    Overall good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsThe people here are great. There's a lot of diversity and you'll work with all types of personalities. EMC also offers good benefits, corporate discounts, community events, and nice facilities.

    ConsThere is often a large workload for a limited amount of resources. Depending on the management, this can lead to overloaded employees, low to zero work-life balance, and high burn-out rates.

    Good place to work

    Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ConsJust about the same cons as you would expect from big corporations... I have nothing to add..

    Advice to Senior ManagementBenefits needs to be tailored to the location of the office.

    Very good place to work

    Account Executive (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsGreat people, great customers, very challenging work at the center of the IT universe. The company has great leadership and is very focused on it's customers

    ConsCompany has gotten very complex with multiple divisions and organizations that are often at odds with each other. Even within the core EMC there are products and groups that overlap and arent aligned

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to try and grow but streamline and make more efficient what you have

    Big company, well run, stock price is fairly stable.

    Senior Technical Writer (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsFlexible working hours. Management made sound financial decisions during difficult financial times (2009). Instead of a layoff, they cut all salaries temporarily until the economic outlook improved. Decent benefits including ESPP. Vacation accrual is fair, especially for employees in California.

    ConsEMC has an east coast corporate culture. It doesn't provide the same level of legal support for foreign nationals who are seeking H1B visas as its west coast based competitors. There appears to be some disparity between employee perks in different divisions. Internet security on VPN is too stringent. Outlook is the only supported e-mail application. I would prefer to use Mozilla Thunderbird.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore transparency into management decisions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
