    I have been working at EMC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've never worked at a company that put such an emphasis on getting their employees trained well. The benefits and culture is very generous and active. They truly want a customer to have a great experience in every aspect of their interaction with the company.

    Cons

    As with any large company, there can be red tape to cut through to get things approved, such as travel, team events, and so on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline some of the processes, otherwise you're doing a great job.
