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

Pros

Job security, good benefits, work/life balance, excellent managers, culture of doing what's right for the customer, strong sense of community and giving back

Cons

Culture of passive negativity, difficult to change strategy rapidly, sales is very hardware centric, M&A integration will take time

Advice to Management

While the strategy is sound, it will take too long to execute with too many legacy folks who only provide lip service that their willing to change. Interjection of new blood, particularly at the leadership levels will speed up the process. Those who don't want to be part of the new Dell should leave.
