    Great company to work for with great benefits, vision and strategy. Very focused on developing and architecting to the future.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. You will be given a lot of responsibility but still have the opportunity to shape your position as you see fit. You will never be faulted for taking an action. The cardinal sin working here is to see a problem and not to take an action. Great career opportunities.

    Cons

    You will never be faulted for taking and action - even if it is the wrong and inappropriate action. At the boiler room lower levels, this is not an issue, but some in Sr. management need to be more careful because at that level it looks a lot like flailing. The quality of Sr. level management has declined in recent years. This used to be a strength now it is becoming a detractor.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing catch up. Get more strategic and start redefining the industry through innovative technology so we can leap frog the competition again.

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits, & people. Market leader in storage and recognizes transformation is needed to stay in the game.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy and old school thinking, difficult to move new concepts forward. Company culture is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt transformation quicker, reduce old school traditional storage thinking, company is too big become more agile, stay on track with Federation strategy.
