Pros

Collaboration is what makes DELL such an interesting place to work.

Could do with using just one specific PMP process

Advice to Management

Try to keep the re-orgs to a minimum, 1 a year is a bit much

    Pros

    Dell offers great benefits and they have a health center on campus. I was able to make meaningful connections and contacts. Dell is a good company to have on a resume. Great for impressionable, naive young people who need to gain experience who are not capable to find it elsewhere.

    Cons

    Micromanagement
    Lack of work/life balance
    Out of touch upper management
    Unethical business practices
    Politics over performance
    Pay is low
    Spiffs are unattainable at times
    Abuse of using fear as a motivator
    No job security

    Avoid this place do not waste your time here.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Make them feel proud to work for Dell. Your employees should be the best advocates of the company. Unhappy employees decreases productivity which decreases revenue. Try positive motivation it works.
