Pros

Still a growing company so there is opportunity for those who want to find it. Good leadership with clear vision have carved out a unique identity in the industry. Financial strength creates possibilities for the future. Stable succession plan in place.

Cons

Culture has evolved since the days of Dick Egan and some of the executives are more self-serving than in the past, plus there are a lot more of them. Decision-making is slower and communication between manager and IC levels is poor in some areas of the company. Everyone's My Cousin still applies.

Advice to Management

Hold executive relatives and referrals accountable for performance or manage them out like any other employee. For those reading this, it's a nit in an otherwise quality company but it is an opportunity for improvement. Improve communication from middle management to IC level.

    Pros

    The company is focused on customers and employees (not just Marketing but reality)
    High performance culture mixed with a relatively healthy dose of work/life balance (refreshing)
    The leadership team is respected by employees, customers and investors (not easy to balance)
    Consistently delivering great products, services and results (strong sense of accomplishment)

    Cons

    As is the case with almost every large corporation, there is too much complexity in the product offerings and internal processes.

    Advice to Management

    Joe, don't retire! You've got a very strong team, continue to expand thier responsibilities but stick around - we still need you.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Many educational opportunities to advance career or learn more about EMC. Also alot of opportunity for promotions.

    Cons

    Big company - so lots of red tape. It takes a long time for processes to complete

    Advice to Management

    Need more women in top executive team. Women recruits notice this when looking at EMC as a place to work.
