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

    Pros

    You are encouraged to find what you enjoy within Dell and are given the ability and tool to pursue your passion. Dell truly wants the best and brightest doing work that they enjoy and I have felt nothing but support in my career there.

    Cons

    None that are specific to Dell alone

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support excellence within your workforce. Continue to allow people to move around within the company until they find their passion.

    Pros

    Opportunities within Dell are plentiful. Your interests are given importance and you are also provided with lot of ways means to pursue them. It has a management that strives to put Customer and employee at equal parlance and importance. It is a great place to start and a great place to retire.

    Cons

    None that I could think of.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue doing what you do and help us keep our pride in saying "I work for Dell!".

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

    Pros

    Multicultural, lots of opportunities to advance, good compensation.
    If you get a good manager, they can really help you move up.
    For the most part, the "Dell Culture" of empowering employees isn't just words on paper, most managers are seriously committed to helping you be your best if you show the drive.
    Work/Life balance is amazing -- family leave policy is second-to-none.

    Cons

    As with all large companies, the quality of your job will be highly dependent on your relationship with your manager.
    Very low effort is spent on "skilling up" employees(unless you're moving into management), other than some very limited "online training" resources.

    Advice to Management

    It's not just your developers that need technical competency.
