Current Employee - Senior Advisor in Round Rock, TX

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

Pros

With the right manager, you'll be given opportunities to learn and grow
Plenty of opportunity to establish processes and automation
Annual bonuses can add up to a lot (in a good year)

Cons

Review process suffers from the same problem as in most big organizations: stack ranking (or forced distribution)
Salary increases are miniscule

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many managers (project, program, product, marketing), not enough doers.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Company still has potential, solid technology, dynamic environment, opportunity to make a difference

    Cons

    Too much noise in the system, too many distractions, has forgotten how to do the fundamentals well, lost identity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rationalizing away reality, invest in client SW and differentiation

    Former Employee - Product Management in Austin, TX

    I worked at Dell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave your software aquisions alone.
