I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Smart people,cool projects, strong culture of internal movement allowing for plenty of career opportunities

Cons

With such a large company (well over 100,000 in the workforce), there are often too many initiatives, diluting focus on the most important strategies. Even now with a strong culture / value statement / people strategy, you can still find remnants of the legacy culture of unhealthy competition and tolerating aggresive work styles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Simplify and streamline the transformative work

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

    Pros

    Umm....give me a few minutes...

    Cons

    Too numerous to list, but start with muddled management, a toxic work environment and below-average pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You missed out on iPod/mp3 players, smart phones, tablets, and now you are missing the services boat. Exactly what is it that you do, here?

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is possible to make lots of money and also to move up quickly in the ranks.

    Cons

    Very stressful, and they constantly rescind incentives and recalculate quotas so that you take home less money and they keep more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees. Use incentives instead of punishment. Putting workers on "Code Red" and making them work an hour overtime everyday because they haven't met their quota is against the law.
