Good company, but needs to focus on rewarding hardwork instead of maintaining profitability.

Account Executive (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsCareer Advancement is encouraged from all levels of the company. Upper management runs a glass house to ensure that all can see the operations of the company. Communication is good.

ConsWork life balance is somewhat ignored. Pay for lower level jobs not quite up to market standards. Company has reduced benefits with changing it's sales compensation structure. Increased the cost of health insurance, took away employee stock plan.

Current market conditions are making it tough on Dell right now. Company recently announced 8000 layoffs globally. Considering it is primarily a commodities company, the current economic situation may not pose well for Dell.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook to rewarding employees for their success. Need to reevaluate sales quotas to ensure they are achievable and inline with market growth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Dell


    Pros: It used to be a great place to work. As previous comments have said, there were lots of reasons to be here 9 to 10… Cons: Because of the downsizing and lack of growth there is little to no advancement opportunities.
