    Pros

    Pay well....however management is too highly compensated and bonus structure precludes company cooperation.

    Cons

    Too Sales and marketing oriented..all talk...very little substance and integration of assets. Coin operated sales force, Services is it's own entity and despite the rhetoric..it's still a hardware company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce structure, utilize and listen to employees from other companies who can help you. Lose the arrogance and stop managing quarter by quarter..

    I have been working at Dell full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good first job.
    Great place to network.
    You learn a lot.
    You get a feel of what it's like working for a giant corporation with too many heads.
    Decent pay if you are able to attain your quota "goals".
    Great teamwork.
    Great time off and benefits.

    Cons

    The executive leadership team does not have a good sense of direction. Constantly changing the game plan and never sticks to something long term. Compensation plan consistently changing. The harder you work the harder your job becomes because the more business you bring in the higher your quota is. Almost seems as if the Executive leadership team goes out of their way to make sure you don't make money. Sales goals are very unrealistic and keeps going up. Example: You could have a monthly /quarterly quota of $3M but your teammate could have one of $1M. If you bring in $3.1M and your teammate brings in $1.5 then you end up making less commission than they do even though you brought in more business. My recommendation is to get Dell on your resume and then leverage it for a better job elsewhere. If you do choose to stay then make sure you don't stay in one role for too long. Your quota will catch up with you. But moving to another role is easier said than done. They let you interview but at the last moment put a hiring freeze and you are stuck! The biggest con is the negative attitude on the sales floor. People just aren't happy there but seem afraid to leave. Go figure...
    Also, you end every day with the feeling that what ever you accomplished wasn't good enough and all you are getting is the stick, and no carrot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop recycling the same ideas over and over. The current executive team needs to be flushed out and people with more innovative ideas brought in. Also, make it a better environment to work in otherwise you'll be left with people that work just hard enough not to get fired.
