I worked at EMC

Pros

Solid benefits, solid pay. Exposure to emerging technology. Excellent support system for problem escalation. Free training on EMC products (excellent Video ILT Series.) When consulting, very little hassle from management regarding timecards, time off, and other logistics. EMC World is a blast.

Cons

If consulting, take care to not sign on with a difficult customer or be placed in permanent residency. These situations tend to see high turnover and EMC simply cannot afford to move you out. Take particular care in the federal sector., aim for commercial if at all possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leverage employee skill-set in the consulting arena by assigning them with matching customers. The right fit for the right employee will reward EMC and their customer in the long-run.

    I have been working at EMC

    Pros

    If you are interested in seeing the future of technology, then EMC is the front seat of your dreams.

    If you like to take vacation time, you will have the opportunity.

    Everyone here is happy with their job.

    Cons

    It is big like a bank which bought 50 smaller ones, so working here with another "team" is like trying to get a bad tenant to pay the rent.

    Politics

    Everyone is ALWAYS on Vacation.

    It seems some employees spend all their time getting others to do their work for them or pretending they are doing lots themselves. Most commonly in marketing where they will benefit from good results BECAUSE of good products and services regardless of their projects and initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organizational hierarchy could be better explained.

    I have been working at EMC

    Pros

    EMC is one of the top IT infrastructure companies. Decent people, good products, huge install and partner base. Good place to go from the ground up to the top and make a career. There are lots of long time EMCers who are very well off financially and have moved from entry level into senior management. EMC sales still has a very strong reputation for being one of the best. If you can prove your mettle here, then you likely will succeed elsewhere. Other companies will want to hire you.

    Cons

    Large company means beaurocracy around certain policies. Large company means complexity and disorganization. Acquired companies are often forgotten and discarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on overall vision for specific types of technology more and execute on that vision. Don't just buy companies to push revenue in a nebulous fashion.
