    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 have been working at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k match, work/life balance, friendly environment, diverse employees.

    Cons

    As in any large company, things will vary significantly depending on what group or project you're working on. I've worked on some great projects and some lousy ones.

    Advice to Management

    The acquisition may have been completed, but integration continues. Continue to communicate with employees on expected upcoming changes as EMC aligns with Dell, especially in terms of benefits changes.

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

    Pros

    Some of the best people I have ever worked with. We were always encouraged to think outside the box. The senior leadership team led by example. It was the largest company I ever worked for and yet felt like the smallest - it was a true team environment. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Middle management often got in the way. The Executive Director level people I worked for are the reason I left the company. Everyone else - senior executives, vice presidents, directors and below - was fabulous. Not a lot of opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I think there was one too many layers in the organizational structure. It left the Executive Director level fighting to "prove" their value. Directors could report to VPs and the team would execute better, faster, smarter in a more innovative way.
