I have been working at Dell full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great vision. Good execution. Hard working people.

Cons

Some inefficiencies exist. Some senior managers manage up and pad everything, delaying unnecessarily some projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote nimbleness. Smaller companies with fewer resources are able to bring to market more features, products and are able to do more. Work on cutting the red tape and managing up.

    good place to work

    Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Round Rock, TX
    Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Round Rock, TX

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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and relatively laid-back at lower levels. Lots of opportunity to develop innovative solutions to problems. Large opportunity to take on more responsibilities.

    Cons

    Low pay. Excessive barriers to information and red tape. Large disconnect between high-level management and lower-level workers. Excessive departmental interdependence, leading to frequent delays in projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Senior Management – Be more open to suggestions from lower-level employees as to how day-to-day activities can be more productive. Allow departments greater autonomy with regards to access to information.

    A great place to work if you like having your job offshored to India

    I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You do get paid.
    Work from home.

    Cons

    Seniority and experience means nothing here anymore as it is now owned and operated by India.
    Your past achievements at the company mean nothing to anyone and you WILL be treated like a child.
    If you like working 60-90 hours a week then this is the place for you.
    The 10, 13, 18 years of service and the millions you’ve personally saved with your direct efforts alone means nothing to anyone and you should not expect recognition or monetary compensation as a result.
    Your manager is 99% likely to be in India now and there will be little to no communication with that person.
    Your Indian “co-workers” (oxymoron) will:
    a. Take credit for your work.
    b. Bad mouth and make false claims against you to management throughout the year to ensure their promotion/raise over you.
    c. Use titles they haven’t earned like “senior” and “team lead”.
    d. Be ignorant of basic software concepts and incapable of delegating work appropriately.
    e. Eventually take your job through offshoring.
    If you enjoy back handed comments, people stabbing you in the face and in the back at the same time, then this is the place for you.
    If you enjoy devoting yourself for 13+ years to a company only to have them slap you in the face with false claims so that they can legally fire you and move your job to India then this is the place for you.
    To top off the experience you’re guaranteed to be fired or downsized by an Indian you’ve never met working in the US under HR.
