    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for lateral moves. Good benefits. If you have a good manager who will fight for you during the annual review process, you can make a nice career at this company.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. Still a white male dominated company, even after they were sued for discrimination against women. The culture favors aggressive type A personalities so if you don't fit that description it is unlikely you will be promoted. Also if you get a bad manager (there are lots of those at Dell) you will have a slim chance for promotion, regardless of how well you perform. Make sure you understand the grade level structure before you accept a position. It can be very difficult to get to the next grade level so negotiate it before you join if possible.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about diversity (race, gender, personal style).. The company needs to grow a soul to retain good employees. The gravy days are over so you won't be able to buy employee loyalty with big bonuses as you did in the past.
