    Pros

    Autonomy, autonomy, autonomy. You are your own part of the business. EMC lets you own it and build your own world within the organization. Truly a great place to work.

    Cons

    Organization change will occur from time to time (~4 years or so) as they optimize the business structure. Some flexibility and adaptation may be necessary.

    Pros

    If you don't ask question, think or act for yourself, and you don't mind taking orders, you'll be fine here. Plus, it looks good on your resume because other employers know if you can make it here you'll make it anywhere.

    Cons

    Politics, nepotism, unethical behavior, from the interview process to the end, etc. not just myself but other reps were promised and agreed to one opportunity, but got another. Unless you know your manager and his manager and his manager personally, I wouldn't trust them.

    Advice to Management

    I think the culture is too far gone... I don't think change is wanted or possible.

    Flexible Schedule Lots of intern events Great networking opportunities Mentors are provided Housing provided if needed Relocation paid for

    Cons

    Very easy to feel lost in the shuffle of such a large company. Rare to have 1x1 conversations with higher level management.

    Advice to Management

    If possible provide one on site manager during the on-boarding process.

    Pros

    Ability to be self sufficient, goals are well defined and we have the autonomy to do what we need to to achieve the goals. The combination of salary, benefits. equity and vacation is fantastic.As leaders we do our best to ensure our teams are well recognized for the work they do and we are encouraged to lead not manage.

    Cons

    EMC has intentionally created product overlaps to limit gaps in our portfolio. These overlaps can make designing a solution more complicated than necessary for a customer. Our SEs do a great job at simplifying these overlaps and minimize the confusion.

    Advice to Management

    We have a lot of cash in the bank, increase M&A activity to continue growing our string of pearls, to further increase share holder value.

    Pros

    - Work-Life balance is more on the life side than work. - Company is likely to remain around as a hardware company. - Should you end up on the chopping block, severance package is above average. - Compensation & Benefits are on-par with middle-of-the-road companies.

    Cons

    - Company culture is clearly out of date compared to top tech companies; lack of transparency, excessive process bureaucracies. - Federation = silo operation = billion dollar company that operates like multiple million dollar companies that don't necessary operate on the same page. - Not really an innovation company as much as a company that gambles on the next homerun acquisition; once it's acquired, the innovation ends as the company doesn't focus on organic development. - As an established company that focuses more on short-term earning guidance than innovation and long-term breakthroughs, expect R&D projects or older / acquired groups to be tossed out the Window if it sees any bumps.

    Advice to Management

    None; the company is doomed to mediocrity, so it'll still be around to keep the incompetent Sr. / middle management around, but it will never be a top company that can attract new elite talents and break new grounds. It'll eventually fade into irrelevance as the cloud and SDN landscape fully takes place.

    Pros

    Ability to work directly with customers, while still managing high tech engineers. In the right organizations, EMC rewards employees for going above and beyond.

    Cons

    In management, the expectation is long work days. Weekend work is a regular.

    Advice to Management

    None
