What do you call a bad sweatshop worker? Unsatisfactory.
From an older interview If visionary technology company founder Michael Dell could start up a business all over again, where would he do it now? One word: China. "I would go to China at age 19 and start my company there. It's a much better... — read more
Did anyone leave Dell for some time and then decided to come back? Are they welcoming? I heard it is the best way to get a promotion.
Anyone hear of more cuts? Have an offer which is kind of open ended on a start date (friend of a friend). Dell is making me really depressed so would like to start sooner rather than later but dont want to miss out on any package. Even if it is a... — read more
Does anyone have 2 full time jobs without employers knowledge?
Reading through all of the last day documentation and did not realize we get EAP for 36 months after leaving the company. This means free counseling, which after the last 1.5 weeks, I know I could use!! Worth looking into if you haven’t already. — read more
Rumors of remaining sales people having workloads doubled and many demotions. Those receiving the WFR may turn out to be the lucky ones.
So many talented and loyal employees were once again cut. None of the actual fat was removed because we all know the lazy ones are protected by their friends/family higher up the chain. This was once a great company but they're flushing it down the... — read more
I found out last Wednesday, and my last day is tomorrow. I don't understand why senior people didn't get cut first.
No matter how much you think your job is safe for now, please do research other companies you'd like to work for! My advice is well-intentioned and based on experience, because I once thought that not everything others say is true and that this... — read more
Dell has started to offer long tenured employees who are close to retirement age packages. Their last day is this Friday (9/16). This is across the organization and in no specific group. Some of the people being offered packages don't seem very happy... — read more
We briefly touched on the layoffs without going into any specifics.. SHOCKER.. It was stated that layoffs were done for now... "At least for the next 4-5 months." I have a hunch more is coming after the holidays. Has anyone had similar meetings... — read more
Is it just me or am I the only one that sees some of the management styles within Dell as counter-productive unconstructive and effortless. IE your management is all talk and no do. As well as some other positions that could be repurposed and... — read more
If there was any motivation left, it's all gone now. Instead of the company making every effort to keep the best employees, Dell gets rid of them. I watched as they cut some of the best employees while retaining the most incompetent ones. Do... — read more
I work for Dell Romania.. I get on really well with my manager and we had a quiet word over coffee. He has heard that massive layoffs are coming down the line. He had no timeline, that's all he had heard.
Had a meeting earlier today - leaders have a script to read from and everything. Not sure how long into the future this will persist but supposedly we’ll get official word from ELT after folks laid off exit (so after the 16th). Anyone else get... — read more
I've been laid off twice during my almost three decades long career. Each time was scary, but each time I ended up in a better position afterward. There are many employers who can appreciate experience and knowledge and are willing to pay for it. It... — read more
https://blocksandfiles.com/2022/05/06/a-glimpse-of-dells-future/ Early September: we expect a severe crisis and revenue impact, so we need every $ we fear that people will leave, the good ones go first (but 1. is true for every company, right... — read more
I jumped ship long ago, but I absolutely remember the fear associated with mass layoffs. After years of devotion, people are tossed aside just so recent graduates can learn what was just discarded. Dell consumed the best years of your life, made... — read more
My impression is that the leadership does not want to see the real picture. I don't know how else to explain some of their bad moves. I would be very worried if I were the leader of a company that everyone wants to leave. Those at the top seem to... — read more
Those that were let go recently, did anyone receive severance
From Dell CFO “ – Dell’s leadership team is also focused on developing young talent. “We continue to invest and hire in the undergraduate space,” Sweet says. “We wanted to ensure our entry-level programs into Dell, and our campus-level programs... — read more
Many Dell engineers have to take mandatory 'skills assesment' due by the 14th. Wonder why. It's not over yet people.
Anywhere else having them?
Seeing them lay off employees once again based on how much somebody is making and not based on their contributions proved to me how little Dell cares about us. We're nothing but numbers here. I know this is not exclusive to Dell but I also know for a... — read more
Heard that this past week was mostly sales teams impacted but wondering if marketing or sales ops layoff are also on the horizon, or already happening
I work from bed for 20 mins a day for Dell and get paid a huge salary . Working from bed is awesome.
The most incompetent people I ever worked with are still there. There are still a lot of talented people at Dell, but it's becoming more and more obvious that there is no room for them here. Why is that so? Why let the talent go to the competition... — read more
Feeling terrible, my manger of 1.5 years, best manager I've ever had, been at the company 5 years, doing incredible things for the team and Dell as a whole, gets laid off no warning. Really sad time. I wish him the very best finding a new better... — read more
All leadership in Services should be replaced. Bill Clark is full of sh-t, he is a horrible leader. Always repeating the same speech in every meeting for the last 6 years, pathetic leadership, zero ba--s to own up to missing his number by millions. — read more
End of layoffs roomer has it
DELL has proven its ability to execute again and again with so many blockbuster quarters in the recent years. But even the greatest companies have to, from time to time, perform necessary clean up which will by the way instill sense of urgency of its... — read more
I was promoted after a sales career into a leadership role, only to be layed off my 2nd quarter into the role. Leadership is talking about bringing in new talent and our record profit quarters, but they're letting a ton of great people go while... — read more
