    Pros

    EMC has a great work environment and relaxed culture. It is a well-positioned leader in the evolving IT industry with superior products and phenomenal personnel. Employees are treated well.

    Cons

    Unless you are in sales or engineering, advancing your career will be difficult. Engineers and sales people are paid very well and move quickly up the latter, while those in other departments make less money and will struggle to advance their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Management does very well to motivate the employees to work hard every day. At the same time, employees are given the opportunity to give back and have fun. Management has done a good job and should continue doing so.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, excellent opportunities to learn, opportunities in many divisions and locations to transfer and grow.

    Cons

    Too frequent resource re-balancing, many in organization for very long time and resistant to change, silos and duplication of work. No yearly raise.

    Advice to Management

    Although the company makes money, you do not share the success with employees. Please pay salaries that are consistent with other companies of similar field.

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent corporate culture, great work life balance

    Cons

    Not a great place to work for young people. You could make more elsewhere. Benefits mostly apply to the older employees. None of the young professionals need 90% of it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what young professionals need or they'll keep leaving
