    Pros

    Dell has wonderful talent and the opportunities are endless for those that are willing to invest and learn. Because of the great talent there are wonderful mentors everywhere.

    Cons

    Most things at Dell are guardrail to guardrail and it can be hard to see where the middle line should be. It can be easy to get caught up in the daily grind and lose focus on what's important.

    Advice to Management

    Dell is currently going through a wonderful transformation from a hardware company to a solutions company. I believe "Who Moved My Cheese” comes into play with the current situation but few have found it. In times when massive change occurs quickly there are key pillars that keep your people working harder. Clear, open and honest communication, Ethics and culture, measurements or metrics that truly align the business goals, Customer’s needs, and the future vision. .


  2. Poor leadership is causing this ship to go down

    Pros

    Location - Austin is a great city to live in
    Salary - Is not too bad versus cost of living (something to do with no state tax I guess)
    Work-life balance - working hours were not taxing

    Cons

    Low Morale - regular layoffs and bad performance have reduced the employee morale to zilch. No one takes pride in working for Dell
    Bad Management - most of the middle management has survived simply because they've managed to suck up to seniors, without any regard to their performance or accountability
    Leadership - None of the senior leadership have any idea what to do given the current industry dynamics
    Lack of innovation- Dell made its name by selling stuff cheaper, which in effect, was innovation in supply chain. Nothing of that sort happens anymore. They cut most of their Product Group so no innovation there either. And they come up with lousy products which are obsolete even before they hit the market.
    Bad bosses - I had 2 really bad ones, although you do see good managers now and then
