    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.

    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.
