Current Employee - Product Development Engineer in Austin, TX

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

Pros

- Flex time
- Work-from-home
- Great work-life balance
- Fantastic annual bonuses
- Engineers get exposure to a breadth of product development activity such as Project/Program Management, Product Marketing, Technical Writing, Social Media marketing etc.

Cons

- Lots of red tape and bureaucracy
- Management focused on Windows OS and Windows OS based products
- Not innovative and does not spend nearly enough in R&D
- Very frugal travel budgets for employees. Forget traveling to Global Dev Centers (like SDC, BDC etc), travel for even local conferences is hard to get approval for.

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    people. the people have always been the reason it was a great place to work. I could always find hard working people, whether in sales or operations or finance. I also thought there was a decent amount of leader development training and investment.

    Cons

    promotability for top performers - over time the company became a bit top-heavy

    I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for training and advancement! Management does a good job of allowing you time to take care of personal business. Love the work from home program. Good pay. Dell culture is top of the line.

    Cons

    I completely understand that we are a services company, but the company seems to only be concerned about the customer experience during tech. support calls. The fact that Dell Tech's are told not to do certain tasks because they are paid for services or because issue is being caused by a non Dell software or had nothing to do with the DELL product all together. While at the same time being told to do what ever is necessary to keep the customer happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always putting the customer over the employee in every situation is never a good thing. treating customers differently depending on how much they paid for their equipment of contract is not a good thing either.
