    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    With the acquisition of EMC, there has been a lot of upheaval in org structures and job opportunities (as expected). The merger was managed incredibly well with a lot of employee communication. Both companies had a great culture so the combination should be even better.

    Cons

    With so many divisions, it can be difficult to navigate opportunities and career paths.

    Big company with benefits typically associated with a big company: competitive salary, good benefits package, opportunity to continue career laterally or upward within same company. Good future vision for Dell Technologies.

    EMC culture being replaced by Dell culture. Many prior EMC employees being let go; expect trend to continue as new Dell business model evolves.
