I have been working at EMC full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good Work, team oriented, excellent products, benefits very good. Have worked here a number of years, developed good relationships.

Cons

Their MBO plan has its pros and cons. The payout is each quarter. If you are not a favorite of your boss, or slighted, then you get dinged. Your base salary is lower than the industry norm. I would rather get the higher salary, and skip the MBO. Some of the middle layer managment is inexperienced, which can affect your direction in the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow latitude amongst the employees so they can move around the company. They should respect engineers that deliver results, and stop dinging them for mistakes they made.

    I worked at EMC as a contractor (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.
