    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work, lots of training, ability to move into different areas and locations. Been here 20 years have seen it go from amazing to barely passable.

    Cons

    Was incredible experience in earlier years, true innovation and driven by engineers. Not the case any longer. Focused on mgmt by reports and not interested in feedback from field. Original talent long gone or forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Stop continual focus shifts, stop trying to buy innovation, pay attention to field engineers who work with customers daily. Don't manage by report dashboards.

    Pros

    Good people; easy to work with especially during intense design brainstorming.

    Cons

    No organization; requirements came in the form on phone calls after meetings in the midwest. Poor management.

    Pros

    Alot of products, most are #1 in the industry. Sales can be very beneficial.

    Cons

    Stress! Quite a few micro managers and we lose alot of people because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Go to AMA and take some classes.

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, mature work environment with great benefits. The people there are smart and knowledgeable of their products.

    Cons

    Not a very innovative place outside of the core products and services they sell. It's not that there aren't good ideas, they just take a long time to come to light.

    Advice to Management

    More integration between groups and departments might help improve the overall sales and delivery side of the business. It's a wonderful place to work, just a bit slow at times.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, above average wages. They do not hold back when it comes to raises, bonus money and rewards. They treat there people right

    Cons

    Upper Management is in the ivory tower and not in touch with the lower levels. The only time you hear from them are at events such as kickoff or the like.

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    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.
