I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good benefits, although the perks get reduced each year and the cost of healthcare rises each year.

Cons

The atmosphere drives most people to work very long hours although the company claims to encourage work-life balance. Lower management has their hands tied for the most part and often can't hire, back-fill positions or reward good performers.

Advice to Management

Find areas to budget cut that don't directly impact employee morale. Listening to the other employees complain is probably the worst aspect of being there.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Large multi-national company
    Opportunities to try out new ideas if you are in the right place at the right time
    Pay was decent, lower market range for base salary, but highly dependent on bonus delivery which varies on level, and individual and company performance

    Cons

    Culture is overly individually oriented, lacks collaboration, and super competitive beyond any value to drive innovation or best work; in short a destructive and unhealthy environment
    Inauthentic about values and vision; management lacks transparency, very top down closed communication style
    Not a smart company, seriously behind the technology curve, disorganized, and lots of changes in direction at the last minute, when management finally engages. People working long hours and going in circles
    Many of the people at Dell are callous, jaded and outright rude

    Advice to Management

    Get an attitude of harmony instead of discord, cooperation instead of competition, sharing instead of hoarding, and reverence for individuals instead of exploitation
