    Big company that really cares about their employees. They give a better severance package than expected.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sucking up to leadership in Texas.

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of different jobs and locations to move around. Most of the people aren't bad.

    Cons

    The size of the company is it's biggest con. With all the different divisions and segments, all the different management teams have different goals, often conflicting with each other. The company has no clear goal. Every few years, they'll come up with a new "Dell 2.0" plan, but it will be some vague, generic goal like it is every time. The mergers (and recent unmergers) of the last few years have proven that they don't know what they are doing.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues to work with, some good team work and good people.

    Cons

    Recent merger has seen big changes to job titles, strategy and approach which are not positive. Work life balance is poor. Unrealistic timelines and expectations on management often given. People burn out quickly.

    Advice to Management

    There is little evidence of leadership from senior management, VP and above level which is felt in the organization and operations. Frustrating working environment.
