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

Pros

Dell has programs to ensure work/life balance is satisfied like most other large corporations do. I was in marketing, and the workload can be hectic at times, but results from your impact tend to be rewarding. Dell, in practice, is evolving from a hardware pusher with a transactional workforce to a solution provider with a consultative approach.

Cons

Dell has a lot of lifers, and you'll find that they have not evolved their thinking with the company topline messaging. Being in software at Dell has its challenges because culturally, hardware still rules. HW is low margin with lots of overhead, and the culture needs to change to put SW and services on top.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dell is evolving, and middle management needs to really foster that transition to solution-selling. Help employees move to their next spot in a constructive environment conducive to learning.

    Pros

    Plenty of room for growth, most people are smart and willing to help, great work life balance

    Cons

    Disorganized at times- i think that is what happens at such a large compant. Leadership does seem to becoming more alligned.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for anyone in high-tech sales. Work hard, and you will go far.

    Cons

    Typical things you'd expect from a very large company - red tape, slow-moving HR, politics, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take mundane tasks off the plate of the sales team and actually let them SELL.
