Former Employee - Technical Writer in Pleasanton, CA

I worked at EMC as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Very flexible schedule wise
My manager was fantastic in giving me interesting tasks
Friendly and diverse workforce
Free drinks from the refrigerator

Cons

Budget is very tight and limited
Contractors aren't treated the same as regular employees - I had to chase down HR to get them to approve my extended contract on many occasions and was left to my own devices

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My managers were all great - they even tried to find other departments to hire me once my contract was up. Keep up the good work in noticing talent.

    I worked at EMC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None! ....I guess the only thing is the pay and that you'll learn a lot!

    Cons

    Be prepared to be treated like crap, work 50-70 hour weeks and get no recognition for it, and after taking the time to learn EMC's technology and industry, to be let go for some one with more experience...perhaps in the corporate office, the experience is different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to get to know your employees and see their potential. Don't ruin their careers when you see the first sign that they don't have enough technical knowledge about a product. Also, avoid defamation, and fraudulent claims on the PIP plans. Don't set your employees up to fail, or make promises and agreements where you mislead them. I know former EMC employees who are considering suing their former managers or EMC.

    Former Employee - Healthcare AE in Birmingham, AL

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

    Pros

    All the tools necessary to do the job; great marketing support

    Cons

    Management style comes from the top down; micro management to an extreme; managers try to make all sales staff fit the same mold; even if you are successful, you take hits for missing a checkbox

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that healthcare is a different business from retail; you've invested in experienced HC sales people, now you need to invest in HC experienced and focused managers

    Recommends
