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

    Pros

    This truly is a great work environment with great benefits, strong leadership with a commitment to employees on a personal and professional level. There is plenty of opportunity to learn new skills, work with different teams and develop your career. Also there is a commitment from management to employees on both a personal level with the new giving back program which allows employees the opportunity to support their local charities and also larger work sponsored charity programs.

    Cons

    Several reorgs and changes within management and direction over the past several years has been somewhat disruptive to our direction. Although the communication of the changes has been open it has been difficult to stay on track with the constant change.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The culture of the company has attributes like mutual respect, work life balance, and efforts to involve everybody in work/ fun discussions. One can go for fitness activities every day for 1 hour or so during their working hours. The atmosphere in relaxed in general. People do work well towards their release deadlines but with a light mood and not much pressure. Also, there is lot of transparency between management and employees, you can choose to work on tasks you like.

    Cons

    Not yet sure about the promotion scenario here. It may turn out to be good.

    Pros

    Technology was excellent and training was very aggressive. Bleeding edge technology with a purpose always looking to get 3 due on competition

    Cons

    Number crunching and too mugh politics from senior management. Never took advice from the field. Company would have had better transitions when aquiring companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good if you are in the mainline storage group

    I worked at EMC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    EMC is a very well run company. Salary is competitive and benefits are excellent. The storage group still runs the show, but they make most of the revenue so that makes sense. Some good strategic acquisitions (like VMWare) and some not so great. They have seen the cloud tsunami coming and are doing their best to adapt. Solid values.

    Cons

    No way to sugarcoat the fact it is a very large company, and has the typical problem of trying to make an impact as an individual contributor. Not particularly well known on the West Coast of the US, so may not be the best resume builder from a Silicon Valley perspective.
