    Pros

    Most of the people are on a mission to please their customers and work hard despite any roadblocks to do just that.

    Cons

    Executive decisions are not made with the customer in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employee's and empower them to make changes.

    Pros

    This company offers entrepreneurial individuals anything they could possibly want. if you want a startup culture, it's here. If you want the "old school" corporate culture, it's here. If you want to work on the cutting edge of IT it's definitely here. EMC is the kind of company that is very hard to find. The culture here is extremely hard charging but maniacally customer focused.

    Cons

    Work/life can be lopsided at times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing. Don't give in to activist investors. We are the best at what we do - and our vision is complete.

    Pros

    They do normally pay over the standard (at least they did in the Atlanta area). They also allowed us to work from home frequently. Great benefits.

    Cons

    It's all about the mighty dollar. They don't seem to have any concern about the employees themselves. You are constantly blindsided by decisions that significantly alter your employment and life. You can put in numerous hours of overtime, go above and beyond and still not see any compensation while you watch others around you get promoted because they sit around and chit chat directly with the boss.

    Advice to Management

    The worst part of management is that it seems to have revolving doors and none of the visions that any management has get actualized. The direction of the company changes fast. I understand the technology is constantly changing and you have to keep up. However, it would be nice to have notification on how the changes mentioned in the town hall actually are going to effect the different groups. Be upfront and honest and you wont seem so sneaky, manipulative and self centered.

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Comfortable salary. They offer work from home positions. Many locations, however they don't have the advantages of the good positions in all of them. They have good business sense, try to stay ahead of the curve, and are profitable. Very good place from a business/market stand point.

    Cons

    Not a good place for growth. Too much politicking. Growth is usually only seen by those who do a lot of schmoozing, not by those who keep their nose to the grind and work hard. And they definitely work you hard and keep expecting more. When they are interested in new technology the just buy the company that already has it. This makes for a not so unified company. Even though the have the motto "one EMC" it feels more like every department is a separate company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have in house trainers that train specific to the position. Not just use the sales training for every position.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good pay. Lots of training. Flexible scheduling. Good time off. Overtime pay. Lots to learn technically. Friendly managers. Intelligent board of directors.

    Cons

    Some holiday work required. Some weekend work required. Not much free food or company outings. Employees in the smaller remote offices are often not given the same perks as employees at corporate or other centers of excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget your employees in the smaller EMC offices.

    Pros

    overall co-workers and environment is good. Products and Technology is good. Sales side is the best areas to work. Flexible, Offices reside in most major cities.

    Cons

    EMC doesn't give annual raises or compensation regularly. Professional Services side is not highly regarded and very hard to move out of those positions even if you are Rock Star. Work extremely long hours and days always during End of Quarter which always fall around Holidays.

    Advice to Management

    make all your employees feel appreciated and not hold all the good fortune in your pockets b/c the company is good due to the employees.
