    Best big company I've ever worked for

    Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee) McLean, VA

    ProsAlways new technology to learn about and to add to product portfolio (double-edged sword, see below). Strong sense of corporate, division, and team support. Good compensation and benefits. Strong leadership at CEO and industry level, and decent agility in market.

    ConsNo clear career path/options due to flat hierarchy and relevant roles. Non-stop product learning and sales cycle, but to be expected in sales team. Disconnect between corporate, commercial sales perspective vs realities of Federal sales (though this is quickly closing!).

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider creating more roles/opportunity for upward movement and leadership.

    Consultant Program Manager (Technical)

    Consultant Program Manager (Technical) (Current Employee) Hopkinton, MA

    ProsThe benefits are even or PAR with other high Tech companies.The culture is very good, very diverse, harmoniums, collaborative and creative. Everyone's ideas are heard and treated with respect. The training is outstanding, with both internal and external sources for training. Cross functional environment and heavy into project management and Six Sigma. They have awards for performance that is freely given. Job Well done!

    ConsSalary increases, promotions, stock incentives are slow, low, and sometimes not at all. Many who leave EMC is to get higher salaries and intensives. Some come back after they get the increases from other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSalary increases, promotions, and serious career discussions.

    EMC is a diverse workplace with great benefits and employees who genuinely care about their jobs.

    Associate Program Manager (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsMost of the people I work with (here in Santa Clara) are very open-minded, collaborative, and have the main goal in mind: Deliver the best possible service to our customers. The benefits are great. For example, when I took a maternity leave, our company offers the Short Term Disability Buy Up Program, and if enrolled, you are covered through MetLife which is EMC's own insurance, so as to make sure you receive your regular salary while you are on Maternity Leave. I thought this was awesome as many companies just leave you hanging, and you only get what the state is willing to give you.

    The managers here are great, and always willing to help you reach not only your career goals but personal goals as well. The company has a program where they will pay for your higher education and certifications as well. There are many perks to working here at EMC. My experience has been fantastic.

    We have free coffee, tea, soda, snacks, cereal and milk which is great! There is also a free gym on site.

    Did I mention VERY competitive pay?

    ConsThe cafeteria is not very good in our building (lacks in terms of quality and I've dealt with some, lets just say "moldy" situations)

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor some reason my bonuses were taken away, not sure why that happened, it was explained in a very fuzzy manner. I still received a raise but I'm unclear as to why I no longer receive quarterly bonuses or participate in the quarterly Goals program...?? Maybe some better communication is needed.
