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.

    I worked at Dell as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    flex time, remote work ability for some positions. the company really cares about employees.

    Cons

    really none that I can think of. they are private now, so they should become even better if they do what can be done at this time going forward.

    Advice to Management

    promote those who have done the jobs they supervise, and are the best in those jobs while in them - before they go into management. that way you have the best talent, when they are management ready, in management. that's across the board for all companies as advice.
