Though, perhaps it WAS a bad sign that the pregnant wife of one of the interviewers, on speakerphone, was having a baby or something! I dunno, the price may be right, but at what cost...?I was an engineer/architect consultant for DELL in Round Rock - Bldng. Dell's 3200 man IT department is filled with incompetent managers who believe process is more important than making a decision.
Thanks, Darald Hi "At Dell 15 years and Happy in Austin, Texas", I'm a Pj M based in Dell Limerick Ireland, and am currently working on my green card.My plan is to network now within and without to apply for similar positions in Product Group or Services.I'd imagine one would have to work very hard for a company like this, but at the interview, they sold their work-life balance pretty highly. Meet people who are already at Dell, PMO orgs, etc. AMD, IBM, and I hear HP is building a new data center here I worked at Dell, and leaving was the best thing I have ever done.Though, perhaps it WAS a bad sign that the pregnant wife of one of the interviewers, on speakerphone, was having a baby or something! I dunno, the price may be right, but at what cost...? There are ups and downs as far as work load, but in general, it's a great place to work. Number one challege is getting our internal IT infastructure up to the speed of the business. Think about it why you think the employees call it "DELL HELL". STAY AWAY..unless you are a glutton for punishment. Project Managers at Dell have no direct reports, and have to rely on their people skills to get things done since our real authority is nill.If looking for a new position, it's always good to understand the different groups and pay structure.
In my experience, cost centers (like Services) have less funding than profit centers.
I'm tired of doing design work, and I'd like to try to use my MBA degree.
Would Dell be interested in somehow with my skill sets.
It was as if they had the wrong guy in the interview.
This wasn't a so-called "senior" sales job, it was an entry-level gig at best.
I have 4 years work experience, I have a degree in Civil Engineering for A&M University in College Station (3.67 GPA), and I got my Master's Degree In Business (MBA) last December from Tarleton (3.6 GPA). Dear At Dell 15 years and Happy in Austin, Texas, Not sure if you will see this any time soon, but I'm currently looking at networking to try my hands at a PM type position at Dell. If you would please look me up in the Global Directory by my first name, Darald.
