    Congrats to our very own, Yanbing Li, who made #7 on Business Insider's "most powerful women engineers in the world" list. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vI6kF

    23 of the most powerful women engineers in the world

    The percentage of of women holding technical jobs in corporate America is abysmally small - about 15% - and has been for years. That means you need a microscope to find women in high-powered tech positions amidst a sea of men.

    Pros

    Great benefits, high payscale. Some of the brightest and friendliest people I've ever worked with. Innovative company.

    Cons

    EMC culture is "seeping in" and is increasingly apparent. Difficult to maintain work-life balance with workaholic "yes man" micromanager expectations. A lot of process redundancy with resistance to change. Career advancement may lead to "pay reset" (in my case paying less money!). Benefits are being clamped down on to reduce costs (i.e., elimination of internet reimbursement, increasingly lowering cell phone plan reimbursement amounts, etc). Lots and lots of inefficiencies that are frustrating to deal with. Much of that has to do with management bloat, red tape, resistance to change, resistance to address inefficient processes & procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Make managers (especially "home grown managers") go through regular mandatory manager training with respect to management style and work life balance. There is an increasing amount of turnover as of late and there are specific reasons for it.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at VMware.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying online, I was contacted by a recruiter who directed me to their online technical screen. This is not for the faint of heart! The questions on the technical screen span a lot of area and you are expected to know names and processes directly from memory (no googling allowed). Do your homework before embarking on this mission.
