DELL Services previously Perot Systems
Infrastructure Consultant - Russell Investments (Former Employee) –  Plano TXMay 26, 2016
Awesome career and experience obtained. Enjoyed my co-workers, made many friends over the years.

Michael Dell the founder and CEO Is a great man and has done well. When purchasing many companies to cover all aspects of IT his goal was to become a company that can provide end to end solutions all in house.

This made sense and I was all for it. Then he bought back his stock to make it private quite an achievement to do. The purpose seemed very smart in which was to make it easier to stream line internal processes, break down barriers, and to remove the division of business units so that we can work freely and easily across all areas. This goal never occurred for some reason. Maybe it was too difficult to get this done.

Out of the blue a total change of direction and no explanation for it. Michael decides he is going to buy a company bigger than his, EMC. To do it he sells off Dell Services Perot Systems. And to raise more money he makes one of the BU the Secure Works a profitable BU of the company sections it off to make this one BU and individual company to go IPO in order to raise more money to make the purchase of EMC. All of this makes me wonder what happen to his smart vision he had previously and I am not sure where he is heading now. But for sure the company will continue to do well.
Pros
Good strong company.
Cons
Large push lately to offshore affects US workers.

Layoffs No Severance Pay/Lies During Interview Process
manager (Current Employee) –  Planto TexasJanuary 23, 2016
When I was hired to work for Dell a couple years ago it was a different culture than it is now. It had some structure, some organization and steady business. Its a whole different story now.

Once they went private they laid people off first, than a few months later they did a voluntary separation package to get rid of the other people who work there. Now they have merged with some other company and are not getting any business so they are telling people if they can not find work within two months (on their own) than they will separated from the company with no severance package. Leadership is supposed to find jobs but now they are forcing employees to do it.

This company cares nothing about employees, has raised health insurance premiums consistently each year and works you around the clock.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Great Projects, Great People
Evaluation Engineer (Former Employee) –  Franklin, MAMarch 22, 2016
There was really no typical day at work here for me. I was encouraged to spend time on the projects that interested me and I took advantage of that flexibility to try on as many hats as possible. Various responsibilities included designing and implementing new testing platforms and practices, driving supplier involvement, and evaluating the performance and conformance of drives targeted for EMC systems. Management was supportive of accomplishing personal goals and acted as a gateway of communication to other departments. The hardest part was putting in the extra hours to hammer out the bugs that were most complex. However, the best part was the rewarding experience of finally seeing those same bugs defeated.
Pros
Great culture and flexibility of role

Fast Paced Environment
Inventory Control Specialist/ Hub Liasion (Former Employee) –  Lebanon, TNJuly 30, 2016
Daily activities varied from hour to hour. Ensuring all WIP was functioning properly, staff was adequate, assisted on the shop floor when needed, liaison for the supplier shipments, random IC counts, vendor relations, data entry and compile management reports. I enjoyed the people/co-workers I met and some became personal friends. With any start up company, getting the right person/job combination as well as the processes in order can be challenging. When everything comes together and begins to flow smoothly is rewarding.
Pros
Great Pay and Opportunities
Cons
Restructuring Eliminating Needed Positions

Storage Operation Specialist (Current Employee) –  Draper, UTApril 21, 2016
Management does not care about the employees here. They throw all blame at our L1 team here even though the mistake for example was made with a totally different department. The new people hired on were hired on for 10k+ more while they only gave us a 25 cent raise for the year because of raise freezes.

Work Life Balance Phenomenal
Business Systems Advisor (Former Employee) –  RemoteDecember 14, 2015
Worked with physicians and hospital staff to resolve issues regarding access to patient health records, managing employee database for access to system, installing scan stations, creating and managing hospital work flows. Our team works very well together even though we are all remote. Management is easy to reach, very helpful, and allows us to work without micro managing. The hardest part of the job is when on call over the weekend with minimal support, however help is only a phone call away, easy enough to reach out to the team lead or manager. I loved working for Dell. They have a great benefits package. Working from home is the best part of the job, but also has its disadvantage somewhat. Not interacting face to face with anyone can be a little lonely, but the advantages definitely outweigh it.
Pros
Remote career, Work Life balance, Compensation
Cons
Can be lonely working remotely
