    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Focus on work/life balance, with a supportive team atmosphere that foster trust to makes you feel like if you take time off you won't be coming back to a large amount of work that just hasn't been completed. It is a very energetic company with a passion to push the boundaries forward and do to truly make the world a better place.

    Cons

    It's hard to share any negative. I both love my job, love the people I work with and love the challenges that are presented to me every day. If you are not adept to working in a fast pace, highly collaborative and forward thinking company then this is probably not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue with the integration of two remarkable companies to make the largest and best one in the world!

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for professional growth through training programs, some peer networking, strength of newly combined Dell EMC brand.

    Cons

    Lack of cross team accountability, camaraderie or support outside of your own immediate circle creates much counter-productive/wasted cycles; limited to no support for identifying mentors and career advancement. Lots of ambiguity

    Advice to Management

    Hopeful the coming together of Dell and EMC will not be as seriously segregated as witnessed during these past months.

    Finding ways to drive greater employee trust and loyalty would go a long way to break the "Dell is a revolving door" perception amongst A-players.

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent starting salary compared to a lot of others places with similar roles. No matter when you hire in you will have vacation to start but it will be prorated. Ability to gain an additional $20k in bonuses/spifs each year.

    Cons

    Can be very political depending on dept/who your managers are, especially if you are looking to get promoted. Quotas can be a little ridiculous and almost unattainable at certain times

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so political
