I have been working at Dell full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Smart People and aggressive marketing and brand focus. Dynamic environment allowing significant movement and opportunity to work different areas. Encourages a very social environment and multiple venues to be heard.

Cons

Immature software organization. Marketing & Procurement drives too many of the initiatives / ideas (versus Engineering). Large company - easy to feel lost or like you're not making an impact. The company seems a tad ADD (Attn Deficit) and doesn't seem to commit to a long-term cohesive product strategy outside of counting cost $$$ or profit $$$

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the software-related budget and resources (4x -5x). Commit way more money into R&D in both consumer and commercial divisions. Encourage non-marketing types to drive more initiatives. Take more chances in consumer space.

    Pros

    Great potential to move up, sideways or across from current position. Dell allows you to gain knowledge and expertise to move into new areas if you desire and have the drive to educate yourself.

    Cons

    Current manager has weakness in allowing people to violate Dell code of ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My current Manager does not necessarily manage well. This manager presumes people have knowledge or expertise and does not offer to help you gain in areas you may be weak. This manager is uber brilliant and does have good skills to include people in various activities/discussions. Unfortunately the manager does not deal well with correction of people,
