Good place to work, not cutting edge

Current Employee - Principal Product Manager  in  Pleasanton, CA
Current Employee - Principal Product Manager in Pleasanton, CA

I have been working at EMC

Pros

1) Mngt actually takes care of you; Salary was recently cut by 5%, but they compensated with other things, like 5 extra paid days of vacation
2) Ownership: Like most places, it's political, but once ownership is established, everyone gets in line to support product delivery
3) Open to new ideas: no idea is taken off the table until it's fully vetted

Cons

1) Company is not a "fast mover"; does not identify new trends quickly
2) business model is in transition; competition has narrowed the gap, open source has taken away the lower tier of the market and classic disrupters are coming from Google and Adobe

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Break the product organization down to smaller, more tactial teams to quickly deliver product
Create "silos of expertise" to sell to customers

    Pros

    Well known and an industry leader

    Poor advancement opportunities. The company is attempting to move most of its talent overseas, losing one of the most popular reasons EMC is the chosen storage provider.
