I worked at Dell

Pros

90+ % of fellow employees were positive to work with. Managers I had were usually qualified and accommodating and to work/life balance issues. Company has many good programs in place to make it more than just a job.

Cons

The company is in such a competitive industry, changing it's focus away from hardware is very difficult. In the conflict between Customer Experience and Cost, the focus on cost is sometimes over emphasized.

    I have been working at Dell full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    So-so health benefits
    Advancement potential
    Organizational structure
    Large accounts with diverse job opportunities
    Remote work from home is possible

    Cons

    Disorganized, ineffective management
    Too much focus on offshore activities and offshore business model
    Staff turnover is very high, likely to translate into loss of some major accounts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your rush to embrace the WIPRO model by hiring their execs continues to alienate your customers and employees. If you continue, you will be successful at destroying what once was a quality service organization - Perot Systems

    I worked at Dell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Can move relatively easily across functional organizations
    Meritocracy is largely there
    Decent execution for a company this size
    Can effect change if you are motivated

    Cons

    Many top and seasoned performers have left
    Culture was damaged through constant shift of jobs to lowest cost countries
    Executive leadership positions were given to outsiders for many years
    Constant reorganizations
    Core competencies were outsourced long ago
    Guardrail to guardrail management on a monthly, weekly, and daily basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take on fast follower mentality of the 90s as company is at critical point
