Thread regarding Dell Inc. layoffs

Dell has no good options left

The bonus comes out the end of the month. Enjoy it, and then start to look for a job. Dell has no options left other than selling off pieces of the business and doing massive layoffs. I worked for Dell for 17 years, before leaving in 2015. During that time I saw no change in their business model, which was to wait for someone else to come up with a new idea and then try to copy it, while spending almost nothing on R&D that would help the company. The only thing that has been successful is there high end monitors which they do not design, and desktop PC's (which they also do not design) and there are no margins on the sale of these. Their main claim to fame is their ability to buy up companies and then run them into the ground before selling them for pennies on the dollar due to the lack of R&D spending. I don't quite understand why anyone stays at Dell unless they have zero talent and have no options to go to work for a real Hi-Tech company.

I joined DellEMC and within 5 months , they handed over our team to another company and gave us option either to stay or leave. I never seen any company treat people so poorly. They never spend anything on research . Now they are hoping the new guys spend some money and resuscitate the product. I should have never joined Dell in first place. The worst place I have seen in my 18 years of experience

Dell is a pretty decent company (as a whole) to work for. The saying "Dell is the best 1st and 3rd job you'll ever have" is the most accurate description I was ever told. I learned a lot from working there, but just as others have described, the most important has been the ability to recognize poor leadership and move on before being dragged down.

Stop seeing layoffs as an end, but rather a beginning to something better. If you aren't updating your resume every quarter, then you aren't really evaluating yourself for what you are do and what are worth.

Dell has some pretty good stuff going on for people managers. Just don't end up being the work mule or solutionist to the managers. Dell only cares about them not you or your talent.

Odd. I joined in 2015 and it has been a great experience working for Dell. The merger has driven a lot of opportunity and growth. I personally, have been doing well with my career at the company. I am tied to the Sales Organization though. If you are in the Product groups I can understand the frustration. The company needs to continue to unify and simplify the portfolio. Unfortunately I know that will impact jobs. But to say that Dell is on the down swing is absurd.

Dell has it's best days ahead and a very sound plan for how customers will engage from end to end, cloud to compute. That's great for the leaders, but to the staff that just means far higher targets and impossible pay plans. Dell's biggest demotivator is the crippling targets and low salaries.

Good grief @YbBlhYa you have no f'ing idea. You were kicked out in 2015, well before the Dell EMC merger. Kicked out because you were c-ap at your job. In fact, DT is doing much better probably because you were kicked out.

Your post is so ill informed and inaccurate, I simply wouldn't have time to spend correcting you, you troll. Go back twiddling you thumbs and thinking of even more trash to say about a former employer that provided a living for you and put food on the table for your family.

There are many incompetent managers within our org, all the smart ones are gone.

Benefits, pay, and the people I work with kept me there. Sadly, I got a new manager and he was by far the worst I have ever had. Completely incompetent and believes he knows everything... doesn’t like to be challenged with different thinking. Unfortunately, now I’m leaving. Until him, I had a great team.
