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

Pros

The vision of the future that Michael Dell has been pursuing over the last 4 years or so is very compelling, and I think right on track. Benefits are pretty good and overall corporate systems are ok.

Cons

Little is done in communications from HQ to field offices other than reorgs, which seem to be annual at this point.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop reorganizing and sending out PR on executives to the employees. Dell sometimes seems like a career treadmill for MBAs instead of a technology company.

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dell is a good place of employee if you are young and energetic. Dell's culture and values evolve with the community and therefore keeps a nice balance when it comes to matters that are considered politically correct.

    Cons

    Sometimes the value of an employee is not measured by the heart, but by the raw numbers which I think can be shortsided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remeber that there are hearts and minds behind the numbers.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (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.
