I know this will be downvoted but I'm still going to say it. I finally enjoy my work again. Part of it is the fact I have a new manager who is ten times better than her predecessor (she actually knows what she's doing and she is not managing through... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Dell Inc.
Build it up and break it down. Laughing all the way to the bank no doubt. Dell/EMC portfolio next?
The EMC sales leadership coup keeps on rolling’. The storage sales guys sell sizzle. Don’t know c–pbeyond their PPT decks. They’re pimps for the channel sales. Without their SEs, they’re Ralph Lauren dummies Now they have to sell servers... — read more

It’s not good news ..earnings estimates could see a roughly negative 10.6% impact
so, with the possibility of the corporate tax rate to increase, can we expect layoffs to happen to cover the additional expense to the company. These tax increases usually hurt the pockets of the employee/consumer with increased prices and other... — read more
Looking to take my pension after WFR. Seems dead. Mercer has no clue. Dell Benefits Center is a robot. no answer. Help!
Here are my three things: makes the greatest laptops, servers and storage money can buy smart and competent technically managers CEO who is a visionary and deep thinker; also compassionate soul One of the best Tech companies in the... — read more
I love it when others respond to some rumor about cuts with the belief that there is no chance of there being layoffs anytime soon. Is Dell such a stable company that it gives such a sense of security to someone to confirm that there are no layoffs... — read more
dell financial service rates are soooo high, it is financially advisable to get a loan from your banks. They have crazy costs and never tell you the fine print. You get screwed royally at the end of lease. You end up paying so much more and you get... — read more
K. corporation tax will increase to 25% in April 2023 as the government looks to restore public finances in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic....more layoffs coming after Level 5 is finished.
Wish we had the VBO again. Just heard a major Boston based financial institution is implementing another VBO program...think green pyramid.
With the uptick in pc sales this year due to covid and the work for home culture, with covid restrictions starting to ease up, do we anticipate Dell to slip back to marginal again. Server and storage is down and pc sales is up, but if pc sales... — read more
Is someone just spreading the malicious news, or are the layoffs really underway? If anyone has accurate and more detailed information, please share it. If someone opened this thread below just to cause panic, that’s just not okay. I wish someone... — read more
Normally we are up here saying "numbers are down, we're laying off" This time is different. The layoffs announced today are replacing expensive field reps with inside roles OR giving those field reps the opportunity to move sideways and be... — read more
I am expecting an offer for a Senior Principal Engineer Role in Dell @ Round Rock and i wanted to know if anyone can share what is the min - max pay scale for that role?
A few of my colleagues are frothing at the mouth over Dell hiring amid all the layoffs and changes (or more like cuts) in benefits. They can't believe it's happening. Franky, there's nothing surprising to me there. Dell wanted to get rid of the... — read more
I'm relatively new at Dell and working in a small group on a very specific project. My question to those who've been with Dell for a while: historically did Dell usually layoff people/group who worked on canceled projects right away, or did they... — read more
Anybody know what the typical multiplier is for these levels as a % of your pay? Thank you.
Heard that Dell will sell Avamar&Networker employees to HCL. Dell still owns the Avamar&Networker product but Dell plans to force the employees to sign with HCL as outsourcing workers.
I was laid off at the end of last month. The one thing I regret is not being better prepared. I didn’t bother to grow my network, or keep my skills fresh because I thought I was safe. I was complacent in every essence of the word. What small... — read more
Which were for you the Golden Years of EMC? I say 2003-2008. there was a lot of money, I did not need anything, my job was stable, my salary was sufficient to feed the whole family. Joe Tucci was the King of The Hill for me.. and now, look what has... — read more
WOW!! a source of mine heard MANUFACTING FRANKLIN and APEX might be moving to TEXAS like the other companies. I believe it DELL is all about saving and cost period.
VMWARE WFR is in the news again. Timing of WFR at VMWARE and Dell seem to happen at close to the same time. My buddy says Dell’s WFR started yesterday? Dammit! I was optimistic the decline in Covid would open up near term hiring. Anyone here... — read more
patent cash reduced to 2000 $/person with 6000 $ cap /patent. No LTIs now.. It's a good move given that most patents (99.99%) are waste of money and only making lawyers and uspto rich!!
I was listening to a team talk the other day and it really hit home that there are other strategies in place in all organisations (including Dell) to keep "producing assets" (People) and remove non producing costs. Right now, that's buildings... — read more
What now - does that mean that VMWare is going slowly to the dogs? I think not - VMWare still has people like Fidelma Russo and Chad Sakac!
Me thinks this blog is about to light up with news of pending FY22 WFR. It hit me by surprise back in September, looking back there was nothing I could’ve done differently to avoid being let go. Things have gotten worse post- September ‘20. Not... — read more
What types of surveillance does Dell use to monitor their employees. Example. Mobile conversation recording? Zoom monitoring? I’m not paranoid, (we’ll maybe?). I didn’t do anything crazy, but really just curious. Please don’t reply if you... — read more
That will really help when laid off
Does Dell HR give out salary info to prospective employers? I’ve interviewed for a new position and I’m wondering if they give that info out. I fudged mine just a little (seriously just a little) but now I’m wondering if they give that stuff out. I... — read more
Seems we now get MLK day off this year.
Did anyone else get a notification that their Virgin Pulse part of the Wellness Hub was being cancelled effective Feb 4th? Could this be a sign of pending layoffs? Or was this an expected thing after completing the wellness incentives for the health... — read more
I am wondering how everyone is doing that was laid off in Sept.? Have most found jobs? If not, how is the search going? I am still looking but had a few very promising interviews this week so I am hopeful an offer will come out of it soon. So... — read more
Christmas is next week and people are still not sure if they're safe from layoffs in 2020. Imagine how much you have to fail as a company for that to be true? And to think Dell was once known as a place to go if you wanted to grow your career. Well... — read more
