    I have been working at Dell as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    You think this should more obvious to all (it wasn't to me at first) but you HAVE TO MEET YOUR DEADLINES. Honestly, that is all that they care about. They don't care about a new sexy way of doing things. Just put your head down and bust through. If you gotta do something manually, then friggin' do it.

    Cons

    As remote, communication was a huge obstacle. So being available (IM, texting, etc.) helps out a lot.

    I worked at Dell as an intern

    Pros

    The project you will be working on is both useful and challenging. You will always have something to do, but not too much that will overwhelm you. The organized intern events are also lots of fun.

    Cons

    The communication from executives is somewhat lacking.
