EMC – Why Work For Us?


A passion for learning, innovating and success

EMC is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver information technology as a service (ITaaS). Fundamental to this transformation is cloud computing. Through innovative products and services, EMC accelerates the journey to cloud computing, helping IT departments to store, manage, protect and analyze their most valuable asset — information — in a more agile, trusted and cost-efficient way. EMC also provides technology, products, and services to consumers in more than 100 countries. EMC ranks 152 in the Fortune 500 and had reported revenues of $20 billion in 2011, the largest revenue year in EMC's 33-year history. In 2011, EMC was included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America, which tracks the financial performance of leading sustainability-driven companies.

The company’s competency models, used throughout EMC, define behaviors and actions that reflect this same mission.

    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.


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

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2015.


    The interview process was a fairly standard affair, except for the fact that I was interviewing for a creative role within an engineering-heavy company. I submitted a application through LinkedIn and received a call back from an internal recruiter a couple of weeks later. Once I interviewed with the hiring manager, things were fast tracked because I was in process with two other companies in the Silicon Valley and was able to fill a critical role within a newly formed team. Under normal circumstances, I suspect there would have been several more steps involved.
