Approves of CEO

I have been working at Dell full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good opportunities to move up in the company if you work hard and show that you want to learn, and obtain IT certifications. Dell training is very good. Pay is also above average for tech support, esp. for those new in the field. CEO is very down to earth, very cool in this day and age. Benefits are very good, matching 401K up to 5%, free cert testing, free on-line IT study books, etc.

Cons

Not clear how going private will affect company, but change is likely. Sometimes good, other times unclear.

Advice to Management

Be careful going private and losing some control of the company to corporate raiders.

    Pros

    Good Pay.
    Flexible hours
    Solid support staff
    Great training
    Good work environment
    Great senior leadership. (Site manager takes time to try and get to know all his workers)

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations from customers.
    Call center. Can get very busy and somewhat stressful.

    Advice to Management

    The management I work with are doing a great job. I have heard from others on other teams that there managers do a really poor job of praising and focus more on pointing out flaws. My advice would be add a little bit more of the carrot and less of the stick.

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

    Pros

    Great people, pay, and work-life balance!

    Cons

    Upper management is bleeding the company dry with short sighted decisons and draconian cuts to staff and work tools. IT is mired in beuracracy which makes it difficult to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    You can't cut $2 billion each year and expect productivity and employee satisfaction to increase.
