    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dell Technologies

    Pros

    We had some talented individuals (still) on our team. They do seem to understand they're not in the same league as google/facebook/microsoft etc. Our direct management was good.

    Cons

    Complete cluelessness at software development. Heavyweight process designed by individuals that know nothing about how competitive software companies operate. Dell simply can't attract the best talent.

    Advice to Management

    Dell is still fairly good at building computers. Perhaps stay with their core competency?
