Pros

Co-workers were great about expressing gratitude for work performed. Not many people at other companies get how important that is, that your work was appreciated. Never had that problem at EMC. Workload was self-managed so not too much stress or micromanagement. Lots of different types of work, so could try different things often.

Cons

Stability was lacking; 7 managers in 6 years. They had no idea how position fit or how to integrate it. Had to "promote my own service" within the division and company. Managers were often not in the same city and focused elsewhere, so direction as to priority, career path or career improvement was almost non-existent.

Advice to Management

Integrate all employees as well as you can. Too often people in support roles can be set adrift for not being part of the core team (sales, engineering).

    Pros

    All Inclusive, Superb Management, Promotes Free Thinking, Rewards Talent, Competitive Compensation, Flexible, Promotes Team Over Individual, Career Opportunities

    Cons

    Large company, which is not for everyone. Keep in mind that small fish in a big sea can grow. It is all about what you make of your opportunities in life.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    EMC encourages employees to review the company and management yearly and in turn they attempt to make changes in a few targeted problematic areas based on the results. The company understands its place in the market and continues to do well. Excellent benefits for employees including quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Upper management churn in the division I worked in sometimes went from bad to worse. Communication to the lower levels was poor and sometimes it seems decisions were made without the big picture locally. Distance in locations very likely played a roll in the disconnects.

    Advice to Management

    Paying closer attention to details in the lower parts of a division and better communication would go a long way to changing an image that was shared by many. Obviously this is targeted to a specific division and it is not a reflection on the company as a whole. My experience with EMC as a company was outstanding.
