    I have been working at Dell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits
    Work from home possible
    Great team/family culture
    Job for life (if you want it)
    Great management in legacy Dell organisation (approachable, understanding, knowledgeable)
    Ethical
    Great Diversity message

    Cons

    Career progression not that easy for the majority, can get stuck in the same role for years
    Whilst the salary is good, it can be difficult to earn the big bucks (like the software vendors for example)...but there is job stability

    Advice to Management

    Create more structured career development programme that is actually put into action for employees
    Keep operational and support roles local/in country
    Don't cap sales people commission

    Pros

    Can be flexible with your working hours.

    Cons

    When new management are put in charge, they get nervous and need constant reassurance to understand the business.

    Advice to Management

    If you are new, try not to use the 20 challenge questions on your team as this might undermine the feeling of trust that is needed.

    I worked at Dell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pockets of decent folks left from acquisitions
    Some areas have a reasonable work life balance dependent on department

    Cons

    Old thinking management in many parts of the business
    Full of politians, all talk no action
    Ego’s that destroy good business opportunity
    Very poor unexciting culture
    A place that you learn what not to do and then make an exciting career else where.
    Poor matrix with poor management selection
    No true career progression unless you are in the click club, not who is the best person for the job process
    Powerless HR, box ticking exercises to show management are great
    Over complicated, slow moving processes that need tens of decision makers to approve
    Many justifying existence by claiming ownership without actually being held accountable and responsible for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Old business, old thinking, times are changing.
