    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Professional Working environment
    - A Good start for those looking to get into Enterprise level infrastructure (from a hardware basis, Server/Networking/Storage)
    - Good resources to hand to assist employees improve knowledge if they are looking towards industry certificates
    - focuses a lot on the customer, what concerns they have and addresses them
    - There's a strong movement within the business to move away from Hardware support only to a services support structure
    - Benifits and compensation reasonable if nothing else

    Cons

    - If your not based in one of the main support hubs, career progression can be extremely limited as there isn't that much of an opportunity to develop
    - for those going out of their way for the business and assisting the business in various needs is not rewarded and instead criticized
    - For the type of work, too much emphasis on metric based results rather than letting staff do what is required to get the issue resolved

    Advice to Management

    The direction dell is taking now is right for how we need to evolve as a business, however this isn't being taking into consideration from a lower management perspective as they are looking to operate on basic targets with lack of understanding of the movement the business is undertaking

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    my colleagues every day at work keeps me going. We are quite well paid for the job we do.

    Cons

    i find management don't have a clue they focus to much on bpi methodology and implement things which just ruin everything. Everything is stats based and the only time you hear from management is when something goes wrong.

    The perks that were available are now being removed and to be honest i dont think the centre will be open very long.

    Advice to Management

    listen
