"In my 12 years at Dell, I worked with great people and learned a ton about marketing and business in general. The compensation was good and most of the time my work/life balance was manageable."

Working at Dell in Santa Clara, CA: 13 Employee Reviews

Software Engineer

"I worked in Dell Force 10, which is a networking division of Dell. The work culture is excellent, team members are friendly and smart, and there are a lot of mentors to help you develop your skills and become more valuable to the company. My recommendation for interns coming in is to be aware of the fundamentals in networking and know python programming beforehand. This will help the intern have a higher chance of being converted to full time."

"Company is good, job was interesting, team needed some work. It would have made more sense if the team had an idea of what was required to be accomplished, so things would have been a whole lot smoother and there would have been no hiccups."

"I have worked for Kace since mid 2012 as a contractor. I have barely had time to look up. The Kace group is being taken over by another internal group at Dell, and it has been painful to watch. Dell has been making strides with their software.dell.com initiative and for the most part it appears to be paying off. Good luck to Dell."
