    Very honest management. Great way of gaining tons of experience from no experience at all. Communication skills, multi-tasking and IT in general

    Instant name recognition
    Don't have to explain who you work for

    Employee discounts stink - better off buying at Costco or Best Buy
    Software group spun off to investors - all support now done overseas

    Do more than pay lip service to small business
    Dell only interested in enterprise business of 2000+ employees

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible on hours worked and where

    Cons

    My experiences varied with people, some were the best I've worked with but then others I really struggled with. Bureaucracy was always a struggle. Working in 150k person company also made it really hard to see the value of work in the bigger picture.

    Advice to Management

    Not everything has a positive spin, be honest and transparent about changes and recognize legacy differences.

    I worked at Dell full-time

    Pros

    Executive leadership trusts in the division leadership to make the right decisions for the good of the division and company. This gives these divisions better opportunities to move quickly when markets and technologies change.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover with the large acquisition and a sense of identity being lost. The teams are now under funded and too spread out.

    Advice to Management

    Make Dell a place to be in the Silicon Valley.
