    Pros

    You get to work on technology which is very cutting edge and innovative.The competition with other industry players is very fierce.

    Cons

    The technology high is very cutting edge and innovative but may not not be well know to the outside world too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recruiting from the more top rated universities than concentrating on the second tier universities too much.Also bring in a lot more younger blood to the organization.

    Pros

    Decent Pay. As far as health insurance, time-off, and other benefits EMC is top notch. Excellent talent around you.

    Cons

    Too much outsourcing of jobs. Management leaves you in the dark of going ons. Not easy to advance a career at EMC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid level managers were decent to work for. Senior level managers are mis-leading and clueless. Don't treat employees with respect

    Pros

    I started working for EMC as a Technical Recruiter approximately three years ago and I absolutely love my job. EMC is such a great place to work as they are care a great deal about their employees and reward those who perform well. I commutte 2-3 hours per day and I do it because I love going to work every day and enjoy working with my team.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the industry EMC is a very fast paced company and sometimes can require working long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do continue to keep all employees at all levels in the loop.
