    I worked at Dell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Depth and breadth of technology; ability to move margin and take deals negative in order to gain top line revenue is still strong. The specialist organization is very talented although in some geographies recent reductions in force have spread individuals extremely thin. Once one gets to network across cross-functional teams there are significant resources one can bring to bear for sales campaigns.

    Cons

    Current management appears panicked by the continual downward spiral of the stock price. Consequently the pressure on the salesforce is focused on sales execution but also dilutes the efforts with a maniacal focus on attainment of sometimes spurious KPI's. This results in more time spent on activities aimed at hitting KPI scores rather than on successful salesmaking.

    Recent leadership changes in the Large Enterprise space resulted in a situation where salesmakers no longer know the Executive Leadership Team and the ELT does not know them, so Individual Contributors not only have no visibility up and down the management chain, they know that the ELT does not know them and consequently, the current thinking is, that the ELT cannot value them and their efforts. This also implies that upward mobility is fairly limited since a new management team was put in place along with the recent RIFs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider putting employees and customers first and share price at a distant third. This will, over time, result in a stronger workplace, greater employee loyalty, and ultimately a much stronger stock price.
