Current Employee - Senior Technical Writer
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Benefits are good and they offer great tuition reimbursement.

Cons

The salary you are hired at is the one you will stay at your entire time here. Do not expect substantial pay increases. It's EMC's culture of fear that keeps they on top of the industry. You are belittled, looked down on, and shunned to make you feel insignificant and not worthy of working here. Many people stay simply because they're afraid to leave. The socialites and schmoozers get ahead while the employees who actually produce are simply handed down more work. You're wasting you're time if you think your hard work will actually pay off.

Advice to Management

Take care of your people and they will take care of you.
