I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

Positioned to win in the future.

I've been at Dell for over 10 years, so I have experienced ups and downs. The ups have been greater than the downs, and overall the company is positioned to win in the future.

    "I can only speak to a career in Sales; and even though I did relatively well, it was miserable."

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

    Pros

    Well-known, Fortune 500 company that looks good on your resume for the most part. Good experience in the IT industry that gives you visibility to the latest technologies.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as career advancement, at least not in Sales. They make it near impossible to move within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote career advancement and assist your reps so that their careers don't go stagnant and they become less productive. Also, the nanomanagement has got to stop. Focus more on the basics, like selling rather than being so metric-centric.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on different platforms/technologies
    Knowledgeable people around

    Cons

    Resource allocation, planning and execution of projects need to be improved
    Most managers have been here for ages and hence have the same mentality when it comes to planning & execution.
    No recognition of good performance apart from a few emails

    Advice to Management

    Better recognition of good performance
    Change approach to design, planning & execution
