    I have been working at Dell full-time

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Dell is working for a company led by the founder, who is a visionary leader and the CEO. The company has great executive leadership focused on delivering world class products and services to their customers. Dell also encourages employees to have work-life balance.

    Cons

    The downside of working for Dell is that the culture is not too great. Function departments don't work together for the good of the company. Employees are not well taken care of in terms of opportunities for promotion and advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Executive management should be engaged and following through with middle management in creating the culture and company they envision.
