Current Employee - SaaS/Cloud L&D Consultant in Round Rock, TX

I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Work flexibility and work/life balance; very supportive of remotely working
Constantly learning
Exciting emerging technologies
Promotion of Community Involvement both in time and financial resources
Extremely challenging; I've never been bored a minute

Cons

Leadership is overall weak. There are some good managers and executives but are exceptions, not the rule
Lots of reorganization and layoffs; the decisions are made by people who have no idea how staff executes and knowledge of talent capability.
There is great need of improvement on how leadership manage parts of the business that aree under-performing.
Cost containment has created cumbersome bureaucratic processes that doesn't really save in the long run. Costs are shifted instead of reduced due to poor processes.
Highly political

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All managers need to read The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni. Dell is overall smart but unhealthy. You will have to work very hard to improve health in the company.

Meritocracy is outdated. If you want to be innovative, start with how you motivate and develop a high-performing workforce.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Round Rock, TX

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large company provides a great resume builder for those early in their career. Experience working with large companies can be very valuable. Good training and good resources for new hires provides a solid roadmap for what is expected.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is overwhelming, and salaries are uncompetitive relative to others in the field. Management is often typical of middle management stereotypes, and advancement opportunities are limited and more dependent upon "right place, right time" than actual merit.

    Management is always changing its mind on what's important.

    Stop the reorgs. Buy a real website backend.
