Current Employee - Senior Engineering Manager in Austin, TX
Current Employee - Senior Engineering Manager in Austin, TX

I have been working at Dell full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Independence, and ability to shape career. Dell utilizes very few resources thus you get to throw in the hat many different skillsets. If your engineering development its very likely you will get to participate in many other activities.

Cons

Hard to go up the "technical ladder". There are areas where Dell is not so great. There are areas where its really great. There are many islands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a vision. Show stronger direction as to what you want to accomplish and what you want to take. Have a LONG term focus as opposed to quarter over quarter.

    A great experience, was treated well (pay and management style) but felt limited in career advancement opportunities

    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in Round Rock, TX
    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in Round Rock, TX

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to gain global Project Management experience, and be exposed to Program Management (including budget, roadmap planning), as well as operational (run the business) responsibilities.

    Cons

    Owning your own career (is needed of course) and strategizing to have a long term career appears to be difficult with the many consistent changes in orgs - you may need to keep demonstrating your abilities for each new manager you have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the assumption of needing to manage our own careers - need to make them manage-able across constant (necessary) organizational changes
