    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits. Access to latest in IT. Great co-workers and bosses. Excellent severance system (pay continuation) provides financial security.

    Cons

    Quarterly reports that took so much time to write but were barely looked at by management. If you're assigned full-time to a client you don't truly feel part of EMC, as you're quite disconnected. Too many bosses and re-orgs (back a few years ago).

    Advice to Management

    You're doing well. At the customer engagement level, more team leaders to encourage and assist the staff performing the work. And when the client ended my engagement, you were there to help me move on. Not many companies do that and it was incredibly appreciated.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, above average wages. They do not hold back when it comes to raises, bonus money and rewards. They treat there people right

    Cons

    Upper Management is in the ivory tower and not in touch with the lower levels. The only time you hear from them are at events such as kickoff or the like.

    Pros

    I liked the remote worker flexibility and collaborative mentality. Lots of technical talent to bring to bear when solving issues. Opportunities to move to other areas within the business as well as partner businesses such as VMware

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be tough. Sales is a revolving door which makes other parts of the delivery and customer sat process a challenge.

    Pros

    On the whole, a hard working group of pros who are intelligent and have a good understanding of the ecosystem - peers, competitors, partners, and adjacent businesses. The company is making the transition from a legacy storage business to a next-gen stack provider with Pivotal and VMware in the mix and is poised to be one of the few survivors of this epic transformation of the IT industry. Job mobility is reasonably good and career opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Laggards remain who only want to sell big boxes of disks, and many still don't understand the difference between infrastructure and what cloud really means. Fortunately, these are the minority and this group is shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the federation story but bring the organizations much closer together.

    Pros

    Alot of technology, most of it industry leading. Good quarters can be lucrative. Plethora of training available.

    Cons

    Pressure. The sales quotas go up every quarter. High turnover of account teams leaves engineers constantly looking over their shoulder. Management is also very stressed and have tendency's to take it out on team members. No real office. Sit in different location each day due to flex office space.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. They are engineers, not soldiers or puppets.

    Pros

    EMC is a top company to work for. They offer strong leadership, onboarding, training, team support and structure that assists in the successful completion of projects and customer satisfaction

    Cons

    Some projects are bid without full input from the delivery team creating some issues to complete work in the timeframes with high quality required

    Advice to Management

    Ensure to validate with Key team members timelines and process and solutions at beginning in SOW creation for projects to better understand project deliverable expectations.
