    - like playing point the finger? it was invented here. no accountability.

    Pros

    probably and just probably job is little safe .

    Cons

    Management is making lot of money but same is not true for engineers.

    promotion and salary hike is not good and most of the time given to those people who are close to the people in management,no real estimation of effort put into the work.

    don't join if you have any other option specially networker in Bangalore.

    Advice to Management

    grow up stop doing politics it will kill the organization in the long run.

    Pros

    Good benefits that are evaluated and improved each year. Well respected company. Sales team is very strong.

    Cons

    Management is confused on what to do. This is company that sells an on-premise storage hardware and the market is no longer growing. They are searching for an identity. Re-orgs and name changes for divisions is common. They encourage multiple teams to work on the same project and don't mind the inefficiency in that. Hiring practices are atrocious. Salaries are way behind the competition. Too many acquisitions without proper integration, so you'll work with teams that aren't even on the network yet, don't use the same tools, etc. Facilities in some locations are great and in others they are way below standard. There is a reason the stock price has been stagnant for the last 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the vision and actually get behind it. You can't expect to compete with the big boys but not actually invest in it or keep the people around that can affect change. Pay competitive salaries and fix the government red-tape approach to every aspect of the business.

    Constant layoffs and internal re-orgs make EMC tough to recommend. Internal politics some parts of the co. are awful.

    Pros

    If your in the right internal organization you can have a great work experience.

    Cons

    The fact that EMC reorganizes groups constantly make staying in a good situation impossible. No pay increase to speak of after 3 years. Also, don't think if you work your tail off you can't get laid off. Hard work and dedication don't get you much at EMC.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your people like robots. You give lip service to "home life balance" and then make everyone feel like they have to take the job home every night or stay long hours. Really?

    Cons

    EMC is still an east coast company, every decision requires a 6am call (9am on east coast) or requires flying to the Boston area (sucks in Winter)

    Advice to Management

    More independence for west coast organizations.

    Pros

    Absolute work-life balance if you know bootlick your bosses

    Cons

    Warlords like local management, who thinks they own the company. Very disrespectful to working levels. To inclusion on decision making, it's all about the management.

    Advice to Management

    This the 21st century, not the 50s or 60s. The olds ways will not work, be it for the customer or internal team.

    Pros

    Offers Extensive training, travel locally and internationally, technology savvy, conferences around the world

    Cons

    Need to hire more women in management roles, boys club mentality, moved around after reporting a workplace ethical issue, removed from that team and eventually "laid off" although there were plenty of jobs available

    Advice to Management

    Take employee concerns about workplace ethics seriously and don't penalize employees for it.
