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

Pros

- Primary offices are all in Massachusetts, so there are opportunities to grow and be promoted without having to move around.
- Employees work hard, but there is still work-life balance
- Good benefits

Cons

- HQ is in Hopkinton, so a bit of a drive to Boston
- Company's strengths are Sales and Engineering, so if you are not in one of those functions, your work will have less emphasis.

    I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not many good reasons to work there; they still allow remote workers and for some people to work from home. Didn't have to relocate to take this job.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. Barely no women in exec roles, and certainly no people of color. Some chief leaders don't have degrees and they are very old school- don't use smart phone, etc. This all reflects in their behavior. They say they can't find qualified women to promote. People are extremely rude. Entry level people have aggressive tone, say things like "take it up with the boss". Very disrespectful of seniority and experience. Foul language is often used in the workplace. Doesn't really seem like a high tech company. It's like working in an old fashioned steel plant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A diverse workforce will add some innovation and balance of approach. It will bring EMC into the modern era where people act professionally, they don't curse or tell sexist jokes in the workplace. It is because all your senior leaders look and act the same, that they find this behavior acceptable. It is easy to see that EMC started >30 years ago as a furniture company. They are not high tech!

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

    Pros

    Great Products, Great Name. You will learn a lot about storage and can really build a good foundation.

    Cons

    Everyone is like sharks. Little to no Diversity in idea, people or cultures. Not very fun place to work. Everyone is middle aged or older so no going out for drinks. Be prepared to work over 60+ hours a week. Very little resources and very little rewards or recognition.
