Current Employee - Director in Austin, TX

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

Pros

Great opportunities if you know the right people. Wide variety of opportunities, great place for people who want to explore careers, functional areas and roles. Entrepreneurial, go-get-it-done culture with smart people

Cons

Large company, consistency and collaboration lacking. Always lacking for investment to do the right things and always reorg'ing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share your vision of what you will differently after privatization with the employees. Stick to a strategy long enough to see it succeed. Value your employees - more than words and make the comp adjustment

    Pros

    Lots of great people. Plenty of ability to move around inside the organization from on role to another.

    Cons

    Promotions & bonuses often come based on who you know vs. what you've done; lots of egos and "experts" in meetings which leads to inertia, too many people don't embrace innovative thinking, mid-management is often clueless (or worse, untruthful), constant change which leads to misguided vision and direction...making the organization seem schizophrenic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the experienced people who've worked here for more time than some of you, and in many cases KNOW more than you. There are lots of great ICs who are motivated,insightful, knowledgeable, trying to do the RIGHT THING for customers and have walked many miles in shoes that many managers haven't ever worn. Your refusal to acknowledge (and implement) what the "feet on the street" are telling you is crushing the spirit of some of your best and brightest people. It's also driving the company into the ground.
