    Former Employee - Sales Account Manager

    I worked at EMC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely well run organization, lots of smart people and many very-very smart people, market leader in almost every category, top-tier reputation, potentials to shift your geo location or area of focus.

    Cons

    Typical big-company issues around being nimble and being able to react quickly to competitors and markets, heavy reliance on out-sourcing and offshore to reduce operation costs means much less internal responsiveness, customer complaints about off-shore support and development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're on the right track with where you're going and how you're doing it. Kudo's on being the "smartest" and well-run company i've ever been part of. The focus on employees and making it a world-class place to work is a good investment in the future.
