There are no downsides in the area of benefits, compensation package, opportunity to grow the business, and opportunity to work with clients.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dell has the right vision to compete in a very tough economy. Keep the focus on expanding the solutions and offerings.

    I worked at Dell

    Pros

    There are some really great people at Dell and having a career at Dell can be really rewarding, you get to learn a hell of a lot and it can be a good place to work because you are trusted to manage yourself and your time, it really helps to grow you as a person. You have to work really hard but then the benefits are well worth it.

    Cons

    There are some excellent managers at Dell however unfortunately they always seem to be the ones who are not favoured because they dare to stand up and say what they really think, personally I admire that way or working because at least you know where you stand and can count on them for the truth of a situation when you really need it. Its shame that those attributes are not valued more within Dell.

    On the flip side there are some really bad managers who dont listen and are weak / spineless because they dont stand up for the good of their staff when it really counts, "managing upwards" I think is the expression where they are only looking out for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You lost a lot of good people and knowledge because you valued Cost cutting over Quality and unfortunately that is biting you on the ass now with the issues that you are seeing, youve made some very poor decisions. That and the fact that you need to give some of the IT folks a break sometime, instead of working them to death. Let them just fix the issues before you move onto the next big project. People dont want to visit the Dell.Com when its performance is so bad and it takes them twice as long to order the products they want to buy.

    I worked at Dell

    Pros

    Good people to work with; Driven, quite a fair bit of autonomy in decision making and new ideas

    Cons

    work life balance is not a word that means much even though everyone talks about it esp leadership.. simply no time to so that in a real sense..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more, be daring to raise the bar to developing talents and respecting this thing called work life balance... in the same way they always raise the bar successfully in breeding driven individuals and teams within the organisation
