Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Austin, TX

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Great people but when they ask if you are comfortable with ambiguity, you better believe it.

    The people make the job enjoyable. The chaotic culture provides opportunity to behave like an entrepreneur in a corporate environment.
