Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Round Rock, TX
Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Round Rock, TX

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

Pros

Great atmosphere and relatively laid-back at lower levels. Lots of opportunity to develop innovative solutions to problems. Large opportunity to take on more responsibilities.

Cons

Low pay. Excessive barriers to information and red tape. Large disconnect between high-level management and lower-level workers. Excessive departmental interdependence, leading to frequent delays in projects.

Advice to Management

Advice to Senior Management – Be more open to suggestions from lower-level employees as to how day-to-day activities can be more productive. Allow departments greater autonomy with regards to access to information.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They leave acquisitions alone, at least initially.
    Good work life balance

    Cons

    Large company focused on servers, laptops, and PCs that has started making the change to alternative devices and more diversification into other areas of IT too late.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a more coherent strategy. Currently the software group is just a group of random assets that were thrown together.
