        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Offered a one level lower grade engineering position than current
    grade level at current employer; Dell is conservative on job
    designations or pay/benefits that comes with that designation.
    They offer very good salary initially but one gets stuck at this level
    for long; Overall Dell offer balances with current offer on long run.
