Thread regarding Dell Inc. layoffs

Is it ethical?

Our organization/data-domain is hiring a handful of replacements. The resumes / candidates / hires are referrals from our bosses (our VP and senior director). They are new and appear to be staffing mostly their friends.

No one gets a job which they don't deserve. So just don't waste ur time here talking about it. Dell is a good place to work and we all should be proud for contributing to it.

What’s different, all politics were in place in NDC. From one team to another, QA to support and sustaining. All insiders have jobs, just screw Dell company with fat paycheck,bonus and LTI.

No work for 10 years and just fun.

Managers are dead weight specially in India. They are expected to be know nothing. I have seen many employees go and explain issues to managers and they say manager won't know the details I ought to explain it. Is that the rule of a engineering manager? Actually it should be other way around - Engineering Manager explaining the tid-bits and nity-girty of all technical issues to the team and how to solve it. You look inward in your team and find if your manager is capable of that. What qualifies them to be a Engineering Manager? What was the role of hiring team who hired? AAh people management skill !!! A sale point. Is that a skill anyone needs experience in? Engineers need not be managed they have to be led. If you have engineers that has to be proactively managed - meaning looking after what time he is coming, what he is doing, better not have him in your team.

Does anyone do any real work in COE Pune? most of the managers spend time gossiping and sipping tea. Dead weights lying around as they cannot find jobs elsewhere....

its simple, if the group is not aligning with your interests, you can blame them for all the reason else everything looks beautiful. that's the way human mind is evolved and it is part of evolution.

It is not unusual for senior people to bring in people they trust, into roles that they know these people can perform well. It is obvious that if these people are not fit for these roles, that it will only reflect badly on the senior person. You are only as good as the weakest link.Stop moaning and get on with your job, or better still, leave and give way to someone more positive and willing to forge their own path.

There is Ethics Hotline but who will dare to dial? Does anyone has 56 inch chest? Whoever has are shown the exit door at the earliest by hook or by crook. Not only Ethics Helpline, every year in the beginning every employee has to go through "Ethics Policy Guideline" and sign off with successfully completing. But then you will find no manager even knows what is written in those policies. What is an employee discrimination or favoritism etc, all these scenarios are clearly explained with stories. Some though nut will take a call one day.

When Dell was ethical company ever anyway? Own by an id--t who never wrote a single piece of code in his life, does not understand a bit of information technology, an entrepreneur by luck and chance !!! Management milk him for their own gain and he used them to make $2 from $1. That equation won't hold for long. Most likely making $2 from $1 will fail.

That's a awfully rotten BU. Neopotism at the highest levels. It's a trend to higher a dork at senior position who just there for shining boss shoe. Some of them also takes a role of "Fun Commitee Manger" You would see meaningless email coming anytime any season. Some of them go out in school visit in the name of CSR. These are engineering graduates with 15/20 years of experience goes to school to teach english! Whom they are fooling around? Why don't they teach Math and Science if they really want to do CSR. Perhaps forgot what a Math and Science is and yes they higher from each other network. Won't last long... You can fool someone for sometime not forever.

In our team, all the managers hire the unqualified wives of the other managers in the team. When layoffs happen, the unqualified wives never seem to be impacted. Doesn’t seem right, but that’s what is happening.

Friends and families stick longer. Occassionally they hire someone who can do the job.
