I have been working at EMC full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company still has money in the bank. They've managed to be profitable over the years but they're products are becoming obsolete so put your seat belts on!

Cons

(1) The company has an unwritten policy of sending as many technical jobs to China as possible. There is currently a vast Chinese employee base and it's rapidly growing.
(2) The company posts many jobs on their website but have you ever tried applying? These are mostly fake job postings for the U.S. worker and U.S. applicants are ignored. Ultimately the company claims there is no qualified worker in the U.S. for these jobs and they hire cheap foreign workers to fill these positions.
(3) Annual layoff where they purge U.S. workers claiming they are deadweight in order to hire more Chinese and Indian workers. EMC does this at least twice per year.
(4) U.S. workers constantly are intimated by management and threatened with being laid off.
(5) No pay raises. Annual review is optional so you don't really know what's going on with your performance. That way they can blind-side you with a layoff claiming you're deadweight.
(6) Age discrimination. Most managers won't hire anyone over 35 years old.
(7) Internal group bickering and animosity.
(8) Back stabbing is rewarded. People constantly throw each other under the bus.
(9) Upper management priority is to fatten their wallets at the expense of company well-being.
(10) Company will soon be run by bean counter who is a hatchet man. He couldn't care less about the American worker. The current CEO ONLY cares about propping up the stock price and fattening his wallet before he ascends.
(11) Company has no creative thinkers and prefers to buy other companies to enhance the technology.
