    Pros

    Great senior management. Excellent vision.

    Cons

    Middle management. Inner circles. Lots of dead wood at Executive Director level.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead wood. Ask everyone to show what their true contribution to Dell is.

    Pros

    Full of smart, hard working people from the PC business.

    Cons

    Stubborn, old and archaic thinking. You'll be crunching numbers and doing presentations for endless (aimless?) exercises from higher ups, regardless of seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Use the vast data you have to move forward, not to secure your job into another department.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, and flexible schedule

    Cons

    Every time you hit your quota, they raise it. There is no such thing as job security. The minute you don't hit your number they threaten to fire you. Very stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to listen to employees ideas, especially if they work and make them more productive.

    Pros

    Job security, with high floor, and some solid products to sell on the security side. Great place to get introduced to the IT world. Nice to have a gym on site.

    Cons

    Account set can dictate short term success. Job can be dependent on overlays that are slow and lack sense of urgency. Middle management can go "guardrail to guardrail" and overreact.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough accountability by everyone from sales maker to middle management to senior management. Focus more on hiring cerebral workforce not just people that interview well.

    Pros

    Flexibility, great work atmosphere, great benefits. Opportunity to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Pay, Typical corporate America red tape, broken internal process, internal conflict, too many tools, not enough marketing support for the brand

    Advice to Management

    If you would like to keep great professionals you should consider higher pay or annual merits. Holding people for 3 years without a raise is not competitive with current job market.
