Dell should keep “Tell Dell” open in a truly anonymous forum (no cookies or other tracking) all of the time so stressed employees don’t resort to asking desperate questions on boards like this one. MD, BS,JB are great leaders. I don’t believe... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Dell Inc.
Is severance based on base pay or total OTE for sales. Can’t blame Dell. No one wants to downsize really.... if this was your company then you’d be forced with making tough decisions. 6% cut means 94% kept jobs. In this tough world, I’d say that’s... — read more
A fair few team members all Storage and Server got the message. No Account execs yet . Targets will be rolled out as if Corona hasnt happened so there will be a large miss for all sales makers this half. Staff leave, morale falls, service... — read more
Anyone hit this week with a mystery calendar invite yet? Rumor said this would happen all month if it truly is a 6% reduction. Just curious if there is any early week activity to report.
The way to counteract rumors is to be transparent and our execs always fail in that area. Several BS announcements from top execs this week on how innovative the company is and embraces WFH , nothing about the overall plan . And then there is... — read more

6% Global reduction and all coming down over the next 4 weeks. About 10,000 people by the looks of it? Waiting for the internal announcement but it had to come. Good luck to all with 1:1's booked like me...
Got an impromptu meeting, leadership hopped on and delivered the news that we had lost several team members due to a company wide work force reduction. Anyone else seeing the same? Was told it is will be company wide.
Just interested to know is it dead out there or what? I dont know how long the industry could take running with such a large downturn in revenue and customers.
Dell has started hiring in certain business units. It’s a good sign of recovery. Not sure why managers say hiring freeze.
Would rather leadership say that we need to load the targets so high to reduce payroll and keep jobs in Corona than pretending they are remotely possible. We are all adults and we can take the news.
have you heard anything about voluntary separations? It would be a great thing as I know so many people who would take the money and leave the next day. Why would they lay off employees who would stay then?
Dell so far has done one of the best jobs we can see in COVID. We've kept staff, kept work going and adapted to the WFH VC grind. How long that can last is anyone's guess, but the world has changed and the need for vast numbers of direct face to... — read more
I don't think it's possible for this place to become less employee-friendly. The work environment is becoming more toxic each day and the morale is getting worse and worse. If the economy was in a better state, I'd already be on my way out. It's... — read more
Good, smart idea, why wouldnt they. Sell 30%, keep 51%, pay off tens of billions in debt or buy more companies that are in coronacrash. Smart move Mikey
No mass layoffs , its always been this way . They tried the mass layoff route before and it did not work out well . Instead its been a slow trickle of layoffs since the EMC merger and we have had WFR hanging over us ever since. The layoffs continue... — read more
Dell did an amazing job Q1, but the market and all indicators are for a tanking for all ICT vendors in Q2 as customer spending is smashed and government holds back on projects. It will take years to recover. Issue is going to be if the terrible... — read more
Maybe i am being paranoid, but I've heard a lot more references at the Sr. Director and Director level of 'belt tightening' and other cost savings efforts being ratcheted up in the coming months, and those references always include a mention of... — read more
I heard we are tracking around 90% currently, and while no one knows where we will actually land this doesn't seem as dire as I'd have expected given all that's going on. I don't know what would trigger mass layoffs vs what we are hearing is... — read more
Admitting that I really have no idea.... can someone explain why managers have to sign NDA’s before restructuring details are shared? Does this absolutely mean layoff’s or what might other reasons could a NDA bee needed. Thanks.
Any layoffs in Round Rock this month?
Some team members let go yesterday, US
No layoffs in ISG yet. Sort of surprised since that group had a loss of revenue this quarter.
Worked there 24 years with excellent Performance and die hard commitment Was let go with zero thanks other than the corporate jargon ... we thank you for your service blah blah blah. Hard life lesson. Wish I had learned it earlier. They claim they... — read more
Just got to see Dell team in Florida got laid off.
Please post or + here if you get invited to an unusual or rescheduled one on one with your management. Questions for anyone who got news of lay-off in this manner (during one on one). Any suggestions on how to respond or prepare?
I've seen some talk of companies offering voluntary buy outs or voluntary separations. In some circumstances this could be a win win. In my opinion this is something Dell should institute immediately. We just saw KQ announce her retirement based... — read more
How do we know who will be laid off? Anyone been through this before want to chime in on what divisions / departments may be safe vs who is more likely to go when this stuff starts to go down? I've never been through this before...but I know Dell... — read more
With 401k match gone, what's the next thing they might cut? Or will they focus strictly on layoffs from now on?
When Dell is forced to reduce the workforce, how do you think it'll happen? Will they give notice and do it in stages? I'm nervous that they are going to announce it during the quarterly on Thursday. Can those of you who have worked for the company... — read more
Quotas don’t seem to consider the economic situation, and continue to rise at a pace that can only be accomplished through new customer acquisition. It would appear the strategy is to over quota your more tenured reps while giving something more... — read more
So many ungrateful whiners talking about throwing in the towel over your 401k match being cut...which at most equaled $7k per year. S— it up and keep on going or quit. Ive some Dell to Sell and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
How about that 401K for AMER?!! Hold on tight everyone, here we go....
We are suspending the U.S. 401(k) match for all eligible team members effective June 1, 2020, with the last match set for May 29, 2020. You will notice the change in your first June paycheck. You can continue to contribute on an individual basis, but... — read more
Just heard the news. Effective June 1st. Unbelievable.
