    Pros

    The benefits here are good. The company is on top and still on the rise. The management knows what they are doing and where they are going.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than average despite the good benefits. The future career plans of the individual is not particularly cared for.

    I have been working at EMC

    Pros

    People focused on technology. Always self-critical and willing to change and adapt to the rapidly evolving competitive landscape. Nice mix of growth, through acquisition and organic. Great benefits, outstanding even (parental leave, autism, adoption assistance - not just a run of the mill benefits package). #18 on the Global Great Places to Work list for 2014 and striving to improve. Walking the talk, not just marketing their way there. True focus on and belief in diversity and inclusion. Lots of smart people working hard.

    Cons

    It's a big company! Scale can bring bureaucracy. Messaging can get blurry, especially when trying to get >70K employees to understand and embrace new and evolving strategies and tactics. Sr. Executive Leadership is a little too insulated from the rest of the population.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the Sr. level folks....Come on down to the cafeteria sometime! You'd be amazed what you can pick up in terms of organizational intelligence if you'd just ask a few questions of whoever is next to you in line when you make your salad!

    Pros

    Unbeleiveable 6 week sales training program. Management pushes you to develop as a person both inside and outside the office. Company culture is a huge plus, its a great group of people and no suprise that it was rated top 25 in the global list of "best companies to work for"

    Cons

    Very competetive, I consider it a pro and a con depending on the week.
