Former Employee - Sales Engineer in Oshkosh, WI

Pros

Very well compensated outside sales force
No micromanagement
Middle mgmt generally shields you from a lot of the BS
Decent work/life balance

Cons

Extremely reactive to external forces - market trends, company financials, etc.
Constant change -- Every Half (cannot stress this one enough)
Can't innovate and acquire at the same time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't shuffle the deck every single time someone at the VP level changes jobs or leaves. It's ridiculous how little consistency there is in leadership under MSD.

    Pros

    Dell is what you want to make out of it. If you want to sit around and do the minimum, do it! If you don't want to come in to the office, do it! If you want to exceed, you need to build a network of people around you, who can help you go where you need to go. It's all about the connections.

    Cons

    No structure. You had to figure out what to do with the given assignment yourself. There was little to no guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to see more structured programs, like rotational marketing program that you have.
