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

Pros

Good health benefits and 401k plan. They give you the ability to move up in the company. Good training program.

Cons

No direction on what the companies goals are. Value dollars over employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate your employees better, offer better incentives and give employees better recognition for their hard work.

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

    Pros

    - Relatively generous PTO and vacation after a number of years of service (even better if you're an older employer)

    - Some opportunities for lateral movement (not a whole lot)

    - Telecommute opportunities

    - Ok medical package

    - 5% 401k match

    - Good 2 months severance package (plus 1 additional week per year of service)

    - Yearly inflation adjustments to pay

    Cons

    - At this moment (year 2013), Dell is going thru Hell by going private. Unless your department is in the black (making a profit), except lots of belt tightening and maybe get cut. Unstable job climate.

    - Little to no pay raise.

    - Bonus is getting worse and worse (50% less year-over-year) and soon to be non-existent for regular folks

    - Expect near nothing for training and advancing your career. You're on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - $ is tight, but that doesn't mean you can't invest in your employees' skill set advancement. INVEST and maybe some talent will actually stay.

    - When your manager does not stay longer than 1 or 2 and their manager no longer than a year...there is no consistency and direction.
