I worked at Dell

Pros

Very transactional for a sales organization, if you don't learn how to manage your time and your clients you will fail. If you learn this, you will do very well. Excellent support within the organization to get help and information, though not always timely. Excellent support for emergency situations.

Cons

Horrible Work/Life balance. You will work long hours and weekends and evenings in this role. If you need emergency time off, you still need to hit your sales targets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, it won't make a difference. This is a very top-down organization.

    I have been working at Dell

    Pros

    The people, the facilities, there is potential to move about and do interesting things.

    Cons

    From a recruitment standpoint, it is extremely process driven with horribly slow and non-user-friendly systems. There is not time to source/headhunt and the systems setup lends itself to workarounds rather than workwithins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more effective onboard training. Make sure systems (both hardware and HRIS) work. Choose another ATS/CMS vendor and setup. Leverage existing talent databases. Simplify some of the processes. Segregate sourcing and recruitment for C level and above positions, not just executive recruitment.
