    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.
