    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dell is aware of its weaknesses and is willing to put money behind ideas to improve. Fellow employees are committed to owning issues and resolving them. Customers come first and every effort is put into training employees to exhibit these qualities and rewarding them when they do.

    Cons

    While the people are Dell's strength, the processes are its weaknesses. The desire to find a better way leads to constant change and re-organization. This can be difficult for employees to navigate.

    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.
