deals and ALSO the attempted first breaking up of HP into two crappy pieces. Meg thought it was a bad idea then. Then of course ended up doing just that.
Many bad business executions and of course millions in Exec bonuses. Sometimes I think working at HP was like working for the government.
