    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I worked at EMC as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office space. Engaging coworkers. I found EMC to be a nice quiet place to work. Company outing were pretty interesting and a good break from work.

    Cons

    Some of the projects I worked on moved a bit too slowly for my liking. Also, the location where I was at was not ideal for a young person -- there wasn't much to do.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are generous. Many options

    Cons

    Compensation is poor for anyone nontechnical below Director level. Resistance to change - old way of doing things has been around forever. They say they want to change but it is very slow coming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new managers open to new ideas, real change. Need more flex time and work from home options.

    Pros

    Payments were on time, work as described.

    Rate should be higher for senior resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with contractors would be great. Lots of "last minute" stuff.

    I worked at EMC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Industry leader, great technology, bright people.

    Cons

    Knee-jerk reactions to Wall Street frowns lead to regular layoffs several times a year. New and aggressive VPs wanting to make a mark drive wholesale change without considering if it will really make everything better, seemingly to "make their mark". Low end of the usual tech perks, like stock awards. Mediocre raises. Abysmal employee communications - delayed merit increases by a quarter one year with NO announcement or discussion! It just didn't happen per their prior timeline!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to impress each other with how big your org is and how ruthless you can be with the restructuring axe! Give a darn about the people who are working their butts off so you can get your next big bonus. Maybe your senior Engineering staff is leaving for a reason!
