EMC More Concerned About Numbers than People

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Pleasanton, CA

I have been working at EMC

ProsGood benefits. Paychecks arrive on time in my account. Travel expenses are processed quickly.

ConsToo large a company, incredible bureaucracy making it frustrating to get the simplest things done.
Too much hierarchy, old style management. The hardware side has no idea how to run a software company. Company encourages yes-men and does not support innovation. Company is too focused on the lowest dollar cost vendor without accounting for the resource and efficiency benefits that are lost when you go with the low-bidder.

Advice to Senior ManagementDecide on a vision and execute. Trust your employees to make good decisions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
