    Pros

    Job security, good benefits, work/life balance, excellent managers, culture of doing what's right for the customer, strong sense of community and giving back

    Cons

    Culture of passive negativity, difficult to change strategy rapidly, sales is very hardware centric, M&A integration will take time

    Advice to Management

    While the strategy is sound, it will take too long to execute with too many legacy folks who only provide lip service that their willing to change. Interjection of new blood, particularly at the leadership levels will speed up the process. Those who don't want to be part of the new Dell should leave.

    Pros

    I work in the 300 person Wyse division,which is growing double digits quarter over quarter. There is a huge sense of camaraderie that makes you want to drive to work each day. Dell has incredible benefits and preaches work life balance, allows telecommuting, but I drive 90 minutes a day because the collaborative environment is so special. Every Silicon Valley company has smart people but how many have diverse (as in not just 26 and under and yes I mean you Facebook) dynamic teams that have the ear of management and actually succeed. This is a special place. And cloud technology means you can access your work from anywhere, no worrying about lugging a laptop home or worrying if it will be stolen.

    Cons

    The HR in SJ is disconnected from HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Having half the team in India doesn't work well, well it strains engineering and test and both teams are sanity checking each other's work anyway.
