I worked at Dell full-time (More than a year)

Pros

* Very generous offer and paid to move me and my family from California to Austin Texas. * The people in my group were smart, hard-working, and professional. * Starbucks in the cafe and ATM in the lobby. * Facilities were always clean and tidy. * Security is very polite, professional, and on the ball. * Shipping 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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Compensation was very good along with working side by side with some great folks

    Cons

    Management was very political on the lower levels and looked for ways to get rid of employees they did not like or who would not play by their rules.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to manage the lower levels better.
