You already knew this was happening with the offshore sales desk that started a couple of years ago. Hiring H-1B's while you're laying off US employees... by the way H-1B's are not cheap to sponsor, but probably cheaper than US employee benefits... — read more
My last post when I dared say Dell is not that bad as an employer as some say got heavily downvoted but here we are several weeks later and Dell once again ranked among the top ten world's best employers. Considering that Forbes uses employee surveys... — read more
It’s a mess, just watch Deepak, the ring leader of the mess, he will be out. How many jobs will have to pay the price for his snake oil.
Two weeks since Dell announced some cuts I’ve spent hoping that I might find myself on the layoff list but nothing happened. I’m glad at least that some other people, who were afraid of it, that they are still there. Do you know how many people were... — read more
Does Dell ever push back on state unemployment benefits for laid off employees? I have to re-up and unemployment is waiting a response. Thanks everyone!
When I think back to my first month when I came to Dell, I was very enthusiastic and tried to show everything I know, and I didn’t really know all that much. However, I had colleagues who pointed out some things to me and helped me. What is... — read more
Say what you will, but Dell is still among the best employers. I've worked at several other industry giants before and I know the true definition of a toxic culture. What we have is certainly not it. I think people are simply too sensitive these days... — read more
The rift is driving some Dell partners to push business to HP and Lenovo. This is also on CRN https://www.crn.com/news/mobility/dell-direct-sales-in-conflict-with-channel-partners

Every company has to change, but the problem is that I don't see Dell changing for the better. Today I am quite depressed because another colleague has left. Now this feels like a completely different company for me. All the colleagues I really... — read more
If implemented fully at Dell, the vaccine mandate will force some people to quit. Not too many, but enough to slow down any possible layoffs that were coming our way (or maybe even cancel them altogether.) As somebody who's been fully vaccinated for... — read more
Good way to thin out the difficult team members. Sorry "layoff"
Follow your intuition- Don't be fooled by trolls who make sarcastic comments! This is NOT FAKE NEWS! There are layoffs happening- call it restructuring or whatever! A SIGNIFICANT number of tenured employees over 45 of all genders were impacted. AND... — read more
In which ways are you expanding your skillset? People like to complain because it’s a way to vent their frustrations about this place. This is good because others who intend to work here can also be made aware of what problems people are facing here... — read more
This smells of tuning numbers and creative accountancy.. Or at least the investors think so. They say Tom Sweet has artistic mind. What is your take?
I’ve heard some rumors that there could be significant layoffs soon, but hopefully they’ll just remain rumors. Some managers are leaving so there is a lot of speculation going around, however, unfortunately, rumors often come true. I’m not... — read more
Lots of openings because they are always having under-the-radar layoffs of older and/or higher paid employees, as well as offshoring and replacing American workers. This is exactly what's been happening. If we don't hear about major layoffs that's... — read more
I can't wait to see! Will be very, very interesting
My guess: by 20%. Dell will report 20% higher earnings than the estimates and the stock will jump by at least 15%. Buy Dell stock now otherwise you will regret big time! Go big or go home, people!
Employees are given lots of promises but Dell delivers none of that...... I don’t see those good changes.
Everything will be much clearer after the earnings report, however, judging by the atmosphere... the future is gloomy. I hope I’m not right, but to me personally it seems like the layoffs are around the corner.
Earnings are on Aug 26, 2021, then we will know how things are going , in the meantime most of the posts here are complete BS
sounds there is very little change on GTM 3.0 except overlay mgmt and up is being retired. So no changes to Joe-Storage but his boss needs new place to do some good mgmt. All in all Dell is holding well
I really wish I didn't have to wait for another two years. I'm stressed out as it is and the closer I get to the date, the more I worry about being laid off. I used to enjoy my job but now the constant threat of layoffs has taken all the fun out of... — read more
Over the past two years, thousands of tech company employees have taken a stand: they do not want their labor and technical expertise to be used for projects with the military or law enforcement agencies.
Cryptic, sarcastic, paranoid, speculative, does anyone honestly know if whatever "it's" (WFR, RIF, REORG,GTM3.0) called is either happening now or really soon? Most of us checking here seriously wanna know- for realz! ..and hopefully will a whole... — read more
I can’t and unfortunately, I’m not optimistic that next year could be nice at Dell. I’m willing to accept a much worse option just to not stay here anymore. This is not a company, this is a dinosaur.
Dell could soon become better known for its constant reorgs and layoffs happening in silence, than for new products. Job stability is a utopia, but here I am really tired of being in constant fear of what the new reorganization will bring. Do... — read more
Being out of the interview game, I have noticed how hard it is for a software developer to find a new position. The interview process is lengthy, inclusive of Hackerearth tests to even get a first interview. Once an interview is granted, you need to... — read more
When I joined Dell through an acquisition, in the first Tell Dell survey we all filled it honestly - the good and the bad. As a result, my unit was one of the lowest scoring in Dell, and we immediately heard about it from management - our culture is... — read more
When I retired I had 25+ years in and was in my late 50s. During my whole career I kept my skills updated so I left at the top of my game. Once in a awhile when I am bored I’ll take a consulting gig part-time just to keep busy. I also come here to... — read more
I have never quit in my life. I was laid off twice, but never in my life did I think I would be walking out on a decent job of my own volition. But when you are having serious problems with a belligerent and borderline abusive manager and HR is doing... — read more
The company's reputation is very bad. Do they think that by doing everything not to trigger news and or WARN act, they will avoid an even bigger drop in reputation? I believe that the reputation is one of the many reasons why they are trying in all... — read more
I’m pretty pi---d right now. A coworker just claimed credit for my contributions on a project we were working on. This is a first for me and I’m not sure how to handle it. Do I call him on it and get accused of not being a “team player” or do I let... — read more
Is this for real? Is there a WARN? Are managers under NDA? Is this a lay-off or a reorganization? What is the severance? Most importantly, are they accepting volunteers?
Sorry team but they want us back in the office. Can we do it? https://austonia.com/big-tech-returns-to-office
Did you know that Dell in 2000 was the third richest US tech company in terms of revenue? It was more powerful than Microsoft and look at it now - it is less than 1/20th of the value of Microsoft. sic transit gloria mundi.. How about time travel... — read more
(like me), it just means you’re in the wrong company. I got a pretty good offer from another company, although not much better than here, but my intention is to leave this here as soon as possible. I'm debating whether to wait a little longer and... — read more
