Think Hurd’s actions screwed HP employees?

In a good year for equities (the Dow was up over 10%) Hewlett-Packard is down 18%, Oracle is up nearly 30% and IBM matched the Dow. Hurd likes to blame the board of directors but it was his self-admitted actions that cost shareholders and employees millions of dollars. He has yet to take responsibility for the harm he did to others and continues to try to keep the facts from becoming public. I don’t think his lasting reputation will ever be for anything more than a hatchet man.
