    Former Employee - Senior Technical PM in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    The health benfits are great; you have the opportunity for great training across many of the umbrella companies such as RSA, VMWare, VCE, in addition to all the products EMC sells

    Cons

    Work in excess of 70 hrs/week; more and more administrative work; conerns over PM delivery being shipped overseas. Unless your sales, your nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize not only the sales teams; but reward the implementation & project managers that actually make it all happen. Having resources entrenched with clients while implementing one solution usually follows up with additional sales and revenue. But these resources need the financial motivation
