    I worked at EMC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Leadership is always on top of how to keep EMC in the race and will invest (R&D or acquistion) to remain there

    Cons

    At the end of the day this is a product company (hardware manufacturing and software development) and after gaining the majority of my professional experience in a Big 5 Consulting world, it was difficult to see the company transform the consulting organization to a model which delivers differently that a pure consulting firm would

    I have been working at EMC

    Pros

    EMC has great benefits and it is a market leader. When you say you work at EMC most people know what you are talking about. Employment is very stable.

    Cons

    The path to promotion is not clearly defined. Many people have worked at the company for decades and have no intention leaving, so you can wait a long time to get promoted. There is a lot of talk about career development, but it is very engineering focused. If you are not an engineer, you are not important. Leadership is focused on revenue targets and not staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees help you. There needs to be a culture of personal improvement in order to get the most out of employees.
