    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I like my team. Positive work environment.

    Cons

    Coming from EMC, the benefits took a serious hit after the merger. Dell being private means we no longer get stock.

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits and bonus

    Cons

    Too big to grow, lack of communication, too political, they get rid of you without proper explanation.

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Various departments to transfer to and learn new products, fairly straightforward pay scale, most managers will help you succeed.

    Cons

    Too many silos of very specific products, especially higher in tech support, very little ability to become well-rounded. Techs coming out may be crippled in the "real" IT world at first.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more opportunities to cross-train, support well-rounded growth.

    I worked at Dell full-time

    Pros

    3 weeks vacation at 1 year in; entire company is off between xmas and ny.

    Cons

    clash of dell/emc cultures, dell dominance, lots and lots of emc people are leaving. almost all emc-specific employee perks have been eliminated.

    devote more time thinking about software side of the house, especially about roadmaps and stay more on course.
