    Dell employees leaving in masses over new comp plan

    The new comp "plan" is likely the last straw. The small biz people were told straight out "this is designed to put more money toward the company".

    The financing company is running Dell now. That is the death knell. It may take a while, but you can mark this as the last nail in Dell's coffin.

    Great for my company, as we are going to be hiring a few more people. Cherry picking from Dell is good. Dell is GREAT at laying off their best and brightest. It just takes about 3 months for them to shake off the effects of working in Dell Hell.

      I can see exactly what you are talking about. You get good talent, but they are shell shocked. It takes a little bit of time for the cynicism to fade.

      The good talent isn't prized by Dell's highly political managers. Often times they try to get the best talent to leave.

    • "Dell Hell" is an appropriate description. One of the worst parts of the Dell corporate hierarchy is the middle to upper levels of the 700 or so remaining executives where incompetence is really abundant.

      The Dell new executive training process (usually held at an offsite downtown Round Rock location) is really awful as well. They all pretend it's Dell circa 1999, with unlimited growth opportunity, and a wonderfully respected global brand.

      No one acknowledges the enormous business model problems, the tarnished corporate image, and deep senior executive leadership void (yes, Mike, Don, Steve, Mark, etc.) that continues to plague the company. Oh, and did I mention the Super Bowl ad was a total waste and the stock's falling like a Round Rock?

    • The new comp "plan" is likely the last straw. The small biz people were told straight out "this is designed to put more money toward the company".

      No the last straw probably came yesterday when DELL announced the termination of their ESPP.

    • What company do you work for?
