    Compassionate but challenging

    Tier II Help Desk Technician (Former Employee) Nashville, TN

    ProsPromotions are plentiful for those with the skills and drive to succeed. The management staff care about their employees on a personal level, and still call me to this day to check in on me since I was forced to leave due to a medical condition. It's a fun place to work and very accepting of individuality and encouraging of non-conformist approaches that increase efficiency and accuracy.

    ConsEmployees who become complacent can drag down other employees with potential, and there tends to be a huge and unfounded paranoia of unfair business practices. Rest assured, those who actually put in the effort are handsomely rewarded. This is not a company where you can "do your time" and expect automatic reward, and many employees get miffed at that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCull the negative nannies if at all possible.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best experience hands down!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you are proactive, passionate, and intelligent then Dell is a great company to work for! I met some of the best professionals in the industry at Dell. People are smart yet generous in sharing their time and information. You can really craft out your own career at Dell.

    ConsIf Dell execute on the new company strategy quickly then there is no reason why the company cannot be a first class enterprise solutions/services company.

    Great company

    Business Systems Advisor (Current Employee) Round Rock, TX

    ProsPromotes a collaborative work environment and work/life balance. Many employees work from home part of the week and in the office for the rest of the week. Opportunity to promote from within.

    ConsFast changing goals and objectives - must be able to balance with a positive attitude. Lots of meetings. New team members need to be able to jump right in and learn quickly.
