    Great benefits, but company skimps on raises

    Pros

    The people are great and hours are flexible. Benefits are really good--10k tuition reimbursement per year, with a one time 5k cash advance to get you started. The HSA is a great deal for healthy young employees.

    Cons

    If you're hired out of college, EMC pretty much gives you no incentive to stay. The raises are a joke, even for high performers, and even after promotions. A senior software engineer that was hired out of school and promoted will make much less than a senior software engineer hired from another company, regardless of talent.

    It's demoralizing when you get top ratings on your performance review, but your salary doesn't come close to what the market is offering. When I left EMC, my new company offered me 20k+ more. I know many talented engineers hired out of school that fell into this situation as well.

    It's still a good company to work for out of school because the entry level salary is competitive and benefits are top notch (especially if you pursuing a part time degree). But keep your skill sets sharp and an eye out on the market salary. After 2-3 years the difference will probably be big enough to lure you away.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain top talent hired out of college, pay them a competitive salary and keep it competitive. If you wait until they start job searching to make a counter offer, it'll be too late.
