    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.

    Good company to work for. Good Benefits. Good Work culture

    Pros

    So far it has been a really good experience. Everyone seems friendly but it is a very big company that is of course for sure

    Cons

    There is a bigger mix of high and low performers than at my previous companies so that makes it a little more frustrating if you are a hard worker

    Advice to Management

    Keep acquiring big companies and let's take over the it world. I hope emc was just one of several big purchases we made

    Pros

    The organization values their employees, their opinions and suggestions. The morale with employees I encountered is always positive and the employees are eager to do as needed for the customers and the organization.

    Cons

    A personal con, would be the travel required for the position. I have traveled for work for many years and would look to reduce that to a minimal capacity. I have no problem travelling, but not looking to travel weekly any longer.

    Pros

    Good people to work with for the most part. They try to have a work/life mix that is fair.

    Cons

    Pay is OK but stagnant, so get the best you can up front. Raises are only for the TOP Few...

    Advice to Management

    Management is reactive to situations. In no way Proactive. Hire people and train them before you need them instead of after your people are burnt out.
