Current Employee - Senior Manager in Austin, TX
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Austin, TX
Approves of CEO

Pros

Flexibility in changing functional roles from Finance, Operations, Procurement. It has some very talented individuals with high motivation and we are developing and delivering some very cool products. Huge focus on customer experience.

Cons

It is very demanding and with the global expansion, you can expect to be on calls every night and come back in to a full inbox. They restructure way too often based on each leadership change.

Advice to Management

Focus on long term growth and profitability and let the short term results be what they are. the stock price is low so not really any downside on that.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Dell is segmented into many different departments, and sometimes you get stuck with a great team and manager, and sometimes you don't. I was fortunate to have been in a good sales department when I started off, and the people around me were very supportive.

    Cons

    Dell is profit-driven and only cares about hitting their quarterly numbers. For such a relatively young tech company, this place is run by a bunch of middle-aged men in suits who act like their job is more important than yours. Excessively high quotas in the sales departments with few benefits or perks (no free coffee, and the cafeterias are expensive, for example).

    Advice to Management

    Be like Google- offer more benefits and kindness to the employee and it would make for a more friendly environment.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Presented a nice number of hours to work. The cafeteria was nicer than other places I have worked, and was reasonable priced.

    Cons

    I was eventually laidoff due to the plant closing down, and moving to Tennessee. Employers did not specify at hiring the length of the assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the employees that are over the temporary personal are treatred with respect and able to take off work without the threat of being fired.
