    Pros

    Great people, good work ethic, and flexible work environment, fast pace in terms of day to day operations and strategic initiatives.

    Cons

    Top leadership sometimes lacks vision in certain business units and drives high amounts of unnecessary churn. Tremendous amounts of internal change which is good but can be a slippery slope if you don't invest in resources and make an effort to reward those carrying the burden.

    A lot of stress put on the sales with extra non sales related tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the employees.

    Pros

    the pay is great for the amount of effort. You sell to customers who are already using the product. Casual environment. Lots of growth potential outside of the office.

    Cons

    Blackout days for PTO. You also have to stay late those days. Micromanagement galore. I heard the senior manager say "I should have micromanaged more."

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking down at your employees. Find better ways of motivating and promote better people.

    Pros

    They do respect the work/life balance.
    Dell is shifting into a bigger software company. If you are a software engineer, there is no shortage of cool challenges to work on.
    I feel that compensation is good.

    Cons

    Some software teams are a little bit silo'd. You have to make an active ongoing effort to connect with other teams outside of your own to get traction. Not necessarily a con, just understand this current dynamic.
    Offices feel a bit dated.

    Advice to Management

    Create new working spaces for software engineers to work in. Inspiring environments with nice views definitely help with a setting of getting great work done.
    Find ways to get the right software teams to talk to each other. Teams that are located around the country are a bit hard to connect with in terms of communication. Maybe video conferences might alleviate this.
