Not Great

Technical Support Senior Specialist (Current Employee)
Mohali, Punjab

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

ProsGood Salary & great place to work. Very mature environment. promotions on smaller lever happen on time if you are eligible. Probably the best place in terms of trusting the employees.

ConsNo transparency. Management does not share any info to employees till last minute. Extremely unprofessional. Growth very tough as you progress, even if you are eligible, unless you have great personal relation with higher management. Recently, no job security. & it seems to be getting worse.

Advice to Senior ManagementShare important info
