Company summary

Vision. Drive. Stamina. That's where we started.

For nearly three decades, Dell has been on an incredible journey, experiencing positive growth on a global scale. Through it all, it's our people — customers, business partners and team members — who keep us moving through the rapidly evolving world of technology.

The Dell team

We know we’re a little biased, but we think our team members are the most amazing people we’ll ever meet. Their talent and dedication drives our success, and when they put their minds to it, there’s really nothing they can’t achieve. We’re grateful for their continued contributions and commitment to creating the best possible working environment for our global team.

Cultivate the extraordinary. Leverage the power of many.

A diverse workforce is critical to generating new ideas and inspiring innovation. Only through the power of multiple perspectives can we hope to deliver on our purpose to improve people's lives through technology. Because first we have to understand people — their values, lifestyles, dreams — so we can invent a way to help them grow and thrive.

Diverse and inclusive workplace
At Dell, we recognize and do business in a world that is constantly evolving. We understand that managing diversity and championing an inclusive culture is essential to our collective success. To build enduring relationships, we must create a welcoming workplace where people of all backgrounds come together to do their best work. By embracing these individual differences and actively leveraging them, we are able to harness each team member’s full potential, drive innovation and foster an environment for our global team to do their best work and meet the aspirations of our customers.

Two ways in which we underscore our commitment to inclusion are through: 



Dell Employee Resource Groups and EMC Employee Circles

Combined, these groups represent 14 dimensions of diversity and include more than 32,000 team members in 300+ chapters across more than 60 countries. The 11 Dell Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and 12 EMC Circles enable a range of skills including leadership development and positive community impact through personal and professional peer mentoring, volunteering and coaching.



Cultural awareness training

As part of our commitment to ensuring our teams around the globe respect and value one another, we require that our new team members participate in cultural awareness training that facilitates powerful self-awareness. Team members are exposed to behaviors that are productive and counter-productive in creating an inclusive workplace and at the same time are given tools to help support one another to foster a more collaborative environment.

Benefits. Rewards. Balance. Have it all at Dell.

How would we describe the company culture?



How we work. How we lead.

We know our culture matters in how we run the business, how we go to market, and how we lead each other. It describes what we care about, the things in which we’re willing to invest and the rules that define us as a team.

Our culture is defined by our values and made real every day by how we work and lead. We know our culture is the foundation for all we’ve achieved, and for all the success ahead of us. This is our culture code. #CultureCode.

Join the workplace of the future
Technology now makes it possible to work from almost anywhere. Creating a sustainable and innovative business is becoming more important. And, today’s employee wants to work differently. 

At Dell you can work hard for our customers while creating a happy and successful life outside the office. Our journey towards a more flexible work culture started has evolved since before 2009. Now we have a wide variety of options for our team members to choose from, that drive great results for the business no matter how or where they get it done. For this reason, we’re proud of the investments we’ve made in workplace innovation and IT solutions that empower our teams to do their best work however it works best for them.

Do your best work in the way which works best for you.
Flexibility is a key aspect of Dell's business strategy that enables us to compete for the best talent. An opportunity to promote changes in cultural norms, leadership practices and work processes to the benefit of individuals and the business, and a new way to approach work in terms of how, where and when work is conducted.

As part of our People Strategy, Connected Workplace encourages employees to find new ways to work, and focuses on driving business results rather than looking at where work is done. Our Connected Workplace program enable eligible team members to choose the style which best fulfills a team members needs both in their job and their personal life. The Connected Workplace options for flexible work that are available to you are:

  • Mobile (Telework): Perform full-time job responsibilities from one to four days a week at a site other than primary location pursuant to a formal, ongoing work schedule or arrangement.
  • Remote work: Perform full-time responsibilities exclusively from a location outside of the primary location (no dedicated workspace on site).

When mobile and remote aren’t available or cannot work for you, we also have other flexible work options to fit your specific need such as flextime, part-time, job sharing or compressed work week.

Flexible work practices also help to conserve natural resources and energy, reduce transportation-related pollution, promote public safety and lessen the strain on transportation systems. It also allows us to maximize our use of office space, supporting team members in working where and when they’re most productive and minimizing our operating costs and environmental impact.

We understand tools, technology and training are imperative for remote or mobile team members to cultivate personal connections, build strong teams and manage a dispersed global workforce. Therefore, we continue to invest in and encourage team members to utilize resources available to them such as virtual training offerings and a dependable IT infrastructure.

Company culture

If you are fresh off the boat, or out of school it must feel like an amazing opportunity.
Personally it is less than half the company it once was.
You will hear of company or corporate culture. There once was.
Dell was once an innovator. A true "Fortune" company. I have met Michael Dell on numerous occassions. And from then to now, great things definitely have gone the way of the dinosaur at this company.

Support from Management

Mgmt is most often doing nothing directly with the employee. If you even know the name of your manager it would be something rare.
