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

Pros

Have had several managers at Dell, and with the short exception of one (only lasted a month), all have been excellent.

Cons

Current Sales Leadership (Felice) seems over their head. First time I've ever heard a salesforce blamed on an open investor's conference call. By all accounts an effective manager prior to this role, but certainly no Paul Bell.

Advice to Management

Transition Felice back into a more tactical role.

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of good enterprise solutions, but Dell is struggling in my opinion in trying to get a clear message to their customers.

    Cons

    Sales management, too much micro-management. They do not allow you to do your job, spending more time reporting and tracking sales activity instead of actually selling. It is all about meeting a bunch of activity metrics.

    Advice to Management

    You have great sales people, if you are not careful you will continue to lose the good ones.
