Great Comp, but you work crazy hours for it
Sr. Project Manager Consultant (Former Employee) –  Round Rock, TXFebruary 3, 2018
I spent 12 years at Dell, and found their compensation package to be excellent. Well above industry standards. I worked for some really great managers who have since moved on to other companies, and some managers who I couldn't wait for the next role to either move them along or myself along. They work you very hard, but claim work/life balance is a priority. Unfortunately, doing more with less is the nature of the business, so plan on spending nights and weekends on project delivery. This is usually not an issue, but moving to an Agile development method means spending 24/7 for 1 week out of each month on project delivery. People were making themselves ill trying to accommodate that schedule.
Pros
great comp, remote work
Cons
incredibly long days are the norm, promotions are almost unheard of

helpful, productive teams
Enterprise Tech Support Sr. Analyst (Current Employee) –  Round Rock, TXFebruary 2, 2018
the teams are more than willing to assist anyone who needs it and the management will do anything they can to assist you when you need it.

on 3rd shift the building is quiet and it is easy to focus on the call at hand, but during the day the building can be noisy and distracting at times.
Pros
opportunity to work from home
Cons
shift work on the phone

The company has gone through many name changes and is now owned by a different holder. The management was good and tried to work with you. Pay was poor with minimal raises or bonuses.

Lax but stable
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXFebruary 1, 2018
Work is project based. Short term projects do end up with you on the bench for awhile until your manager gets another project. Most eventually get on a long term project that lasts indefinitely.

Sr Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Round Rock, TXFebruary 1, 2018
Low turnover - people tend to stay at Dell for careers. Re-orgs are fairly typical, and can be disruptive to customers. Managed like a B to C sales company, despite growth with channel sales providers.

Not the same as the Old EMC
Content Developer XtremIO, Unity, VNX, Greenplumb (Former Employee) –  Hopkinton, MAJanuary 31, 2018
The heading says it all. Michael Dell is a corporate raider. He purchased EMC a year and a half ago and things have gone downhill since. I am not sure what future EMC will have in the Dell world.

Tier 2 Tech Support (Current Employee) –  Draper, UTJanuary 30, 2018

Great Opportunity if the Timing is Right
Principal Consultant - Healthcare (Former Employee) –  RemoteJanuary 30, 2018
Dell is a great place to work if the client base is strong enough to sustain a team of consultants. This wasn't the case when I was brought on board, and there were growing pains and downsizing. Otherwise, the opportunities offered were many, the teams were collaborative, and the clients were interesting.
Pros
Great opportunities and bonus structure; interesting work
Cons
New in the healthcare consulting space when I joined and, soon after, they had massive downsizing of the division
