    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 Management

    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

    Work with a great team, professional and years of experience. Enjoy selling the Dell enterprise portfolio of solutions to our customers and enabling our VARs.
    Good balance of work/life and manageable travel within selling territory.

    Cons

    Navigating the bureaucracy of a large company. Reporting to a primary manager with "dotted-lines" to other managers can be a challenge.
