Pros

Lots of $$$
HW cash cow supports failed SAAS programs

Dell can not build a SAAS offer, and bring it to market.
Aquired several good companies, and ran them into the ground.

Advice to Management

Leave your software aquisions alone.

    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.
