    Pros

    Work life balance, good people, affordable location, fairly fast pace of work for a company it's size. Great compensation considering how cheap the Austin area is.

    Cons

    You rarely see a big change through to completion anymore due to "guardrail to guardrail" changes which is a very often used Dell term. Many of the strong leaders have left and those left seem to be mainly interested in vesting their stock - and probably know they will not get a similarly high paying job elsewhere for their abilities, so why leave? Although the stated focus of the company is to grow in the enterprise solutions space, internally there are too many resources focused on the dying PC business. Recent reorgs have made the company more silo-ed and politics have grown as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep stopping and starting on major initiatives. It wastes money and is frustrating to employees. If you plan to go private, ignore the numbers for a while and focus on the real long term. Lead like a technology leader and not like a bean counter or a consultant.
