Great Company, but Work very hard
Customer Service Engineer (Current Employee) –  McLean, VADecember 19, 2016
A typical work day for a Field Engineer is very taxing on the body, but there is always a new task, which is great. Management varies by who is over you. My manager was great, but there are some managers who micro-manage and can make work less fun. The hardest part of a Field Engineer is the traffic and always feeling like you're at work even when you are off.

SENIOR PRODUCT PLANNING MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 13, 2016
The people are what makes a company. Dell has some of the best and brightest. I learned a lot which always my goal. You get a chance to work with many different organizations at Dell so that is fun and rewarding as well.

Not a "People Company"
Sr. IT Project Manager (Current Employee) –  MassachusettsDecember 12, 2016
Rolling Layoffs for the next 6 months does not help people be productive. Morale is low.

Lots of people jockeying for positions.

They do not prize their employees. If you were in a company that was going to be sold and you made your goals for bonus, it wasn't paid out.

Good PTO by just not a place to be if you want to move up in your career.

Pay is sub-standard and don't hold your breath on getting a promotion or a raise.
Pros
None

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) –  MassachusettsDecember 12, 2016
OK company to work for. Lots of changes going on. Many employees unsure. IT constantly changing to try and be more business friendly. Dell merger makes things difficult

Cool Projects, Scary Job Security
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Franklin, MADecember 10, 2016
Great place to work if you would like to be involved in some really cool engineering projects relating to data storage and if you like programming/computer science. Almost all employees are under 35 years of age and do not stay here very long. There is constant fear in the air of layoffs, buyouts, and "changes in company structure" but maybe that has settled down now that the Dell acquisition is complete.
Pros
Easy to "blend in", great pay, interesting work makes days go by fast
Cons
Sometimes long hours, seems impossible to feel that your job is safe if you are a full timer.

PROGRAM MARKETING CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 9, 2016
Dell is not for everyone, but if you have a type A personality, learn quickly and are self motivated, you will do well. Dell has good benefits and decent work/life balance.

Not quite the buzzing tech company
Senior Finance Advisor (Former Employee) –  Round Rock, TXDecember 7, 2016
Slow to move and adapt. Complacency and stagnation. In terms of work-life balance, texts over the weekend were a regular feature.
Pros
Very international staff
Cons
Culture and lack of adaptability.

Refurbished Sales Department - Robert Hutchinson (Former Employee) –  OKC, OKDecember 7, 2016
It was a good job until they called us in a room one day and told us that they were taking our jobs overseas. Good severance package though.

Senior Manager of Cloud Services & SRE (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORDecember 7, 2016
I worked for EMC, and we were acquired by Dell. My business unit was great to work in, but that doesn't really mean anything to Dell overall.

Supply Chain Sr. Advisor (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 7, 2016
there are different Dell's within Dell. If you are in the right area, huge chances of careers progress, but if not you can be stuck in the freeze for years.
Pros
people, benefits, culture
Cons
management structure, too many silos

Customer Data Management Triage, Sr. Associate (Former Employee) –  Round Rock, TXDecember 7, 2016
I was not there long enough to form a just opinion of them.

The department I was there for, was simply to test a possible triage method for a group that wanted it to fail.

computer salesmen
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Robinson Township, PADecember 7, 2016
I really liked this job and the people I worked with . The best part was getting to meet all kinds of people and getting to see new computers gaming systems and laptops before they came out. A merger with best buy caused our kiosk and the others around the country to be liquidated or I'd still be working at this job
Pros
talking to and netting lots of people. getting to sell a product
Cons
losing the job through phone call
