    I have been working at Dell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have worked for Dell for 16 years in multiple locations around the world. I have been given fantastic opportunities for advancement and career development along the way which have kept me interested and energized. My management supports and invests in training and travel focused on staying abreast of emerging trends and capabilities. I maintain a very healthy work/life balance by putting boundaries up in my day / week / year that are reserved for personal time.

    Cons

    Yes, there are long hours and high expectations for delivering results - isn't this the case every where?

    I worked at Dell full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities in Career growth, good benefit with along with decent pay.

    Cons

    Has tools and policies set for employee but little bit lack of guiding individual especially for the new employee. Company is going through changes after it went private and most of US based work force have been laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We all understand that the company re-org does take place and it can not be avoided. However notifying individuals that tomorrow is your last day without any prior information or any pre-announcement was plain cold movement of the management. We all once worked very hard for the company and we deserve more that that. All of my US based team received same notification.
