- Job cuts: 30,000
Meg Whitman has presided over a truly dramatic downsizing at Hewlett-Packard.
The once-iconic company has slashed 85,000 jobs since Whitman became CEO in 2011.
That includes up to 30,000 jobs that HP ( said earlier this month it plans to eliminate. That's more job cuts than at any other U.S. company this year, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. )
The latest round of layoffs are linked to HP's plan to break up into two separate publicly traded companies. They are taking place at HP Enterprise, which is the Whitman-led business that will focus on faster growing areas like cloud computing and cyber security. The other business, known as HP Inc., will sell PCs, printers and slower-growing devices.
