Does Dell Technologies offer dental insurance?

Pros

Great benefits including medical, dental, vacation. Company name has a good reputation in spite of changes. Some people at the company genuinely care about the culture and employees. If you are looking for an aggressive LBGTQ culture this is the place. Their stop/start/continue programs for managers are priceless opportunities for feedback- if they are still happening. Each year they do "Tell Dell" to get company wide feedback.

Cons

Work life balance only applies to the senior levels of the company. People in the trenches are expected to work with some life on the side. The starting pay is frankly dismal and not easy to support a single individual let alone a family. Company has lowered the total possible amount to pay to employees consistently since early 2000s. Target revenue constantly increases while your customer set is limited, cut or reduced making over attainment a matter of luck. Some territories are a career death sentence. When you do over attain you must get moved or promoted because that high success rate becomes the new standard for the territory revenue going forward. The tools and metrics used by sales are top down forced into practice without concern if they actually work. Employees are as much pushed by making talk time and phone calls as you are revenue. Metrics and quotas are not connected to realities of pandemics or supply chain constraints. They are based on upper management meeting from the previous year without possible change of course. Your opinion is only listened to if it agrees with the company direction- no matter how obvious a problem is - the middle and upper management only wants to hear agreement. How to get promoted is to figure out who is in charge where you want to go and kiss the ring until they bring you on. You are either IN or not. Your numbers help but only have a small bearing on promotion. Time in role is an excuse to not promote you- people frequently get promoted when they are liked no matter how short a time in role. Don't expect to be promoted even if you get an offer- can't tell you how many people I know were trapped by "headcount restrictions" multiple times- including myself. Dell pays lip service to promotion opportunities. Recent trends appear that Dell is forcing out veteran sales people and hiring in entry level. "Tell Dell" is NOT anonymous no matter what they say- if you are negative you are better off not saying anything because there was a meeting where "we want to know why this team scored the company so low on TD"- does that sound anonymous? On another note: I don't agree that a corporation should be paying work time for employees to actively campaign on political agendas. Sending people on the clock to the legislature to promote a one sided agenda would alienate half the clients if they knew about it.

Advice to Management

Stop throttling pay- open the taps on bonus and spiff money. Stop hiring off the street to senior level and management. Start asking why when someone is past role minimum time and hasn't moved. Continue offering work from home and generous benefits- it is literally the only differential factor that makes Dell a better place to work. Recognize the ones brave enough to disagree with something- often they might have a genuinely beneficial insight that could save millions.

Great benefits including medical, dental, vacation.
