Pros

The best reason to work for Dell is the amount of freedoms provided to the employees. The work conditions are more relaxed then others. It used to have a positive culture (not the case anymore). It is a fast moving company with little focus on the micro management and more on helping the employees feel empowered. Everything within the company is transparent, you can see the position of anyone you talk to in an instant. The culture is also relaxed, the managers look like the employees and you cannot tell the difference. An equal workplace that does not focus on status.

Cons

company changes quickly, profit drives the business, easily outsourced and pro-outsourcing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dell Canada needs better moral, where are the leaders?

    Pros

    Exposure to latest hardware technology

    Cons

    For a software professional there is not much long term opportunity. Bread and butter is hardware product and most of it is commodity off the shelf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much focus on quality issues and undercutting price compared to competition. Employees don't have time to work on innovative ideas.

    Pros

    Challenges, dynamic environment, leadership model

    Cons

    Chaotic IT infrastructure, top-down decisions, short-term view disguised as "result-orientation"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dell business teams approach most initiatives with a short-term view; strategic initiatives, especially in IT, are very hard to roll-out
