Pros

The company has a powerful sales force. The money keeps rolling in, which means bonuses are paid consistently. There are some really smart engineers working there.

Cons

Working on the west coast is like being the red-headed step child. They generally don't really "get" California. Some groups (like Greenplum) are really cool to work for. Others (like the Atmos team) are not fun at all.

Advice to Management

The cloud is passing you by. You are suffering from the innovator's dilemma. Give up on mistakes like Atmos and focus on the real thing.

    Pros

    Growth, education, recognition. If you take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves, you'll do well. Know your audience in all aspects and understand that EMC (not unlike others) is a Sales driven company.

    Cons

    Constantly "on." EMC hires very type A personalities with inherently strong work ethic. It's no wonder that people are always working and answering emails whether in the middle of the night or often during vacation. It's our nature.


  2. My experience at EMC was challenging and satisfying. Great peer support and knowledge sharing.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, great training and professional development support. Lots of challenges and opportunities to learn and advance knowledge and skills.

    Cons

    Work schedules can be grueling at times and keeping up with the broad and deep technology areas and remaining "up to speed" at all times can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.
