    Pros

    Great Company with tradition of hiring great people. Very strong compensation and excellent benefit packages.

    Cons

    As with most high tech companies there is a high sense of urgency and healthy competitiveness. For most people they love the culture but for some it may not be the perfect fit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in hiring the best people. EMC has always been know for great technology but its people and commitment to the customer has set it apart.
