- Attention span of top managers is short. They are like little children: all information needs to be pre-chewed, condensed and simplified. Don't expect any analysis from these highly-paid executives.
- Spend too much time building PowerPoints and Excel sheets, not on doing actual work.

- Engineers don't create or build things: they just forward mails to suppliers and check drawings.

- Focus is on margin not product quality. Bare minimum specs are enough

- Product development is about passing gates and getting approvals

- IT SUPPORT IS ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. Disgrace for company like Dell to have such poor IT. For example: they don't have the windows installation software for repair. They can only re-image the whole harddrive!

- Corporate Mailbox is way too small. Spend more time cleaning and archiving mails than working. Dell sells storage but it's very stingy for their own employees.

- All mails need to be kept because some other departments will back stab you.

- Austin HQ campus is just collection of warehouses. Not something to be proud of.

- Endless conference calls in the evenings to align with the US

- Lack of diversity: too few Singaporeans

- Need to put on a show every time a senior director from Austin comes by

- AIA health care insurance is not comprehensive or simple enough. There are layers of different insurances that don't work well together.

- Micro management

- Directors who scream and make people cry

With reach to our other families like VMware, Pivotal ,RSA..etc.A wide range to learn and explore with flexible working environment. Could be overwhelming given all the cross collaboration across these solutions. Nevertheless, a good problem

如題,工作時間比較自由,但是工作強度比較大。
解釋一下,不需要早9打卡,卻需要晚上開會。如果安排適當,會很喜歡這種工作方式。


年輕人升遷機會很多,公司不養閒人,閒得一時,閒不了一世。


工作文化是牛仔文化,英語要好,溝通好過於實幹。
Pros
不用早9點打卡,可以穿牛仔褲上班
Cons
晚上開會多
