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

Pros

EXCELLENT benefits, wide range of opportunities for professional growth, attracts educated and experienced people that help me in my own professional development, networking across team promoted, great opportunities to develop leadership roles

Cons

Very large company and teams can get silo'ed, roles and responsibilities can be ambiguous, management turns over frequently, frequent reorganization of the business (1x a year or year and half)

Advice to Management

Love the focus on career development and getting alignment on process development, what I expect in good management is business strategy guidance and help with personal career growth. Not all people managers can do both - but they need to do at least one.

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

    Pros

    The benefit plan is really good. You get about 6 weeks of vacation right off the bat, which is great. This is also a good resume builder.

    Cons

    VERY stressful environment. Even if you hit your goal, there is always something you need to work on. They make it very tough to hit goals as well as get all of the bonuses that are available. As soon as you consistently find a way to hit the goals, they change the rules of the game to make it more difficult. There is almost no job security because if you have a bad quarter, they have no problem ushering you out of the door regardless of past performance. Dell is pretty much a revolving door with high turnover. They have no problems laying off massive amounts of skilled trained employees only to hire folks off the street with not experience. However, several employees come back anyway because of the benefits and possibility of success the second or third time around.

    Advice to Management

    Pour more resources into the employees you have instead of spending so much on training unexperienced new hires. Listen to the reps and make goals more realistic instead of basing them off of the stock market.
