    * Security is very polite, professional, and on the ball.

    Cons

    * On-boarding procedures are terrible. Sink or swim basically, your on your own.
    * Very political and unrewarding
    * Sr. Managers, Directors anyone managing people should all have proper management training.
    * People Managers are unethical and don't even know their being that way.
    * Some systems are anarchic and ways of thinking.
    * Don't even get me started on the bluppers on HR's part.
    * Difficult to find parking
    * No coffee in the kitchen, just a microwave and soda vending machine

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a required management training class "2 weeks" in person class to train people managers the Dos and Don't, etc. Fix the on-boarding experience. Every person I spoke with all said it takes 3-6 months just to figure out whats going on. Need some kind of training.

    Current Employee - Marketing Director in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Marketing Director in San Jose, CA

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

    Pros

    Consumer facing company, Michael is an inspiring leader. Culture of doing what's right for the customer.

    Cons

    Hurry up and wait. Decisions constantly revisited. Big organization with too many people who want to input on a decision. Flat organization means little opportunity for advancement. Executive Director at Dell is like a VP at any other large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out the processes and make decisions faster. Constantly late to market with underwhelming products. Cost structure of business makes most consumer products unprofitable.

    Doesn't Recommend
