I have been working at EMC part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Flexible working hours. Management made sound financial decisions during difficult financial times (2009). Instead of a layoff, they cut all salaries temporarily until the economic outlook improved. Decent benefits including ESPP. Vacation accrual is fair, especially for employees in California.

Cons

EMC has an east coast corporate culture. It doesn't provide the same level of legal support for foreign nationals who are seeking H1B visas as its west coast based competitors. There appears to be some disparity between employee perks in different divisions. Internet security on VPN is too stringent. Outlook is the only supported e-mail application. I would prefer to use Mozilla Thunderbird.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More transparency into management decisions.

    I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Learning is continual, cutting-edge products, ability to shift between companies within the EMC umbrella.

    Cons

    Not enough reward for the 'hair on fire' work effort. Cheap ($$) managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to spend money on legitimate expenses to grow your employees.
