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

Pros

- Great Salary - Good benefits

Not to employ a sense of asset amongst developers, and a path for organic growth to stay for longer term.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great overall compensation and benefits. Working from home is a definite plus.

    Cons

    Company has lost integrity and leadership. Solutions proposed to customers do not work or have been significantly underpriced. Rank and file forced to work ridiculous hours. Senior engineers are too arrogant to do real work or believe defects exist in "their" design/solution. Delivery Managers can't make decisions, manage requirements, budgets or resources. Customer Executives manage by intimidation running over top of anyone suggesting improvement in any area negatively impacting revenue generation. Escalations to leadership are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Truth is most of the best leaders have left or are leaving. Get your head out of the sand and take action. Dell is not delivering on contracts across the board. Don't wait for a customer to fail before you take the internal issues seriously.
