Outstanding place for personal growth, education, and general career development

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsA motivated culture that has learned how to adapt to market changes successfully. Executive management has the right vision and makes outstanding acquisitions that continually assist in morphing the company to stay relevant in the market. Extensive training and reference materials always available with seemingly endless resources. "Do the right thing" mentality.

ConsIf you're uncomfortable with change, might not be the best place for you. Change keeps things current/fresh...regular tweaking of organizations and go to market messaging can be a lot to keep up with, but has an outstanding record of success.

Great company to work for with many roles to fit into.

Customer Service Engineer (Current Employee)
Eden Prairie, MN

I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexible work hours, trainings, support by peers and other SME. Good pay and benefits, tuition reimbursement, and 24/7 employee support. Global company with a wide array of products and services that cater to customer needs.

ConsDynamic company with many moving parts. It would take time to know the departments and roles.

Great products...top management in the software division need to move on

Pre-Sales Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits (Cadillac healthcare, PTO, Life Insurance, childcare if you live close to HQ), middle management has been great (macro managers, hard workers, etc). Salaries are competitive.

ConsThe top brass make random decisions with no rhyme or reason. There are definite cliques and if your manager isn't in it, then your group gets short changed. Resources to support sales are practically non-existent. Many people only get promoted because they fit into the "old boys" club version of a sales guy: white good looking former jocks who kiss up to the right people and aren't very bright.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice is if you have lost your drive to lead please just get out of the way and let someone else take the reins. Your misguided decisions are affecting everyone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great people to work with - some of the best and brightest around.

Program Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompetitive benefits and salaries, excellent folks to work with. Very cool technologies and corporate story, leader in the space

ConsBecoming a really big company - small raises, can be political, but that goes with the territory of being at $24B

Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways to make the company virtually smaller, more nimble. Do more to foster innovation. Need to improve image as an innovative company.
