    My Experience so far at EMC

    Product Support Engineer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsFlexibility is a plus, I am allowed to work from home and my co-workers are a pleasure to work with.

    ConsAs it is a sale driven corporation, there are moments where the sales team puts enormous pressure on support to get issues resolved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the support staff a little better. We understand that Sale is important, but the way the Sales staff is always given recognition while Support is brushed aside, is utterly not fair. Remember without a good Support staff in the background, the Sales staff will suffer. Remember this, so that we can retain the good performers out there.

    A great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsEMC was filled with great people. They offered free training that you could take anytime, any where. I learned a lot working there and wouldn't trade it for the world. My team was great. The benefits package were superior to normal companies.

    ConsSalary increases are completely bogus. I saw a number of people who left for much higher pay elsewhere. It was a shame to see them go

    Advice to Senior ManagementInnovation by acquisition is not a strategy. It's a great place to work all in all and I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge working there.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I worked like a slave with no support or appreciation

    PMO - Director of Professional Services Program Management (Former Employee)
    White Plains, NY

    ProsEMC is a very large company with well-known products and services, and brand recognition. My job at EMC provided me experience of managing many very large, complex IT projects across many different business units and functional areas (i.e. across finance, marketing, sales, legal, and engineering at many different business units). I was able to obtain more experience working with storage, network management, and virtualization technologies.

    ConsI was practically working round the clock, between 50 and 80 hours a week and an average of around 70 or 75 hours every week. I was working 6 and usually 7 days a week. I was on back-to-back phone calls managing projects and holding project status meetings. My phone calls were continuous from about 7:30 am until 8:00 pm and then I was working until 11:00 pm or midnight completing reports and meetiing minutes, organizing my teams, following up on open issues, checking status of the projects of my other project managers, and making sure everyone was reporting their hours. My team supported 3000 projects per year and I personally managed an average of 65 projects at a time. The work environment between team managers was very combatative and everyone felt on edge all of the time. The management team did not make team members feel appreciated for their hard work and did not provide recommended methods of improving but only provided very negative feedback. My personal life and physical health suffered while I worked there due to the high amount of work environment stress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time training managers on how to treat their employees fairly and do not reward managers for keeping their jobs by degrading their team members. There should be a rating system which enables employees to speak annonymously and freely to rate their manager. If their manager does not show signs of improvement, they should be reprimanded and penalized until they show improvement. Treating employees in such a negative manner will cause the committed and high performers to leave the company, and can ultimately affect client relationships as employees who are under fire can not perform well or deliver high quality work when they are continually on the defense against verbal and mental attack.

    EMC -- Adrift

    Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    White Plains, NY

    ProsPay is good. Good benefits

    ConsManagement is all over the map. They love to acquire companies then play shuffleboard with the org. chart. Employees are left wondering what's going on here?

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue. A pick a *coherent* set goals, communicate them well and pursue those goals.

    Incredibly smart people, but trouble with leading.

    Executive (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe amount of information you receive around education.

    ConsSometimes shows a lack of true leadership

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's about your employees. Create a mind sharing, inclusive environment. It is very tough to work for some people who don't care about you as a person; it seems to be only about them. I believe if your employees are happy, production will come.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A great vision, great technology, hard driven sales organization, a great company to work for

    Sales Director (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsChallenging high technology company offering plenty of opportunities for personal development and growth. Senior management have great vision and were able to build that vision via great acquisitions and internal R&D. A very sales driven technology company with great product portfolio. Great compensation and benefits packages particularly for Sales. Need high level of energy and drive to be successful in EMC.

    ConsVery metrics driven company, with contradictory metrics creating potentially stove pipe thinking and behavior. Work life balance sometimes is difficult to manage due to high level of pressure and accountability

    Advice to Senior ManagementThank you for your vision, leadership

    Job security is a bit shaky.

    Senior Customer Service Engineer (Current Employee)
    New City, NY

    ProsTeam atmosphere with lots of opportunity to grow. The benefits are pretty good and I have a great manager but others are not so lucky. EMC knows how to work you to death but at the same time they also realize the importance of down time.

    ConsI believe in the end you are not perceived as a valued asset but just an expense. The hours can be a bit harsh some weeks. I believe that some people have received the raw end of the deal with regards to positions in the company and forced to work crappy jobs. The opportunity is there for the most part but I believe they often force people into roles they do not want.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the CCA and SR process and integrate them into one thing that is simple to use.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
