Pros

good potential if executed properly, great acquisitions, decent vision, great work life balance

Cons

very poor execution, extreme CYA attitude, too much fat for the results delivered, delivery driven culture which results in a lack of innovation, product managers not empowered enough to make product/design decisions, bureaucracy at every level, what should take 1 week to get done takes 2-3 months to get done, process overkill, several folks have made a career at Dell by not doing anything constructive. middle mgmt bloated, resulting in poor career growth opportunities

Advice to Management

Innovate, innovate, innovate. put 3% of rev towards R&D, let product team make product decisions, focus on how to make great things and revenue will come

    Pros

    I've been sitting here for 10 min and the only thing I can think of is that sometimes they let me leave.

    Cons

    No opportunity to move up, constantly involuntarily shifted due to outsourcing, pay is inconsistent with work assigned, benefits are ok at best, mandatory overtime on a very regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    If your employee base isn't happy, your business won't be happy. Listen to the people who do the work if you want to improve how it's done. There is nothing wrong with asking the opinions of those most closely effected.
