Adversities and great opportunities, a wonderful inheritance when received by those with great optimism.

Pros

Regardless of who you work for and what you do, the opportunities that exist at Dell for either advancement in skill or increase in pay are only limited to only to an individuals ambitions and choices. Because of the many benefits in the parameters Dell has in the workplace to help everyone achive his or her goals, everything you acquire in skills and knowledge has endless opportunities waiting you while there, as well as taking them with you beyond Dell.

Cons

Inheritance: Though no company is immune to what comes down the proverbial chain to those below, when "trimming the fat" off to make the machine function leaner, it can sometimes result in management retaining a few bad "nuts" when chucking out the bolts that make them necessary. That said, I've experienced some managers who have had great skills, but coupled with bad management appetites. And that, as we know, can lead to problems affecting workplace morale to employees being treated unfairly - this being personally observed and reported, can sometimes negatively impact even the annonymous in an open-door policy sanctioned workplace.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time to listen and negotiate a plan that can minimize the negatives and maximize the positives of those who are adversely affected by mismanagement. But submit the plan to a higher authority to ensure it can and will truly be carried out.

    Pros

    Extremely flexible work / life balance. Huge opportunities to make a difference, if you care to. Money isn't the issue in persuing large projects and initiatives, it's generally whether or not the technology even exists to get the job done at this scale. It's nice to be able to not have to worry about whether or not there's budget, if you're even somewhat forward thinking, you can plan for and make it happen.

    Cons

    Acclimating to Dell can take some time. It's kind of "Here's your cube, your laptop, good luck"... Don't like your boss? Don't worry, we reorg every 3-4 months. It can get really frustrating with staff rotating and reorgs constantly occurring, you get really good at recommunicating the same information 50 times every other month and things can take ten times longer to get done as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate! Develop a vision and communicate it! Enough with the org changes already!

    Pros

    Excellent Compensation package. Many opportunities for learning and growth, especially suited for ambitious and hard working young individuals. Depending of group or area of work, can be also a rewarding experience being exposed to the details of the enterprise, and dealing on a global scale.

    Cons

    As a former employee Dell was once a great place to work absolutly great!
    However, with very unethical Mid Management and a history of unethical executives Dell lost focus on it’s employees. As a result the good talent has left DELL. With the past management stucture DELL also lost focus on the customer, which they have begun to slowy regain. Yet, they will continue to struggle until they can once again make DELL a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time getting to know their employees and team better. Provide better coaching and career development guidance early on. Facilitate job rotations, so as to avoid employess in a stale situation over time.
