Current Employee - Senior Manager in Austin, TX
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Austin, TX

I have been working at Dell

Pros

Flexibility in changing functional roles from Finance, Operations, Procurement. It has some very talented individuals with high motivation and we are developing and delivering some very cool products. Huge focus on customer experience.

Cons

It is very demanding and with the global expansion, you can expect to be on calls every night and come back in to a full inbox. They restructure way too often based on each leadership change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on long term growth and profitability and let the short term results be what they are. the stock price is low so not really any downside on that.

    Pros

    Austin area is a great place to be
    Working hours are fairly flexible for some positions
    A place to learn while on your way to a better position elsewhere

    Cons

    Employee morale down the tubes
    Quality nonexistent
    Customer service deemed too expensive
    Just about everything outsourced, Dell doesn't actually make much themselves anymore

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign, that's the best advice I can give all upper management. You are the people who have ruined this once great company, you are the ones that need to go instead of the loyal employees you have laid off by the tens of thousands.

    Pros

    the people you work with are about the only thing they have going for them.

    Cons

    In two years we went through 3 different business plans, and 4 different incentive programs. Each cutting into the amount of target incentives we could obtain.
    Dell owns you, you will have no outside life because of schedule conflicts. expect 60 hour work weeks, and six days a week with as little as one day notice.
    No chance of seeing your children, even though management has you working 8 to 8 they will still slip out early to get their kids home...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pick a course and stick with it. half the time the employees haven't a clue because management is confused with the game plan.
