"The day I quit working for Dell was one of my favorite days ever."

What do you like about working at Dell?

"It was a good experience to learn how to work at a large company in a cubicle environment. I learned how to easily crank out business-style designs for brochures and for online training material. I also learned to work with tech-minded people, and gained expertise on a Windows platform."

What don't you like about working at Dell?

"My co-workers were fairly closed-minded and like-minded. I experienced a sexual harassment by my manager, which was very uncomfortable and difficult to navigate. I continued to contract for Dell for several years after the incident, despite the fact that a few of my co-workers blamed me for having their 'friend' fired. The culture at Dell is uniquely unpleasant, and they have a tendency to abuse employees' and vendors' time and expertise. I had several projects where I was expected to stay on-location for over 24 hours in a war-room working and was ridiculed for billing a higher rate for overnight work. They are also not always great at paying on time, and have a record of using contractors to skirt labor laws."
