Great Company, very good work life balance, very employee friendly.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Remote, OR

I worked at Dell as a contractor for less than a year

Prosflex time, remote work ability for some positions. the company really cares about employees.

Consreally none that I can think of. they are private now, so they should become even better if they do what can be done at this time going forward.

Advice to Senior Managementpromote those who have done the jobs they supervise, and are the best in those jobs while in them - before they go into management. that way you have the best talent, when they are management ready, in management. that's across the board for all companies as advice.

Awesome Development Opportunities

Accounting Intern (Former Employee)

I worked at Dell as an intern for less than a year

ProsDevelopment Opportunities: The Accounting Development Program (ADP), the full-time development program that accounting internships feed into is a great opportunity to gain a breadth of accounting experience without having to go work for a public accounting firm first.

Networking: Networking is highly encouraged, even as an intern. Full-time employees in a variety of roles and positions were willing to give of their time to give context to the different areas of finance, accounting, and the company in general.

ConsSystems: The systems in use at Dell are very complex, and many of them are either home-grown or were brought in as stop-gap solutions (they haven't been improved as the company has expanded). As a result, there is sometimes a lot of manual work that must be performed only because the systems have interfacing issues.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in front-end solutions that will make the work performed more efficient rather than relying on back-room work addressing issues that could have been prevented with less cost and time.

Enjoyable Company

Business Systems Senior Advisor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dell full-time

ProsThe company is very results oriented, and they focus on encouraging career growth. I have seen poor managers strategically weeded out of management and placed into individual contributor roles in which they begin to excel. I enjoy being part of an organization in which your value is rewarded and opportunities are available.

ConsAs with any large company, it is difficult to get noticed from higher level managers. The company is still in a highly transitional phase, with Michael Dell taking the company private... there is a lot of promise, but still a bit of mystery.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on improving internal architecture within data centers. Continue to purge poor performing managers from the organization... this will continue to drive more results with better managers in the driver's seats.

Great company for a balanced and stable career!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dell full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat culture that cares about people, community, and work life balance. Leaders promote from within, and support career mobility. I thoroughly enjoy the ability to work from home, yet I still maintain a connection with my colleagues virtually.

ConsSometimes it can be hard to get your foot in the door or find the next career opporutnity internally. you have to really set yourself apart from others, and network from within.But for the right skills sets the opportunities are plentiful.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm thankful to Michael Dell for being bullish about the future of Dell. He believes in the success potential for this company and it energizes the rest of us to keep up the good work.
