Still a great place to work, but not as good as it once was!

I have been working at Dell

Pros

Thinking outside the box is encouraged. If you love going the deal, Dell is a great place to work. They have a tendency to hire some very good people. There is a great benefit to working beside these people.

Cons

Recent compensation changes have made it not as lucrative as it once was.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The new growth plans for the country are unattainable. Senior Management in the US are pushing unreasonable grow in a economy that is on a down turn.

    I worked at Dell

    Pros

    A very technologically advanced company to work for with many leading edge tools available.
    You have the ability to relocate and travel globally, if your position allows for it.
    Good employee discounts.
    Good & competitive benefit package.
    Once a year has a charitable donation matching program.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is oft talked about but rarely realized. Management will take all that you can give and then some. The unsaid expectation at the non-management but senior level is that you will be working 60-70+ hours per week although it's not in your contract and never stated, it's just expected. You will never get that time back nor will you be compensated for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be better examples to staff by exemplifying, "I am the reason" (the Dell mantra). Understand that employees have a life outside of work & their career.
