I worked at Dell full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The people are fantastic and management allows you to run your business. With all the new acquisitions, I think the long-term future is bright for Dell if they can execute.

Cons

The perception of Dell in the market is that they are not an enterprise player. This is shame because they have incredible talent and great products. It's extremely hard for upward mobility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The strategy hasn't changed in the past 3-4 years and it isn't working.

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    not a bad bunch of people; the folks on the phone were OK to work with.
    Managers did their best, given the pressure.
    We had fun, sometimes, even.

    Cons

    I was not provided with training, past the first month, so my Windows Skills lapsed.
    My offers to help with their VOIP efforts went unnoticed.
    My pay never got over $25 per hour, even after 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide some support for workers.
    Show some compassion along with the Meritocracy.
    Training wouldn't hurt.

    - Only real growth is through acquisition, yet have failed a successfully integrating many companies they've acquired.
    - Evolving their business model to be more service oriented but slow to change
    - They don't like to reward over performance
    - Poor culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your growth strategy is invest in the technology you've acquired and don't stifle innovation with big company process.
