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

Pros

Not too much of work pressure. Balanced professional and personal life.

Cons

No challenges. Company doesn't have long term visibility. The management is not good. They don't rate people with their deliverables. but how social or close a person is to the manager. The appraisal system sucks.

Advice to Management

They should consolidate their knowledge, IP and products, instead of expanding their business.

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dell has a name behind it and there is room to climb up the ladder here. Very metric driven so there is alot of focus on activity and how you are doing your job but it comes in handy if you've had a rough quarter.

    Cons

    Unrealistic quotas for certain territories. They change metrics often. Sometimes when they couple you as a team with partners in different cities or states, things break down and there is no fix, leaving the customer angry. They don't always set you up for a win or allow you to adjust so and when you're in a tight spot there is no help.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at metrics

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

    Pros

    Smart people,cool projects, strong culture of internal movement allowing for plenty of career opportunities

    Cons

    With such a large company (well over 100,000 in the workforce), there are often too many initiatives, diluting focus on the most important strategies. Even now with a strong culture / value statement / people strategy, you can still find remnants of the legacy culture of unhealthy competition and tolerating aggresive work styles

    Advice to Management

    Simplify and streamline the transformative work
