    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Dell full-time

    Pros

    Management comes from a technical background so they have some idea what's going on. Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to actually manage as deadlines get adjusted on the fly to match up with when things are actually accomplished.

    Career growth paths were rigid before but impossible to meet under Agile methodologies so now one knows how to advance their careers any more.

    Meeting after meeting talking about constant growth and record profits only to find out none of the employees are getting increases in their compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision...sometimes it's better to waste a weeks work on something that doesn't get used at all than to sit around for a week doing nothing but trying to make a decision.
