    Pros

    Everyone is extremely friendly and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    There are slow seasons and you have a lot of free time. I find that being busy makes time go by faster but i guess it's good to have a break every now and then.

    Advice to Management

    My mgmt is great. Honestly don't have much advice to give. They are approachable and easy to talk to and they never micro manage.

    Pros

    Good, innovative company with strong global presence. Many opportunities to grow within and flexible work options. Headquartered in Hopkinton,MA EMC is ranked a top 25 Great Place to work.

    Cons

    Some of the facilities need updating however that is being addressed. Many long term contractors that aren't given the opportunity to convert.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps cut back on some of the upper and middle management layers. Also ensure employees are properly supported for their role, even if that means additional resources.
