Career growth opportunities are great, but tenure and success don't equate to job security

I worked at Dell full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great entry-level salary, and opportunity for promotion if you're careful about directing your own internal career progression.

Cons

The more your target compensation increases, the harder it becomes to consistently attain quota. Hard to know which are the right moves and get the timing right.

Felt very much like just another cog in the corporate machine. People get lost in the equation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Meritocracy should not be just about who landed a lucky big deal this quarter. Please make some effort to recognize consistent performers and high NPS scores. They are really more critical to Dell's long-term success.

    I have been working at Dell full-time for more than a 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.

    I worked at Dell full-time for 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.
