Pros

Despite being a huge company, it still has some of the good things about smaller ones. Closer management doesn't get in the way of the tech guys, and also there is some freedom regarding shifts, occasionally working outside the office, etc. although this may depend a lot on location and immediate manager you report to.

So far the company has been meeting and exceeding investor and internal profit forecasts, so bonuses are being paid to 100% and it seems to be something to last for some quarters yet.

Cons

Being a huge, listed company. it has the usual excess of red tape, duplicities, unnecessary meetings, too a deep hierarchical structure and the usual dose of divide between those closer to the field and those in the higher managerial positions. Not too impacting on a day to day basis, though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher management may be too confident into current company profitability , but that rests on the right decisions being made years ago. If the decisions being made now at not right, we may only see the outcome some years from now, when there is little chance to change track. Input from the field and general staff may not be taken into account enough for the perfect options to be considered.

    I worked at EMC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Golden days were 6 months back when teams used to collaborate and work. It was a techie's paradise. Teams had great caliber.

    Cons

    One fine day you reach office and the HR stands right behind you to say that "YOU ARE FIRED". Just write your resignation and say Bye Bye to every1. No Notice and in a second you get to taste the feeling of unemployment. Very unreliable company. RSA used to be great but now its gone... Only Maintenance projects with the grace of MN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow Up... Stop Firing People..Invest in them... You guys are not doing decent job and wish to cover it up with FIRING people.. i wish someday you get fired...
