    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing depth of problems with near limitless complexity.
    Very good opportunities to work with dynamic teams solving large problems.
    Good management with tech-focus--in Texas; foundation for Austin tech-boom.
    Willing to recognize talent and allow internal promotion if you seek it.

    Cons

    Tons of layoffs drove fear into the equation making everyone unhappy--you never knew if you were next.
    Kevin Rollins as the CEO made some mistakes that drove negative growth and layoffs.
    Very large sprawling HQ campus with poor facilities planning--good for walking 1/2 mile to your car in the Texas heat.
    You can never get a meeting room and all are double-booked. Also, too many meetings :)
    A little cheap on the compensation, but good benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage risk taking and for pete's sake get rid of the old AMEX middle-management layer that just goes around making the same mistakes year after year. Get a company historian to document the last time you "tried x-as a solution" and see how that worked/failed. Lack of lessons learned mean that re-organizations just put new people to solve the same problem in the same way since nobody learns/talks to their predecessors if they even know they exist.
