Former behemoth Dell (DELL) has struggled to compete in the dying PC market, but employees are giving CEO and founder Michael Dell a big thumbs up for his plans for the company.

After years of rumors that Dell would try to take his company private, the company finally announced a nearly $25 billion deal in February. Dell is partnering with private equity firm Silver Lake Partners and Microsoft (MSFT) for a leveraged buyout of the PC maker.

Employees seem hopeful that this is the best path for turnaround. Dell's approval rating soared nine percentage points this year to 81%.
