    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Franklin, MA

    I worked at EMC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Great training opportunities.
    2. Bonuses paid out quarterly.
    3. Bonus objectives tied to management bonuses
    4. Work from home program

    Cons

    - Management plays favorites. Reactions are usually emotional. (I've witnessed numerous employees inform their management they want to look for new internal employment opportunities and then be told they have X amount of weeks to find a job or they will be laid-off)
     - Employee lay-offs are personal and not based on performance. If your manager likes you, you're safe. Many managers give satisfactory reviews but secretly build cases of negative performance that they can pull out years later to use during a layoff.
    - People are hired for certain abilities/knowledge but received no training on how to do their particular job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak with a sample of employees directly to root out bad Directors/Managers to head off morale issues
