    Pros

    Good pay, benefits. Some good people.

    Cons

    There is too much overlap between products. Many of EMC's products compete against one another. EMC's products also compete against VMware and VCE's products (VMware and VCE are owned by EMC). This causes confusion for customers and needless internal strife for sales, and technical teams.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clear product strategy and pursue it. Purpose built storage hardware is moving towards commoditization just like all hardware does over time.

    Pros

    Get some good training and spend time on making right contacts. EMC Brand helps to built your own career in corporate world. Exciting to know inside story of how branding and marketing works in technology world !!
    There are lot of EMC product out in market and you will always have work.

    Cons

    Promotions and salary hike are for chosen few . it is very closed licensed based products , so you are stick to it for rest of your career. Company put his profit first and foremost before employee. lots of management changes makes you wonder where you will be tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work on training and share profit with larger group of employee.

    Pros

    They REALLY want you to stay current on your education!

    Cons

    For over a year, I've done nothing. All I want to do is the job that I was hired for (SE to one of the major SIs they partner with). But I have not been given the opportunity. Never given the chance to interact with team members, staff. Am still trying to understand why I was hired. But the good thing was I got paid all my salary/bonuses. I was in sales, and for the last 4 months, had no expenses to report!

    Advice to Management

    Give people the chance to do the job they were hired to do, don't go off doing their job, act like a manager, not one of the staff......

    Pros

    On the whole, a hard working group of pros who are intelligent and have a good understanding of the ecosystem - peers, competitors, partners, and adjacent businesses. The company is making the transition from a legacy storage business to a next-gen stack provider with Pivotal and VMware in the mix and is poised to be one of the few survivors of this epic transformation of the IT industry. Job mobility is reasonably good and career opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Laggards remain who only want to sell big boxes of disks, and many still don't understand the difference between infrastructure and what cloud really means. Fortunately, these are the minority and this group is shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the federation story but bring the organizations much closer together.

    Pros

    Alot of technology, most of it industry leading. Good quarters can be lucrative. Plethora of training available.

    Cons

    Pressure. The sales quotas go up every quarter. High turnover of account teams leaves engineers constantly looking over their shoulder. Management is also very stressed and have tendency's to take it out on team members. No real office. Sit in different location each day due to flex office space.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. They are engineers, not soldiers or puppets.

    Pros

    Great technology, training and work from home

    Cons

    Lack of diversity, poor work life balance. Very difficult corporate culture, not a good place if you are female or a minority. There's a reason why this company is never on the 'Best Companies to Work for' list!

    Advice to Management

    There's no hope here. Any change would mean they would not have jobs.
