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

Pros

The people at Dell are incredibly talented and easy to work with. The compensation structure is competitive. They recently eliminated the stacked racking and forced distribution of employees which brought much needed clarity to the performance management process. The company is well into a multi-year transformation from a computer maker to an end-to-end enterprise software, services, and solutions provider so the opportunity to be part of something historic and special is a lot of fun!

Cons

In the past, Dell has been a highly matrixed organization that changes too often reducing the ability to fully concentrate over the long term on meeting goals and objectives. Going private has helped reduce the short-term focus in favor of long-term results, but we still need to improve in this area.

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

    Pros

    Very fast paced with a lot of opportunity to learn and take on different challenges. If you get into a good team with a strong manager you can have fun and get a lot done.

    Cons

    Rapid churn, constant reorganizations, revolving door on management. Very little cross departmental communications resulting in duplication of efforts. People leaving and not being replaced leaves huge holes in your ability to get many things done.

    Pros

    Dell worked hard to reward results. Networking is still important, but it is close to a meritocracy as can reasonably be expected.

    Cons

    With a company as large as Dell, it can be difficult to find ways to truly innovate. Dell works hard to develop you, but often loses their best employees to smaller companies who want to take advantage of Dell's investment.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder on finding ways to promote and reward your best employees. You need to keep more of the talent you develop.
