I worked at EMC full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

1) Work life balance.
2) Amazing company for women.( endless work from home option )
3) facilities( pick up / drop off ,Cab service, canteen)
4) company is well positioned and well focused
5) every one gets good ratings, no lay offs, job is secure and steady.
6) Good place to retire with out much hassle.

Cons

1) work is mostly maintenence type, no R&D , no new product build up.
2) Managers are non-engineers, pure people managers,no engineering mindset and focus.
3) delivery focused, no dedicated labs for teams( this results in less real time testing and more bugs when shipped )
4) Awards are automatically given to all ( there is pressure among managers and teams to nominate and give awards )
5) Not much growth in the technical ladder. ( insufficient technical expertise among managers to judge technical quality among engineers ).
6) No prototypes built and experimented.
7) Most meetings are like a ritual

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management does not always mean working with excel / power point...more engineering focus required. 80% technical , 20% management upto Sr.Management level will help the company grow.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about their products, solutions, and processes.
    You make a lot of friends with your co-workers, and customers.
    You earn a good salary

    Cons

    You have to work a lot, including nights, weekends, holidays, and possibly during your vacations you have to do some work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe EMC have to hire more people in order for their employees to have a more balance Work/Life. Another important thing is that EMC have to look/search inside for talented people to cover their job positions requirements, instead of bringing the new managers from the outside. EMC have to give their employees an opportunity to grow.

    Pros

    It is a large company with multiple directions to steer ones career in. It is a company that encourages its employees to move around once they come on board. It is a company that encourages continuing education on all its products, processes and initiative and backs it up by paying for it. Finally, it is the industry leader in its core competency.

    Cons

    There are too many disparate applications involved in the day to day operations of the business which can sometimes make on-boarding difficult. There is too much emphasis put on utilizing off shore resources. While that may add to the bottom line it does sometime impact ones ability to adequately service a client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to nurture and develop the team that is in place now, utilize off shore resource only on those things that do not require day to day interaction with the client base and find a way to eliminate at least half of the current toolbox by finding the right integrated application stack to service the business.
