    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Before Dell went private, the training opportunities and working conditions were great.

    Cons

    Told by supervisor that there would be no salary increases or training after the company went private. I was acquired by contract from another employer so I never felt like a real Dell employee.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the skill set and Certifications that your employees have and compensate for those on a equal basis.

    In this fuel, it's important to make sure that management is knowledgeable of the job that his/her staff to ensure that the client and the staff can easily communicate with them.
