Michael DELL has come back with a bang, just a few short days after returning as CEO of DELL (www.dell.ie) he has told workers that cutbacks are on their way. Michael Dell set-up the company with just $1,000 in 1984 and his return is set to bring some major changes.
On Friday last a company email was sent declaring that bonuses for 2006 have been cancelled (great eh ?) and that the numbers of managers will be reduced throughout 2007. DELL is desperately trying to regain the number 1 position in the PC market after being nudged out by Hewlett Packard last year.
So now we are wondering what this means for DELL in Limerick, Bray & Dublin ? Will these cut backs effect their Irish operations ? Is 2007 going to continue with announcements of more Irish redundancies ??? Fingers crossed that we are wrong on this one.
