Current Employee - Network Engineer in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Network Engineer in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Having worked here for over 10 years, I have been happy for the most part. Some of the pros include good pay, good benefits, and good career prospects in the organization.

Cons

Some of the issues I have had are due to the company being too big, where sometimes organizational direction is not very well communicated down the food chain.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Granted, you wont make as much as competitors, however with most positions you get to "leave" at the end of the day and not take your work home. Stick with the non-salary positions.

    Cons

    Some things are political. It seems there are "silly" policies in place which are brought in by 3rd parties, but this is normal for any large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees, Any idea to improve something should be passed up to the higher ups no matter what the lower level management thinks. Unconventional ways of thinking are often the key to staying ahead in this industry.

    Former Employee - Business Sales in Nashville, TN

    I worked at Dell full-time (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.
