    I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Benefits
    Employee programs (tuition reimbursement, adoption assistance, etc.)

    Cons

    Little room for advancement
    Constant re-org and WFR
    Little job security

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Service will decline if you outsource too many positions.
    President of services is interviewing with other companies. Does that not conflict with the 'get on board with Dell' mentality?

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

    Pros

    The people that work for me and work with me are great. They have a great remote work program. Compensation is decent.

    Cons

    The transformation that this company is going through will not leave very many positions in the US. Very little guidance from above when it comes to company direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your people informed with real information and don't blow smoke.

    Pros

    End to End Solutions, Dell has some of the best solutions in the market place.

    Cons

    Too much overlay within organizations. Leadership is questionable. Going Private has led folks to watch their backs and is becoming very cut-throat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent message of direction. Many organizations within the company have not a clue on where Dell is headed.
    Dell's culture really needs a facelift.

    Pros

    Competitive salaries comparable to other similar employers
    OK benefits comparable to other similar employers
    Global employer with opportunities abroad
    Privatization represents a new opportunity to invigorate Dell

    Cons

    Constant change and reorganization
    Poor Human Resources support
    Poor corporate strategy
    Poor overall culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on putting people first and the business will thrive. Dell has been going through significant re-organization over the past three years in response to poor market performance in their hardware division. While it's not easy to restructure the company and make staffing changes, Dell has handled most of these people changes in a haphazard way. Please learn to be smart about retaining top talent.
