I work here predominantly for the fact that the culture supports remote working. I now work 100% remotely, but while pregnant and for the first 6 months of my kid's life, I went into the office 1-3 times a week. I find that nearly every manager I have ever had here values flexibility and is open-minded to not striking the whip on the 8-5pm hours. So long as you get your job done on time, they let you have free reign of your schedule. It's easy to become a workaholic though because you want to do a good job to keep up with the talent surrounding you. I would definitely recommend this to all ambitious moms. If you are looking for a "scam-like" work from home job without reliable childcare, this is not the job for you. If you're ambitious, intelligent, and okay with ambiguity, this is the perfect place as a working mom to get the flexible schedule and working locations you need while being mentally challenged and respected for the work you do.
Dell is a great place to work if you value flexibility and enjoy working with a truly global team. They have dramatically increased their remote workforce over the last 5 years; and from what I read/hear, it's their intent to continue to expand that until nearly all positions are FT or PT remote. (It's not all about employee satisfaction; it's also cheaper to pay people a small remote stipend than it is to keep a cube open.) You can still choose to work from the office if you prefer; but they are steadily converting their remaining buildings into an open office spaces -- which are pretty but completely impossible to work in. Benefits are pretty good overall, but be aware that they will no longer offer anything but high-deductible health care plans effective 2017. If healthcare is a key concern, it may be worth looking elsewhere.

I've worked at Dell for 4 years. Even though the tech industry is predominantly a male environment, Dell is by no means a bad place to work as a female and they're doing a lot of things right. But, as a part of the tech industry (a future thinking industry!), I would expect that things like maternity/parental leave and flexible work options (i.e. working remote) should be more progressed as well. Bottom line, their treatment of females in the work place is not going to blow your socks off either way - it's not terrible, but it's not great.
