    Great place to work with friendly working environment. Good salary and consistent bonus program.

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

    Pros

    Everyone was nice and pleasant. The company is very traditional in a sense but also takes much from modern day companies and applies it well. Management was very kind and understanding of any issues and tried to help me out.

    Cons

    There needs to be more clarification on what people expect from you when you first start so you can have some direction
