Current Employee - Product Development Engineer in Austin, TX (US)

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

Pros

- Flex time
- Work-from-home
- Great work-life balance
- Fantastic annual bonuses
- Engineers get exposure to a breadth of product development activity such as Project/Program Management, Product Marketing, Technical Writing, Social Media marketing etc.

Cons

- Lots of red tape and bureaucracy
- Management focused on Windows OS and Windows OS based products
- Not innovative and does not spend nearly enough in R&D
- Very frugal travel budgets for employees. Forget traveling to Global Dev Centers (like SDC, BDC etc), travel for even local conferences is hard to get approval for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Well read my list of Cons :)

    Pros

    You can move up the ladder if you want, management can help you achieve your goals if you dedicate your efforts to it.

    Cons

    News about Dell can change at any time, not much visibility on employee performance review process, depeding on manager you can be an ignorant on pretty much any aspect of your career
