    I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No matter what function or level, this is a fast paced company, with a ruthless focus on results. Take initiative and be passionate about your work. Lots of talented people work here, especially early in career.
    Can be an exciting an vibrant experience.
    Once you've earned your stripes, you also earn trust and flexibility.
    Progressive regarding remote working in most cases.

    Cons

    Command and control, hierarchical culture.
    Pervasive toxic leadership in some organizations.
    Lots of politics and emphasis on flash instead of substance.
    Some lifers have become complacent and are enabled to remain while offering little to no value.
    For an 'innovative' high tech company, they are laden with red tape and process.
    Resources are tight and headcount is almost impossible to grow. Even replacing a person who leaves voluntarily or is let go is difficult. This results in poor performers staying on longer than they should - even at very senior levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward healthy leaders rather than those that strong arm.
    Invest in management development, especially in the Sales and HR organizations.

    I worked at EMC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary, large workforce, global reach. Initially hired for one position but asked to do something else.

    Cons

    Moves too slow, too much decision-making by consensus, roles not defined clearly by management. Not an inspiring leadership team. Expected to work every evening and weekends. Management manages by email.
