    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

    "Great" benefits, nothing more, nothing less than fair market value salary. the oppertunity to grow and progress with Dell NATIONALLY, if you want to stay in OKC, you will not see a benefit here, this position is aimed at driven individuals.

    Cons

    This is corporate America here, and in Oklahoma. If you aren't a bible thumping nut, you will need to be strategic and/or silent. God loves Oklahoma.

    Advice to Management

    Focusing on numbers= disconnect, preaching "knowing your business" goes both ways. Know your employees, know their territories, their struggles, not just their metrics.....ahhemm(Brian Cash)
