Big silos, often separated by many levels -- many people with their own agendas.

Pros

Good salaries and benefits as well as fairly open to home offices.

Cons

As stated above, silos of separate products competing more than working together to make everything coordinated and better. Counter-productive politics and many people working towards their own agendas (themselves).

Stock hasn't done anything interesting for many years so this isn't much of an incentive. Company's so big that very few people can affect this price or really make much of a difference anywhere in the company. Decisions are usually pretty slow and not always the right ones...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't reward counter-productive politics and connect the silos better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the department could benefit greatly from a re-org. Most of the people in ES have been in the same position for many years and are doing just enough to get by with little or no desire/drive to do any more.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, training, opportunities throughout the company, growth, exciting technology, and worldwide exposure are some of the pros of working at EMC.

    Cons

    EMC is a driven company meaning that there are constant deadlines always looming. At times short term MBOs drive work that conflicts with long term goals. There has a explosion of management positions over the last 5 years and more bureaucracy has come with it. Getting decisions made can take a long time. Pay is at industry "standards" now so compensation is not as high here as other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While outsourcing can and does work in some areas there are other areas that outsourcing undermines productivity and the relationships with customers. Learn from the examples of Dell, Comcast, and others that outsourcing in the wrong areas can be disruptive to the company.
