Pros

Most of the people I work with (here in Santa Clara) are very open-minded, collaborative, and have the main goal in mind: Deliver the best possible service to our customers. The benefits are great. For example, when I took a maternity leave, our company offers the Short Term Disability Buy Up Program, and if enrolled, you are covered through MetLife which is EMC's own insurance, so as to make sure you receive your regular salary while you are on Maternity Leave. I thought this was awesome as many companies just leave you hanging, and you only get what the state is willing to give you. The managers here are great, and always willing to help you reach not only your career goals but personal goals as well. The company has a program where they will pay for your higher education and certifications as well. There are many perks to working here at EMC. My experience has been fantastic. We have free coffee, tea, soda, snacks, cereal and milk which is great! There is also a free gym on site. Did I mention VERY competitive pay?

Cons

The cafeteria is not very good in our building (lacks in terms of quality and I've dealt with some, lets just say "moldy" situations)

Advice to Management

For some reason my bonuses were taken away, not sure why that happened, it was explained in a very fuzzy manner. I still received a raise but I'm unclear as to why I no longer receive quarterly bonuses or participate in the quarterly Goals program...?? Maybe some better communication is needed.

    Pros

    1. The company makes products at all the layers of enterprise storage solution. It has cloud and virtualization through VMWare, Security through RSA, File and Block storage (EMC Core), Flash storage, Backup solutions (Data Domain), Big Data (Greenplum) and so on. The company has a huge potential to make a sell these solutions as a package and monopolize the storage industry. 2. Makes products to cater to everyone. Low, Mid and High range storage solutions - which has the potential to make EMC products ubiquitous. 3. The company recognizes talent and good performance is always rewarded - a gesture that is highly important for the company to retain talent. 4. Most teams are made of people who have been at EMC for 25+ years who bring rich experience and knowledge to every discussion that happens in the team. 5. The company holds nearly a third of the market share in storage and is growing each year. When you have such safety net for your job, there are very little distractions for your creative thinking. 6. The company has one of the best benefits package in the industry.

    Cons

    1. With big companies and so many mergers, there is very little uniformity across different components. That leads to huge challenges in performing even a simple operation of checking in your code. One gets the feeling that the management is not doing enough to make this process smoother. 2. Compensation is, at best, average. This is not the company for you if you want to make quick bucks.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Industry leader. Trying to change.

    Cons

    Trying to transform, but change is hard. Very political. Lots of "Lifers" (15+ years) that are resistent to change and out of touch. Lay-offs bi-annually. Cash cow (storage) is flat to declining. Good Federation strategy at least on outside, but from the inside it is just window dressing... for every "cooperation" program announced at EMC World there is a competing one.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate don't imitate. You are paying way too much for start-ups. Ask yourself what value are your managers (VP and Sr. Directors) are really bringing to the table? Trust but verify what they are telling you Lots of duplication, inefficiencies and down right boondoggling.
