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 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.
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.

I have worked here for ten years and there is a lot to be said for Dell's work environment. Most of the company works remotely which can make it hard to network, however it does enhance work/life balance. I would like to see more female leaders and opportunities for advancement.
