Been through both styles of RIFs. The smaller but frequent cuts are worse than the large ones. I understand that the aim is to avoid COMMs concerns, however the prolonged worry and uncertainty pushed on staff likely causes more disruption and... — read more
Retiring, yeah right.
I'm staying remote but I'm actively looking for another opportunity. This heavy handed and poorly executed directive is my last straw. The lack of raises and lack of corporate vision has lead me to want to go elsewhere.
If I am not on a chopping block now, I will be soon. I’ll just stick strictly to completing what I am supposed to do per my job description, and put all my energy into looking for a new job. I wouldn’t even mind being paid less, for as long as I am... — read more
Two more rounds of layoffs just like HPE is expecting. HPE is using a similar management consulting firm with same strategies. A bonus restructre is also in the works.
Are we losing our bonus if remote?
I know many are advocating for quiet quitting, but few also warn you that it can lead to quiet firing instead of layoffs. And there's a huge difference between being fired with nothing to show for it and being laid off and receiving a severance... — read more
Just curious if anyone has hears or knows if employees in rotational programs are also added to the usual rounds of layoffs. Any thoughts?
I was in a meeting I wasn't meant to be with SVPs and it was disclosed that those who go remote will get dramatically reduced bonuses from this year forward. Don't go remote.
Are there more layoffs coming? It would be nice to know. What are the Dell staff hearing? Share your thoughts and opinions.
Has anyone reached out to an organizer about unionizing Franklin? It's getting unbearable. More with less, pennies for raises. No promos, no internal job postings. https://aflcio.org/
I have been laid off recently. No luck so far. It seems to me that tech companies are so deep in restructuring and cuts that they are yet unsure about which profile of peeps they need to take on. The problem is that I have no luxury to be jobless for... — read more
More layoffs???? Need to know ASAP
Seems like 99% of employees are hanging around at Dell for a hefty bonus. If Dell shareholders are wanting to reduce accrued payroll and capex why aren't they reducing or removing the bonus? Will there be upcoming changes where only hybrid workers... — read more
Looks like Dell got to the admins of this site. You can only post once every few days now. Must be trying to cut down on the influx of negative comments
Curious if anyone knows what happens if I choose to work hybrid and am told there’s not enough space to work from the site I choose?
Do we know what happens if you opt for remote? Are you really putting a target on your back?
We had training this week and got the messaging. Didnt need it. I like the office as I have 5 kids at home and dont need to be told I will feel energized. Just employee people with young kids they will be up that escalator lickety split.
If we stopped hiring all the time. Every year we overhire, then layoffs happen. There have been very few hiring freezes lately, and even those were short and didn't apply to everybody. If the goal is to reduce the overall number of employees, that it... — read more
Dell you are nothing but a logistics and manufacturing company. You won’t ever BE a technology company. You don’t build technologies! You’ve got an upper management c-suite and SVP suite that lives in 1996. You’ve got no experience in building... — read more

Its the same intelligentsia BS that these central planners in government take. They are focused on hacking and slashing and "process" to optimize, they don't know how to really create value like true industrialists. Dell's quality and innovation will... — read more
Honestly, I prefer when they just walked you out the door. At least you were done right then and there I’m trying to wrap up all my HR stuff and my manager keeps asking me for additional items and transition. Plus, the HR rep sent me a welcome to... — read more

chop chop ! when will he chop his own job?
Heard today VMware synergy is no longer. Whole team and management are gone. Third party software team are not immune to redundancies either… which other teams are impacted I wonder.
I am seeing people post on LinkedIn they were laid off and their last day is Friday. Here’s to another week of anxiety not knowing who will be gone and who will pick up even more workload.
But just because cuts are sometimes unavoidable doesn't mean we have to handle them with all the sensitivity of a Mafia hit job. The current process of frog-marching employees out the door and disappearing them on Slack is not only degrading to... — read more
Told i'm gone.... My team is going to be in a pickle now... good luck Dell......
Recently laid off and offered a package. Does Dell entertain severance negotiations? Or is it too risky to even try?
It is continuing today
Heard this is the week for WFR globally. Anyone know of impact in Ireland?
You are all saying that the goal is to cut the total number from 130 000 to 100 000. Anyone knows what's the current number? How many employees are being laid off per week?
Are you back on the office or waiting for march to apply for the remote option ? If in the office, is it busy ?
I mean, every week now? That’s gonna have a fantastic impact on productivity. And mental health. Not that anybody at the top in this place cares about actual human beings.
Checked the internal job postings. 75% are AI related
Manager scheduled a 1 on 1 for this morning. While joining the Zoom meeting HR popped in. Bam. Laid off.
