    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's a lot of opportunity to move around within Dell, if you're interested in a specific area. There are a lot of great people here. The pay is pretty good. In some areas, there's a lot of flexibility on working remote full or part-time.

    Cons

    You HAVE to network like crazy all of the time. A lot of execs make decisions without realizing how it impacts people. Constant fear of layoffs. I've had several managers over the last few years because of organization changes. Makes it really difficult sometimes. Super difficult to get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Stop reorganizing the company every six months.
