"Speak up and be confident. Don't sabotage yourself by pointing out your mistakes and 'lack of qualification', the more confident folks (a lot of them men) don't. They take on tasks even when they don't know what to do, and confidently present themselves as experts even if they may not have developed that expertise yet. Less confident folks (primarily speaking about myself) should do the same thing, a lot of times we are just as qualified (or more qualified) as others for a project, but may fear our limitations. I've found that confident folks just ignore their limitations and move on anyway, that's what we need to to. "

"If you are prepared to wear a suit, allow your male characteristics to prevail, and to become one of the 'boys club', you will go far. And if you are in one of the corporate functions but are not based in the USA, you will struggle to advance your career, all this despite being identified as key talent and put through a leadership development programme. Since joining with EMC, our culture has become less about our people and ALL about our 'old boys network' - that's the EMC culture coming through sadly... since the merger, the place just isn't the same and for all the wrong reasons.

"It’s great. There’s a ton of support for working mothers including 12 weeks paid parental leave (on top of short term disability) and now leave to care for family illness. However the culture is behind the times. You may not get many special opportunities or license to fail. You will need to prove yourself before coming in, work twice as hard, and vigorously demonstrate your success at every step. There is no open bias against women but it is a place where a statement like, “I don’t see gender” is not considered an obvious gaffe. It may be exactly what you are looking for and a great place to build your resume. You will probably not skyrocket to the top here or find yourself on any kind of “fast track”."

There are plenty of times my two year old has been watching Youtube in the background while I'm in an internal meeting. Everyone is completely understanding and supportive. Paid maternity leave has been increased to 12 weeks. They even now offer a breast milk shipping service if you have to go on a business trip while nursing. They'll come pick up your breast milk and safely deliver it to your baby. This plus great benefits, incredible people and a company that cares - what more could you ask for?"

You can take up to 12 weeks as part of the FMLA, but that is unpaid or partially paid. - Loan Refinancing : as a large employer with a functional university recruiting program, Dell is the poster child for the true american success story. However, while student loan crisis is huge in the US and just by sheer power of numbers, Dell has a huge leverage to negotiate better rates for students joining its ranks. It does not. Most tech employers Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Google, etc are doing it to retain employees for longer. And this wouldn't cost them a thing. Dell shirks its responsibility by not offering either the undergrads/grads it hires from college a support to get their student loan refinanced. "

"I feel that in general you definitely need to work harder as a woman in IT to get ahead. As for my current company, Me and female coworker work harder in every way than the guy that sits next to us -- yet he has been constantly making more than us. We had to go through HR just to get our pay bumped up to what is now considered the "new lowest". The guy sitting next to us is still making more than us even though we do the exact same job and have been working here for the same amount of time. That's, of course, just one example. I do know that there are some female coworkers that have been more fortunate in getting equal pay. "
"It's a boy's club. Promotions are often made on personal likability, not skills and talent. People are given manager titles and teams to lead without any coaching and mentoring.

"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. "

"Working in sales provides great flexibility with your schedule but taking time away from the job for vacation or maternity leave, seems difficult - at least from a culture perspective."
"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."
"Not many women at the executive level but many high performing women in non management. Generally flexible - get your work done and no questions will be asked kind of company."
"I've worked here 6 years and Dell does try to provide an equitable workplace, but we're all human and humans make decisions based on their own internal criteria. That said, I think Dell is a great place to work, that rewards hard work and success. It is a bit more difficult as a woman to get promoted, but that is improving. Great benefits, flexible work schedules, ability to work remotely all contribute to a positive environment."
"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."
"The location I am at is generally good about treating women and men equally, but some of the remote locations we deal with are rather chauvinistic. There is no guidance for maternity leave, you just have to talk to the last person to go through it. The maternity leave was not at full pay, and you had to use all but 1 week of your vacation and sick time."
"I've worked as an intern and now will be starting as a full time employee in June. During my internship I observed there were lot of women working there specially in marketing department. I see Dell as an equal opportunity employer and had good gender diversity."
"There is a higher ratio of men due high tech but I have worked in 6 countries with Dell and been promoted 3 times , had 2 maternity leaves ..I have had the flexibility of partly remote working for 5+ years and it works for me and my family"
"If you don't mind constant threat of layoffs, then it's the place for you."
"The Account management role is much more suited to women vs the technical role. It is a very male dominated division. We need more women in the technical roles."
"Dell has improved in the past 10 years when it comes to treating women more fairly, however, there is still room for improvement. As a working mom, I appreciate the flexibility to work from home when necessary."
"Working at this company I feel like networking is for important for women to do in order to find a mentor and to move within the company."
"Good company to work for, great benefits and good work/life balance"
"Morale depends on the department you are in. Generally I believe women are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues."
"Dell has made having a work/life balance a priority. It is common for employees to work remote several days per week (This would not replace the need for childcare)... Conference calls usually start early in order to accommodate time zones around the world."
"Almost all Sales Mgrs are men. Its a very intimidating place to work, very metric based organization for Sales. Very bottom line driven. However, if you can put that all aside, it can be a good place to work."
"IT'S A GREAT COMPANY TO WORK FOR."
"The employee is just as important as the company. Employees are valued."
"I've been at Dell for almost 10 years and my career has progressed pretty well. I've been promoted twice and have received decent raises and bonuses. However, I suspect that I still do not make as much base salary as some of the men that are at my same grade level."
"It a good company, you can work from home"
"The woman representation at Dell is fair but mostly women are not in decision making roles. Male management is not gender biased but there is lack of women in the top management."
"It is predominately men that work in this industry but that doesn't necessarily mean it is a "good ole boys club" at all. its just the nature of the business. Lots of room for moving around or up in this company."
