I have been working at EMC full-time for less than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at EMC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, flexible schedule, work from home, people (most, anyway)

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, politics, too many high-paid directors and VPs doing nothing of value, too many reorgs for the sake of reorgs, ultimately position offshored to China (an English technical writing job, no less!) with no warning or inkling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know the value of your employees and choose quality work, accumulated knowledge, and breadth and depth of experience over mindless "cost savings."
