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

    Pros

    Great career development and career path options. Dynamic, exciting work environment. Solid leadership who communicates frequently and effectively. Great people to work with. Excellent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Most managers are great. Some, however are not! Your team will only be as good as it's leadership...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage managers to frequently reach out to their employees and to put emphasis on being a coach and not a task-master...the results will be far greater!

    Pros

    Not too much of work pressure. Balanced professional and personal life.

    Cons

    No challenges. Company doesn't have long term visibility. The management is not good. They don't rate people with their deliverables. but how social or close a person is to the manager. The appraisal system sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should consolidate their knowledge, IP and products, instead of expanding their business.

    I worked at Dell as an intern

    Pros

    I worked in GSO. The team really respected work/life balance. Overall, the internship program has a lot to offer in terms of activities, training, and networking opportunities.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of reorganizing of the departments, making it risky for full time employment

    Pros

    The ethics, they treat their employees excellent.

    Do more team building activities. Promote from with in to match outsourcing strategies, if your employees don't feel they will be promoted you will lose top talent to competitors.
