    Pros

    The pay at Dell was pretty good, especially when you factored in how great their benefits package was. Also, recognition for hard work was fairly abundant in bonuses, incentives, and raises.

    Cons

    Alot of advancement within the company was done for the sake of diversity alone, causing better performers and more qualified candidates for support positions to be overlooked. Also senior management seemed to lack the know-how to take the right steps to keep the facility going successfully.

    Advice to Management

    Take a stronger look at the talent pool within your structure and try to promote people that will actually do the best job and provide the most support to those actually doing the labor, so that things can run efficiently. Diversity is important to ward off stagnance and keep morale up, but focusing on it too much hurts your capabilities.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    We had some talented individuals (still) on our team. They do seem to understand they're not in the same league as google/facebook/microsoft etc. Our direct management was good.

    Cons

    Complete cluelessness at software development. Heavyweight process designed by individuals that know nothing about how competitive software companies operate. Dell simply can't attract the best talent.

    Advice to Management

    Dell is still fairly good at building computers. Perhaps stay with their core competency?
