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

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

    Pros

    There is a healthy dose of work-life balance. Working from home is permitted (unless notified otherwise).

    Cons

    It's a very large organization. Many departments work in silos with different goals. Therefore, interaction with other colleagues, even within the same location can be severely limited.

    Dell is currently exercising budget cuts and therefore, travels and external trainings are often denied, even though it may be relevant for the job.
