Pros

The storage, virtualization, and cloud businesses are growing significantly, and these core areas are perceived of as leaders in the industry. This makes the core business area at EMC an attractive place to establish a career.

Cons

The Documentum division feels like it is in a death spiral and I would avoid working for this division.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spin off Documentum, if it's not too late, and find some committed and sensible managers to re-establish its lost ground in content management.

    Pros

    Large Stable Company, Good Locations

    Cons

    Large Company, Management Structure is ancient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think agility, think start-up. The only thing cool at EMC for the past few years has been its checkbook and VMware

    Pros

    great place - good areas within the company and good people - great opportunities for hard work and knowledge gain in world class areas.

    Cons

    Be aware of typical incompentent managers or directors - horrible backstabbing managers/directors who don't know how they are in management positions they are only looking to cover for themselves - not their direct reports - cover and document and protect.yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    open your mind and take a lot of team building classes - stop misleading upper management as to the status of projects and different efforts going on - you can't fix what you don't acknowledge.
