Pros

Learn a huge amount, given great degree of freedom to find your own solutions and drive for results.
There are so many different technical solutions n the company portfolio and different routes to market that you can move around the organisation and get new experiences.
The work environment is high energy, results focussed and fast paced. Its quite exciting at times and stimulates innovation.

Cons

Painful amount of politics & playing the game. At times the internal competition is ferocious as colleagues seek to promote themselves.
Workloads are not managed effectively - you are set goals and often the 'how to' is not clear resulting in a totally unmanageable workload.
There is an overdependence on email which can lead to hundreds of mails that could take over your schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the number of KPI metrics and frequency of reporting. Simplify the sales function

    Pros

    Dell always tries to retain it's best talent and provides you lot of exposure to its employees. One can learn a lot in Dell.

    Cons

    Dell's current administrative procedures are continuously becoming complex, though it may help in cost cutting to the company, complex procedures even for essential purchases, expenditures and reimbursements discourage the mangers from acting on anything swiftly. Since there are lot of teams with in Dell, understanding whom to contact for what?, who else is involved? are some of the areas which needs more clarity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The above quoted Cons are definite speed breakers for Dell's own growth, you may want to re-look in these.
