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

Pros

Dell took very good care of me during 16 years of employment. I was able to get my bachelors, an MBA, and tons of work experience. The benefits are great!

Cons

There is a lot of red-tape at Dell. Also, as with most large corporations, you never know if your job is safe from month to month. Hard to commit to a company that has a hard time commiting to you.
The culture was great in the beginning, but it has gone down hill. Everyone is worried more about their job than patting someone else on the back. Do a good job, then do another good job or you're out!

Advice to Management

Give your employees more faith. Also, quit trying to do everything. Narrow your core business.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was very good along with working side by side with some great folks

    Cons

    Management was very political on the lower levels and looked for ways to get rid of employees they did not like or who would not play by their rules.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to manage the lower levels better.


  2. "Fullfilling and challenging"

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

    Pros

    Exposure to latest technology. Emphasis on training. Salaries tend to be higher than industry.

    Cons

    A lot of overtime work. It's difficult to balance work-life.

    Advice to Management

    Stop burdening the people left behind after a reduction in force. If the workforce needs to be reduced, reduce the work load as well.
