I worked at Dell

Pros

You have a somewhat standard industry wage, not too good, not too great. You do get somewhat to choose your hours, that depends on your operation. Some of the people you work with are friendly and nice, but some of them can also be jerks. You can surf the Internet at work. Some supervisors are friendly and helpful. You get a MSDN subscription as a technician with Dell.

Cons

Not very stable, was laid off after a year of service. In fact, the whole location was laid off. Some supervisors have little or no business being supervisors. No real training other than Dell specifics, which is pretty useless for elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop laying off those competent people that work for you. Your greediness is finally catching up to you.

    Pros

    Ability to manage work/life balance. clear about what you need to do and how you will be compensated. With the right direct managers you get a chance to manage work and private life well, but especially with internal functions this is a lot harder. However they do give you a very good idea of what you need to achieve per quarter and how you will be rewarded. Good results are well rewarded, but there is always a lot of pressure to achieve your results.
    Furthermore there is a terrible admin/reporting load, which i have not seen in any of my previous employers.

    Cons

    No clear focused long term strategy, too quarterly/weekly driven. Too much focus on short term results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to a long term strategy and stick to it!

    Great place to work if you like a really fast paced environment. You will not be bored.

    Pros

    If you like a fast paced environment is the place to be, and real effort is made to make you feel part of a team, and to do extra activites that really create that sense of comradery.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not always easily managed there due to fast made decisions that trickle down to front line employees too fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.. try to mitigate the issues with work life balance.
