Approves of CEO

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

Pros

If you're willing to fight your way to the top and take on super-challenging projects, you'll get the rewards. I love challenges so I really liked my job.

Cons

Some favoritism exists. Be prepared to network like crazy and toot your own horn - hard to get rewards and promotions if you're not visible to top management.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
