    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.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company offers great flexibility and work life balance. There are many opportunities to grow your career and movement within Dell is encouraged. A diverse group of smart, talented individuals work here. Giving back and community service are encouraged and recognized.

    Cons

    Corporate politics and cumbersome performance review process. The company is going through some growing pains with the recent merger with EMC, tools and processes were different for each company and a lot of them are still different which is frustrating when an employee cannot access the information he/she needs.

    Advice to Management

    Work on personalizing the performance review process. Keep up the remote work opportunities and trust in your employees. Get tools and processes in place that work for all employees.
