    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Learning, growth, money Dell has all of it. There are lots of opportunities to move across departments and learn new skills

    Cons

    None for now, the company is huge hence comes with its own challenges of working across departments but therein lies the opportunity too

    I worked at Dell full-time

    Pros

    One the best jobs I have had with great people across the board.

    Cons

    They allow horrible managers to stay in place at the expense of logic, reason, and losing great people.

    Advice to Management

    If I thought they would take my advice, I would give it. Alas, this problem has plagued many areas for a long time.
