Pros

Happy work environment. The people and the customers actually make it worth driving into work!

Cons

The fact it's closing at the end of July. I would have been able to see myself moving up the ladder in that building

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't close! LOL. but seriously, listen to your agents strengths

    I have been working at Dell

    Pros

    At Dell, we often used a term called "Meritocracy"; which simply means if you perform, you reap the rewards. The last five years at Dell have certainly proven this to be true for me! Every ounce of effort put in by me at Dell has been repayed to me in various forms. I have seen it in the form of a high performance rating, which translates into several benefits, including a significant compensation hike and a substantial bonus. I have seen it through timely and regular promotions, and also by being provided with opportunities for lateral movements within the organization to different roles. Over the years, I have been allotted additional responsibilities and my scope of work has steadily increased to encompass more important duties. This has enabled me to make a difference in the work place, hence giving me immense job satisfaction. I have also been appreciated by Dell in the form of the occasional rewards and recognitions, the most memorable of them was being presented with a distinction for excellent performance by the CEO of the company himself.

    Cons

    Dell's work environment is extremely dynamic, hence making it very exciting and interesting to work in such a Company. One feels motivated and is constantly on their toes dealing with the various challenges thrown at them. However, this has proven to be a downside for Dell as well, where those unable to work in a fast-paced environment become opposed to the changes and thereby make it difficult for updates to productively flow through the Organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though there is recognition and feedback in Dell, the frequency and continuation of these is very poor. A lot of new and refreshing programs are rolled out, but they loose the hype and momentum quickly. This sometimes leaves a feeling of low morale with employees. Feedback is provided on an ongoing basis by Managers to the Entry-level Employees. However, Managers themselves are lacking the regular support and guidance from the Senior Management. Having been a Manager at Dell for 3 years, I have seen action being taken by the Management for my personal development, but this still has a long way to go in terms of its relevance and effectiveness. Managers need more direction from the Senior Management on how to successfully scale up to their levels.

    I have been working at Dell

    Pros

    The actual work is very enjoyable and varied. The opportunities to gain experience are huge - If you can survive here with the pace and speed of change , other companies are a walk in the park.

    Cons

    Short-sightedness , overly focussed on next quarters results. Short term cost savings to hit a number versus long term investment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the true cost opportunies and do not make rash , short term decisions
