* 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 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 - Peripherals Brand Manager in Round Rock, TX

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

    Pros

    Met some really nice people and made good contacts. Dell was nt that bad of a place to work. I was there for a long time and learned a lot. I had a good run and hope the best for the company and its employees in the future.

    Cons

    Its a big company so it does have its fair share of politics and a good old boy network..
    Dealing with Ambiguity. There is a lot of ambiguity with every job that I had there and not much leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People don't leave companies, they leave managers.
