Pros

Good training opportunities if you have time to take advantage of it. There are a lot to learn in this large company. The benefits are above average compared to similar sized company.

Cons

Large company red tape can hinder some progress. There seem to be some secrecy on plans, direction and workforce changes; not transparent enough in some cases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage more autonomy among employees to do more proactive projects.

    Everything must change(EMC)
    A lot of execs stills stuck with the manufacturing mentality. Vision of CEO is not translated into deliverables and goals correctly.
    Management resistant about flexible hours, but this varies drastically across the departments

    I worked at EMC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can get lots of EMC storage training that usually cost a lot to customers for free.
    It can be great if you work for the right manager.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism and playing favorite and micromanagement. Not much opportunity to advance when your new manager bring in his favorite from another grooming to be the next manager. It make the rest of the team lose morale when your merit and ability and seniority got overtaken by favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    open a channel or suggestion box that employee can safely provide 360 degree feedback

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
