As a Dell employee, it is a little too early to tell if there will be any layoffs. As a public company, there were always reductions in force to decrease the operational costs to offset revenue loss. However, Dell employees live in areas all over Austin. We are hardly concentrated in Round Rock. Austin has constantly been one of the best economies in the country during this challenging economic time due to the diversity. Additionally, Dell employees have a pretty high skillset that allows them to be very marketable all over the country including Austin. That is one of the best parts of working within Dell is keeping ones resume relevant and knowing how to market ones skillsets.

Going private does not mean they will necessarily be laying off people. Dell has been through a lot of hard times honestly I don't see that changing anytime soon. Whether they will be laying off additional people is anybodies guess though.
