    Pros

    Easygoing most of the time. Company has a good policy for flex work, but not all departments embrace it; some actively inhibit it even though Michael Dell supports it.

    Cons

    Invest more in your employees in terms of training and making them feel appreciated. You may THINK you do, but check the pulse of your team with a truly open mind and you may find a different answer. Additionally, hire people with experience and reward them accordingly. There are too many people who have no idea what they are doing because they are unqualified.

    Micro-managers bring everyone down because of their own insecurity.

    Advice to Management

    Way too many executives making arbitrary decisions that have trickle down effects. You could probably cut half the directors and run a lot more efficiently. They make high salaries and some of them aren't qualified to run a grill at a fast food restaurant much less a whole department. They are arrogant and frankly not the smartest kids on the block, but because they have clout, they "make things happen", even if the things that are happening are not for the long-term benefits of Dell as a whole, only their personal gains. There is no accountability and some people who would easily be classified as having personality disorders get to move up because no one is there to stop them. This hurts the company as a whole because the impact of their often short sighted decisions are never brought to light. Personal selfishness on the part of an individual will drag Dell down and Dell needs to get better about identifying these people and axing them, or at least, stop promoting them! Think of it this way: there are people who are so busy selling themselves that they don't actually do any work, and they move up because they have a lot of executive visibility, but those who are doing all the hard work may not have the time to do the networking or selfish promotions! Look beyond what people want you to see.
