Dell is a great company to work for but is too large for its own good

Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Nashville, TN

I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great company to start off a career, very flexible with regard to schedule and remote opportunities

Cons

Dell is constantly re-organizing, segmented, merging, acquiring, hiring and laying off. Always know your value and be able to articulate it very well and without notice

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage more communication between departments and leaders

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

    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.

    I worked at Dell as an intern (less than an year)

    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.
