    Pros

    Extremely talented team of people I work with and Dell compensates the talent with a great salary

    Cons

    Separation between us and the corporate strategies/benefits. We were one of the many companies acquired by Dell. I have no doubt that things will iron out as time allows.

    Advice to Management

    I am unaware of Dell's O/H cost structure but it seems that with my 5 years with Dell/Current customer, Dell can't seem to win a bid if their life depended on it. Yes they have great talented people and as usual tends to cost a premium to keep them which Dell attempts to do. Unfortunately not all customers feel the same as Dell and simply awards the lowest or near lowest bidder. I guess the customer needs to learn what quality vs. quantity means.

  2. Challenging work environment with very smart colleges

    Pros

    Dell values contribution over credentials, so if you are ready to roll up your sleeves and work then you will be valued and have opportunities to grow and advance your career.

    Cons

    Dell is a meritocracy, if you do not contribute or add value then you are not going to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value the contributions of individual contributors and spend some more money on top of the funnel marketing.
