    Very good work/life balance. Good Managers and co-workers. Huge investments in R&D and lots of new projects to work on.

    Cons

    Beauracratic. New recruites are preferred over retaining existing talent. Current employees are under-paid compared to new employees. too many organizational changes.

    Spend as many dollars on retaining existing employees as you would be willing to spend on recruiting new employees.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility is by far the best perk at Dell, and not having to deal with office space-like environments is great when you work from home.

    Cons

    Institutionalized cronyism brought over from Wipro is dragging Dell Services down and changing the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct an audit of hiring practices in Dell to ensure qualifications instead.
