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

Pros

Good brand recognition, good products, good learning opportunity, flexible work from home, good pay and benefits (but bad health insurance)

Cons

People are too worried about how to make themselves safe before the next layoff, not how they can grow in their careers by doing the right thing for our customer.

Advice to Management

Constant reorgs and layoffs over the last several years have eroded confidence and make it seem like leadership has no vision or strategy for how to get there. Its just a good ole boy network with people fighting to make sure they aren't the low man on the totem pole. Way too political instead of putting focus on customers and teams.

    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Determined business leaders, multiple new acquisitions, solid career opportunities

    Cons

    Career paths are not well defined, quota assignment makes no sense, Sales Comp Plan changes regularly

    Quit changing the comp plan and make it simple to understand and track on a regular basis.

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent overall pay and benefits

    Cons

    After the company I worked for was acquired I went from minimal travel to almost 80% travel overnight even though I specifically stated that I was not able to travel extensively when I hired on.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your employees have a life outside of work.
