Former Employee - Director in Austin, TX (US)

I worked at Dell full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Outstanding pay and bonus structure
Talented and nice co-workers
The ability to fix a problem without having to ask

Cons

Most people work 50-60 hours per week, especially around deadlines
Very demanding work
People are promoted based on friendships with their manager and not necessarily on merit
Management is ADD -- they can't stick to an idea to save their lives

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick with one idea and see it through to the end
Stop trying to copy Apple, you'll never succeed in that endeavor
Listen to your employees

    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Austin, TX (US)

    I have been working at Dell full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    EXCELLENT benefits, wide range of opportunities for professional growth, attracts educated and experienced people that help me in my own professional development, networking across team promoted, great opportunities to develop leadership roles

    Cons

    Very large company and teams can get silo'ed, roles and responsibilities can be ambiguous, management turns over frequently, frequent reorganization of the business (1x a year or year and half)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the focus on career development and getting alignment on process development, what I expect in good management is business strategy guidance and help with personal career growth. Not all people managers can do both - but they need to do at least one.
