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.

    Lots of opportunity, big company, multi-national experience. Lots of flexibility in work schedule & location. If you've been here a long time then you have a lot of

    Cons

    Very political, highly matrixed, upper level leaders lack courage, charisma and creativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The higher the level of the executive the less likely they will have a difficult conversation or deal directly with a situation. They all seem to be in self-preservation mode.
