Pros

EMC recruits the best, and expects the best from all of their professionals. Their benefits are some of the best.

Cons

EMC does not provide a stable work environment. Reorganization is the norm and the face of middle management changes just about every year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

EMC talks a good game for customer support and partner relationships, but their execution in those areas is practically non-existent. EMC is not growing faster because they are unwilling to embrace this fact.

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

    Pros

    There are opportunities to move within the company, though they can be hard to identify.
    EMC has some excellent training courses. Unlike other places I've worked, I was allowed to attend these. My favorite was on Politics and Power.

    Cons

    You're kept very busy. In my case, the manager and team that I had were good at taking suggestions and offering advices. But it was a really small team and didn't give me a chance to network with others in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was laid off because EMC wanted to focus on mobile and the cloud. Ironically I worked in a team developing a mobile application. I don't believe EMC has a firm strategy for using mobile as part of enabling their IT users.

    I worked at EMC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at EMC. EMC offered good pay and very nice benefits. My immediate work teams were always very competent and I always like my managers.

    Cons

    Multiple reorgs over the past 8 years has been disruptive. Also, there are a lot of management layers, and there has been way too much off-shoring of jobs. Waaaay too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in US-based resources. We're worth it.
