I worked at Dell full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

If you're willing to fight your way to the top and take on super-challenging projects, you'll get the rewards. I love challenges so I really liked my job.

Cons

Some favoritism exists. Be prepared to network like crazy and toot your own horn - hard to get rewards and promotions if you're not visible to top management.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (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
