Dell Services Federal Government is a pretty decent place to work.

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

Pros

Very fair compensation and salary, and some truly GREAT people as far as their managers - some of the best in the DC area, bar none. They treat you like an adult: get the work done, do your timesheet, call it a day. Cannot say enough about my manager, who was THE BEST while I worked for him - would work for him again in a heartbeat.

Cons

HR department and greater Dell seemed really disconnected as to what Dell Federal did (used to be Perot Systems), which is to support government contracts with subject matter epxerts in their fields.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dell SFG could truly be a gold mine if you let your managers RUN it, vice having HR step in every two seconds to see if they were doing things like BIG Dell does (which you weren't even allowed to talk to, bc of security concerns). Spin it off or let the managers do their jobs - they are some truly great people.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance, advantageous inside benefits, remote/telecommute opportunities

    Cons

    Consistent ambiguity, sales roles has constant and evolving compensation changes, many inside sales roles are unequally balanced as far as compensation is concerned, many layers of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher tiers of leadership should listen to the lower levels for opinions, thoughts and become more acclimated with employees day to day responsibilities. Company morale is the worst I have seen in years.

    Former Employee - Desktop Virtualization Sales Specialist in Austin, TX

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great efficiencies at manufacturing marketing, and sales.

    Cons

    Promoted executives that do not understand relationship sales, and the value of employee relationships with customers, nor the value and effective use of quota based compensation plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to the success and the model that was in place prior to 2000 and work to emulate that. That was the business model that drove huge market share gains and allowed retention of the best talent.
