Thread regarding Dell Inc. layoffs

What's the point of our HR?

I'm just wondering if there is any actual use from it? We have a manager who was reported at least three separate times by different employees for behavioral issues and somehow he is still here. There was no follow up (at least none that I know of) and absolutely nothing happened to him. He was not even reprimanded.

So I ask again, what is the point of our HR?

HR is useless in NDC, seriously even after talking to him, political QA guy who back stabbed manager is more powerful then M. Dell. All directors and developers were on his side, bribery and drinks.

HR L*** lol and he reveled about you.

HR works for the company not the employee. HR's role is to protect the company. You people need to understand this , its so funny people thinking HR is someone looking out for the employee LOL

HR staff is, in general, like any other staff. They ignore problems and wait until it goes away. Just like their managers do.

Actually supported layoff practice in HR. It is a very corrupted deparment with incompetent leadership and putting the most technical and mentally challenged people in control.

HR is there to protect the company and managers (in that order) from doing something stupid that will get them sued and/or damage the companies reputation in the eyes of the customer. They make sure that the company toes the line as far as government mandates to protect minorities, and show the managers/company how many people than can legally lay off or treat badly without getting nailed by the government. They DO NOT represent the employees. Employees are just the headache they have to deal with to line the companies and senior executives pockets. I've personally had two instances, one at Dell and the other at another lage company, where I was managing a group, and HR came to me to let me know that I had an employee that was complaining about me, and to find a reason to terminate these employees before they caused more trouble within the groups I was managing. I fired both for minor infractions, and then helped the companies HR departments to deny unemployment benefits. THat is typical HR behavior.

HR's role is to protect the company first and the manager second. The employee doesn't even factor in.

HR has SOPs that favors the company, not you. And while some are valid hopelessly good for nothing, they are not your mommy or daddy for you to ask for all kinds of help for your homework and your boo boos. Browse the intranet for once you lazy dumb technologically challenged employees.

@XgZpKPq-1ili, they will never tell you about this. The best person who might tell , at least how far you are to the top of your grade, is your manager. But to get that information you need to be a very trustful person...

Only three times? I heard it takes 10 reports in order for a review to happen

HR at Dell is useless. I asked about the salary bands and they would not give me any information and told me to talk to my manager. I've inquired about other things but simply wasted my time. I guess they're there to facilitate the layoffs.

I have been around a long time in the industry to realize never to approach HR against your manager, never seen it work for anyone, on the contrary, it creates bigger problems. As a matter of fact, I have left Dell, the reason was my manager. He created so many issues that I was left with no choice, but to depart. I discussed the situation with another manager in Dell (different group and location), who advised me to approach HR, however, I chose to leave for a better work environment elsewhere.

In a company the size of Dell, HR's purpose is to protect the company from lawsuits. Period, end of story.

You are not following the book... Don't call HR for anything. If you have a claim about your manager behavior go ethics!

in my experience HR is there to say that we have one; they are staffed by interns and paper pushers, whatever you do unless you want to be RIF'ed, DO NOT EVER make contact with them.
