I heard VCE is moving out of FRANKLIN and up for sale for that division can this be true???
Topics regarding layoffs at Dell Inc.
Oh my... While the pandemic is increasing the demand for new laptops and PCs, Dell has not been able to take advantage of the work-from-home computer sales boom for two quarters in a row. The sales results are awful and worrying:... — read more
Im one of the leftovers from the sept cuts whos now had to do all of my usual work plus the work of a senior colleague who was one of the ones let go. Most of this new stuff ive literally never done before and while initially verbally supportive... — read more
I just received my first unemployment payment and it was straight unemployment, no covid relief, is that correct? I have a friend that is also laid off and they are receiving extra $$ for covid (laid off in July, NOT from Dell). Just wondering if... — read more
Is anyone else experiencing delays with their UI claim in Massachusetts?
If you believe that bullc-ap then you're a fool. If you are chosen to get WFR'd in your group when your peers have not then that is personal. It's telling you in the stack rankings that you're the most expendable. So next time somebody tells you it's... — read more
October is not shaping well apparently, November may be new round?
If you look at Dell's financials, almost all their profits for the past six months resulted from cost cutting, and despite efforts, net income has been trending down. And people, unfortunately, are the most expensive aspect of running Dell. If you... — read more
I got laid off on September 2020 after about 10 years working for Dell in Santa Clara, Ca. They gave me only two days notice??? Because of pandemic, no face to face meeting so i can ask my questions. Just a cold phone call. I'm 60 years old with... — read more
Yes layoffs have started. The first round was last month around the third week. I was laid off. Have received my separation agreement docs. Sent the signed docs but have yet to receive my severance.
Anyone else shudder at the "Wall of Shame" speech re Powerstore Sales Funnel? Publishing a global shame file for anyone who's customers aren't using PS?
I noticed that the last paragraph on the separation agreement states that the doc must be signed and returned by close of business on the 13th day. Since COB is mentioned should we only count business days? Sales reps were somewhat encouraged to... — read more
I heard they're already notifying people who are affected. Is this true or just fear talking?
With no paycheck last week and no unemployment either it’s going to get really tight soon... an email or something indicating severance will be paid on such and such a date would be helpful to many I’m sure. Jobs are out there, I wish everyone luck!
I read the agreement where Dell will pay for COBRA for 2 months. After the 2 months is up, has anybody continued with COBRA or find another insurance carrier while still looking for job?
Closed offices, salespeople no longer expensing travel, capped internal movement pay and promotions,stopped contributing to 401k. There are incompetent people still employed but I’m now paying $2000k a month for insurance during a pandemic.
Just curious if anyone knows how long it takes between sending back the signed paperwork and receiving the severance payment, any ideas? I know they have up to 30 days but I am hoping it doesn't take that long...
I’ve heard there are non-competes, even for people getting WFR’d is there anywhere we can confirm that?
It is supposed to be received within five days, which makes today the 5th day, and I have not received anything yet so I am wondering if anybody has.
I’m so sorry for all Dell folks who list their job especially those 50+. These folks may have just paid for kids college, are helping aging parents, and trying rebuild savings to prepare for retirement themselves, WFR could devastate them as it’s... — read more
Layoffs are nothing new at Dell. Now, a big round might be unusual for sure but small, sporadic layoffs have been taking place on weekly bases for a couple of years now. Anybody who's been paying attention knows this by now. So learning that this... — read more
I heard Dell is doing rounds of reduction all the way through 2021? Is that true?
Any layoffs in SDC Singapore?
Any chance I can get people who are in their fifties and up who were laid off and found a new job with similar pay to share their stories?
Looking through all these posts, if they are true, we are reducing headcount across a wide spectrum of roles. It's head count driven. Right now the people who want to leave the most are likely to be the ones in the roles that are the most... — read more
In your experience what is the profile of those who have been WFR'd the last few months? Managers? Techies? 40/50+ etc?
Good thing in all of this is that Dell name still carries significant weight and it's still a major asset on your resume. If you are applying for jobs, chances are it'll be a major plus if you still work here. Now is the perfect time to take... — read more
A question for those who were laid off last week: has anybody been told they could reapply after some time has passed? A friend who was affected said his manager might have hinted at something like that to him, but I think that’s just wishful... — read more
Three Questions Please. Can you still get unemployment if you get a severance? If so, does the severance reduce your unemployment amount? Was there any additional severance for employees over 50 years of age? Seems like it might take... — read more
During my time at Dell, it never felt quite right. I am curious if the story they told about the constant reorg-ing is true? Every couple of months my role changed or I got a new manager (or both). In fact the first day I started I discovered my boss... — read more
After being impacted on Wednesday, I have felt a range of emotions. But thankfully I will be ok financially. One of the reasons why is because Massachusetts requires PTO to be paid out in the last paycheck and I didn’t realize right away that my last... — read more
Should the thread be copied to the survey?
I understand companies have to tighten belt at bad times. I cannot blame Dell for that. But Jeff Clarke, you told folks will be treated with dignity. However what happened is anything but dignified. You fired a bunch US citizens while 80 percent or... — read more
Any layoffs for TDC yet?
Is it too much to hope that it's over? That I can finally relax?
Anyone hear anything? It’s so quiet
As awful as it is that good people were let go, the people on their teams who are still there in many cases will be expected to do their current work plus the work of the people that were let go. The work doesnt go away. Especially awful if you... — read more
Anyone know if the layoffs in Services are done or still to be continue? This really s—s all energy out of me to work. Should I be working or should I be out looking for jobs?
