Pros

The benefit plan is really good. You get about 6 weeks of vacation right off the bat, which is great. This is also a good resume builder.

Cons

VERY stressful environment. Even if you hit your goal, there is always something you need to work on. They make it very tough to hit goals as well as get all of the bonuses that are available. As soon as you consistently find a way to hit the goals, they change the rules of the game to make it more difficult. There is almost no job security because if you have a bad quarter, they have no problem ushering you out of the door regardless of past performance. Dell is pretty much a revolving door with high turnover. They have no problems laying off massive amounts of skilled trained employees only to hire folks off the street with not experience. However, several employees come back anyway because of the benefits and possibility of success the second or third time around.

Advice to Management

Pour more resources into the employees you have instead of spending so much on training unexperienced new hires. Listen to the reps and make goals more realistic instead of basing them off of the stock market.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    Lot of paid time off

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees, people are let go for unknown reasons everyday
    No stability
    Radical nonsense quotas that cannot be met and if they are met, they are raised the next quarter
    Lack of communication from higher departments

    Advice to Management

    Lower quotas, less micromanaging, improve morale, open communication

    Pros

    Large environment, good reputation, solid products

    Cons

    Business model is to specialize based on technical platforms; communication is not efficient

    Advice to Management

    Consider pool of technical people who can work in multiple disciplines.
