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

    Pros

    Up until I left in 2013, I had a good experience at EMC consulting. I had some excellent mentors as well as managers. Things started towards a downward trend in 2013, so I left.

    Cons

    EMC makes room for good employees, even in bad economic times. However, they take away the entire support system around you--including many experienced folks, and then rehires new people in good times just a few months later--causing much frustration for those who have been there for a while. When I left in 2013, there was a significant amount of politics at all levels, which I cannot stand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop the yo-yo effect of hiring and letting go people within months of each other (I saw that a number of times during my stint at EMC). On top of that, offers of significant exit/retirement packages that cost the company a pretty penny could be used towards stopping the yo-yo effect of hiring/letting go. It doesn't make sense that you hire a bunch of people, let them go and give them packages, and then we hire people a few months down the line for the same position that's being terminated. This was a continuous cycle, not just a one time deal.

    Pros

    There's a lot of flexibility and time for the family. Benefits are great if not exceptional. Training is good, they do provide several options to get self-trained.

    Cons

    Career advancement can be a little challenging but if you are proactive you can get on the right path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-orgs can affect career advancement for some.

    Pros

    You have a job. Yyou may start with a good salary, but don't expect to get more than 2%/yr even if you're a star.

    Cons

    EMC is interested in making lots of money for their execs/CEO. Research the multiples of how much the CEO makes versus the average salary in the company. In the hundreds of times, versus other companies throughout the WORLD where the norm is under 25 times. You will be worked - hard - for years and they will give you a 2% raise even if you're billing $250-300/hr for them. You will then find out that the Indian H1-B consultant working on your team is making HALF what you do, and has been for 6 years - no raise. Then you'll get laid off because they can hire two of them for one of you. This is real. It happens everywhere. You can be as loyal as you can be to this company, but they will NOT be loyal to you. Go elsewhere. I suggest a startup where your long hours may pay off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have a worldwide meeting and brag about hom you just made more money in the last two quarters than in the previous 30 YEARS, don't follow it up - in literally the next SENTENCE - with how money for raises is tight, while the CEO and execs will be taking home MASSIVE bonuses due to huge stock grants the Board gave you. The Board which is filled with people in the same strata as you and getting voted the same huge stock grants...

    Pros

    Work with great people. Internal training organization is top notch.

    Cons

    More attention needed to be focused on consulting and leveraging these professionals to drive revenue, i.e. cloud offerings, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share long term goals as it relates to consulting and vision. Publish multi-year plans of targets that you wish consulting to achieve, i.e. financials, head count, etc.

    Pros

    EMC has one of the best health benefits in the industry. A Director I know still works with EMC for the health benefit provided. This is a good entry-level place.

    Cons

    Massive, and diverse product line, that makes it impossible to focus on core strengths. Every few years there is a re-org. The company is still run by Sales people, who only care about revenue, and utilization. No clear career path provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a clear personal growth plan for the employees as an incentive to stay.
