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 :)

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

    Pros

    really non I can think of anymore except for maybe my peers in the field

    Cons

    Company does not value it's employee's anymore. All sales rep is being micro managed and are quitting because of it. Pay scales are messed up. Worked here for over 6 years, and new hires are making 60% more. Asked my manager for a raise, and he told me "cdw is hiring."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are non-generating employee's, your sales reps are the face of your company, and the ones who pay your ridiculous salaries. Treat us with some respect.

    I worked at Dell full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    professional colleagues
    diversity
    company culture
    team spirit--you can always get great support from the people you work with
    industry leader in e-commerce
    Tell Dell--i like this program where you can rate your managers and provide feedback to management executives

    Cons

    limited training opportunity in the office where i was working at the time;
    there is not timely sharing in terms of company overall strategy, especially long term strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    important to share short/long term strategy and plan with all employees
    consider cutting down redundancy for better cost saving
