    Pros

    The benefits here are good. The company is on top and still on the rise. The management knows what they are doing and where they are going.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than average despite the good benefits. The future career plans of the individual is not particularly cared for.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good salaries, independent work environment, remote or telecommute is available.

    Cons

    Sales roles are very demanding, management waits too long to address employee concerns or challenges.

    Advice to Management

    The company is so big, a need for a formal process to listen and assess workers is needed. Critiques of individuals can be subjective and is left to 1-2 persons. Loyalty should be reared.

    Pros

    EMC has a great work environment and relaxed culture. It is a well-positioned leader in the evolving IT industry with superior products and phenomenal personnel. Employees are treated well.

    Cons

    Unless you are in sales or engineering, advancing your career will be difficult. Engineers and sales people are paid very well and move quickly up the latter, while those in other departments make less money and will struggle to advance their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Management does very well to motivate the employees to work hard every day. At the same time, employees are given the opportunity to give back and have fun. Management has done a good job and should continue doing so.

    Pros

    Leading & trusted brand. Great company culture. Likes to win! And (most) people are willing to help and collaborate. Customers love the company.

    Cons

    Starting to lose the plot a bit. Sure, storage is not about SAN as much any longer. But customers still need a trusted company to help with data growth. Good executives have been kicked out only to be replaced by morons. Hopefully this will be fixed soon...

    Advice to Management

    Trust only management team players that give a damn about and understand STORAGE. It is the lifeblood of EMC. Back to basics!

    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 work life balance, excellent opportunities to learn, opportunities in many divisions and locations to transfer and grow.

    Cons

    Too frequent resource re-balancing, many in organization for very long time and resistant to change, silos and duplication of work. No yearly raise.

    Advice to Management

    Although the company makes money, you do not share the success with employees. Please pay salaries that are consistent with other companies of similar field.
