    Pros

    Get some good training and spend time on making right contacts. EMC Brand helps to built your own career in corporate world. Exciting to know inside story of how branding and marketing works in technology world !!
    There are lot of EMC product out in market and you will always have work.

    Cons

    Promotions and salary hike are for chosen few . it is very closed licensed based products , so you are stick to it for rest of your career. Company put his profit first and foremost before employee. lots of management changes makes you wonder where you will be tomorrow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work on training and share profit with larger group of employee.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager Consulting in New York, NY

    I have been working at EMC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Was very entrepreneurial and some areas are still. Plenty of different discipline areas to explore and develop in. Customer satisfaction driven organization.

    Cons

    Becoming very bureaucratic in it's operations. Less cross role flexibility, meaning your role is all you're to be working on. Lost the basis of a good consulting organization. People are turning their brains off to work within the constraints of the machine that is being built. Doesn't seem to be improving consulting revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you want to stay effective and relevant, as a consulting services provider, you need to benchmark better against highly successful consulting organizations, especially for consultant retention and development. If you just want to be a body shop, then continue your path of rate erosion and lack of entrepreneurial outlets.

    I worked at EMC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, PTO, etc. I was able to work at the client site for many years.

    Cons

    Kept stressing the importance of career growth, but their efforts to help were half-hearted. My management rarely showed its face to my client, and behaved as if they were entitled to have me work there. Also, there was too much focus on useless certifications with no advancement even if you did get them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your strength is your consultants.

    Pros

    great environment to work. Majority of the management folks are very good to work with.

    Cons

    Compensation review is not fair. You work day and night and you get nothing and lazy ones who really knows how to talk they would get more compensation and promotions. Your brain gets you nowhere rather your mouth gets you promotions!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and know people's skill.
