    Pros

    - There were some very knowledgeable people with some impressive educational accomplishments.
    . If you are a "coder", you have the ability to flex your programming muscles.

    Cons

    Everything they can possibly move off-shore, they are.
    They used to be very strong in employee training through their EMC University. No longer...they are more interested in gaining new knowledge by aquiring companies than growing it organically.

    Advice to Management

    You used to have a company that you could say you worked at with pride. Now, it is known as a joint where you take what you can from a US-based expert, then move it to India and dump you.

    Pros

    Razor blade business, everybody still needs disk drives.

    Work hard,work smart and make your quota and you won't have any issues.

    Cons

    If you have the right territory you can make decent money.

    Some good people are here but Some people make this place a home for life.

    If you stink at Golf you better learn.. essential skill for climbing the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on developing employees. Freshen up the office a little bit. Very hard to keep up to date with all the crap EMC is buying. have drifted very far away from there core business.

    Pros

    good work/life balance and compensation/benefits

    Cons

    lack of creative thinking, it's all about milking the cow

    Advice to Management

    it's really hard to change the machine that is making the money so I wouldn't have any. Tucci has made a huge success but is a former sales rep and that's what the focus is on

    Pros

    Easy going, lots of opportunity for education, Best Benefits Package. Work is interesting and diversified. Management is easy to access for questions and concerns

    Cons

    Too centered on Billable hours. Company products require to much after install support to be able to achieve the billable goals set by management. Projects sold as 3 days of work end up requiring 3 months of daily support. When Times got tough, employees stuck in these not profitable accounts were first on the copping block. Can not depend on this employer to be a life long career

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to provide more loyalty to its employees. As well as start improving the current product line to be more installer/support friendly

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Treat 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.
