Pros

There were plenty of opportunities to have major influence in the design, and construction of a number of major products.

They do a good job of working across geographic boundaries (better than other major software companies I've worked for.)

Cons

Information sharing is not something that I think the company does very well as a whole. In fact, getting access to basic reporting structure was difficult when I started. They are improving, but need to improve much more to encourage the free flow of ideas and foster more creativity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Speed the transition to a more agile company and tear down barriers that prevent free information flow across groups. Invest more in getting architects and product managers to work cross-group.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, wide spectrum of technical opportunities, interaction and communication with many teams in different engineering areas that is beneficiary to your professional career development.

    Cons

    Decision making process is terribly slow and depends a lot on people who sit too high above to be reached and to react promptly on certain case or situation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate authority and decision making to those who are at lower than SVP levels. Do not conduct restructuring every half a year and even before getting results of the previous one.

  2.  

    Fast paced, lots of things to learn, lots of smart people, life-work-balance is somewhat lacking.

    I have been working at EMC

    Pros

    Great technology and recent M&A's. Forward thinking vision and alot of smart people around you.

    Cons

    Can get very hectic so work-like-balance will suffer. It's not unusual for people to 60-70 hour weeks. Internal IT system is archaic and is a nightmare to navigate. Finding relevant information is a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the development of the partner community. Have a more realistic Sales Reps to TC's ratio. Have a more structured onboarding process for new hires. Fix the ancient internal IT system.
