Pros

Lots of opportunity, very active environment, able to make own choices. We're all generally aware of the shared direction.

Cons

Big company weight sometimes. Corporate IT needs to be more nimble.

Advice to Management

Spend more time enabling employees to be imaginative. Again, corp IT needs a revamp.

    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 Management

    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!
