Dell Inc. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Dell Inc.

Dell is all about under the radar layoffs

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 

I'm so tired of this place

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 


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 

Who goes, who stays?

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 


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 

Q2 May be stronger than you think

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 

Nothing in ISG yet

No layoffs in ISG yet. Sort of surprised since that group had a loss of revenue this quarter.

My ignorance

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.

Virtustream Layoffs

I have been hearing about layoffs in Virtustream. Yesterday, I heard people talking about Layoff in India offices. Can someone please confirm? Anything planned in other geographies?

One on one?

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?

voluntary separations

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 will it happen?

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 

What's the next to go?

With 401k match gone, what's the next thing they might cut? Or will they focus strictly on layoffs from now on?

401k - How ungrateful

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.

PIPs galore

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 

No 401(k) match through end of fiscal year

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 

Dell Ending 401k Matching

How long will it be before they announce these measures weren't enough and they are laying off? We are expected to work harder, longer hours for less and less reward. There's been a huge increase in digital traffic, yet Dell is struggling?

WFH Policy

Dell 2IC Jeff Clarke just send out one of the most thoughtful and mature Employee messages about WFH, effectiveness and the changing landscape of employee engagement. It 's a possibly one of the best. Cant complain, they are doing a good job in... —  read more 

401K Cut

Just heard the news. Effective June 1st. Unbelievable.

Sort your priorities

Was let go 4/3/2020 along with 25 more of co-workers across the country. I cringe when I see on linkedin how amazing michael dell is giving millions to help COVID. How about not firing employees during a worldwide pandemic and keeping our health... —  read more 

Severance Questions

Do you know of anyone who had been with EMC, now Dell EMC for more than 20 years, who successfully negotiated the terms of his or her severance package since it was changed? If so, ~What were the reasons stated for the termination? ~Was this... —  read more 


The UK is seeing layoffs of time served staff, normally senior that don't bow to immature management.

Nothing to complain about really

The Covid period has been well handled internally at Dell. There were no huge layoffs and no stupid knee jerk reactions. Yes the market is a mess but there was immediate "stay home" followed by a very well done series of Virtual engagements, training... —  read more 

Prepare for the sh--storm

Today it was announced internally that Michael Dell is foregoing his salary this year and all raises, promotions and bonuses are cancelled for the remainder of the year. The axe is coming. Short DELL if you have a portfolio.
