    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Round Rock, TX

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Get to live in Austin
    Can often work from home

    Cons

    Literally ZERO work/life balance.
    Unreasonable expectations in terms of workload; especially with strong lack of support/information with which to accomplish assigned tasks.
    Extremely high stress level.
    Constant reorganization.
    Lack of support from management.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little more time planning the implementation part of the process before rolling out the next reorganization. The confusion that results from constant reorganizing creates an environment of ambiguity and severe lack of accountability.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Work life balance is great - growth is encouraged and opportunities are many for advancement. Benefits are good, and salary is comparable to other companies.

    Cons

    Realignment of departments and divisions is a regular issue, the internal support structure could use improvement, and the overall mission has changed over the years. Dell is redirecting itself, and while the direction is good and the path we are on will work, there are growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    With the new acquisitions, it may help to divulge more of the overall business strategy to the "in the trenches" staff.
