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

    Pros

    Go-go culture of technology, accountability, and customer focus. Good blend of large company stability and entrepreneurial spirit. Regular "top places to work" for Global companies. Decent compensation and opportunity.

    Cons

    It's a big company that sells consumer and enterprise infrastructure, so not as hip as a start up. Lots of different products, solutions, and business units within the company can make it tough to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, they generally have the right ideas and are doing a good job.

    Pros

    I like my team. Positive work environment.

    Coming from EMC, the benefits took a serious hit after the merger. Dell being private means we no longer get stock.

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

    Pros

    Various departments to transfer to and learn new products, fairly straightforward pay scale, most managers will help you succeed.

    Cons

    Too many silos of very specific products, especially higher in tech support, very little ability to become well-rounded. Techs coming out may be crippled in the "real" IT world at first.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more opportunities to cross-train, support well-rounded growth.
