    I have been working at EMC full-time

    Pros

    This is the *only* company I have ever been in where they are asking you "What do you want to do next?"

    In doing so, they are talking about advancement. This was evident in my initial interview where the interview team told me that I was overqualified. I was disappointed because I thought I was being shown the door, but instead, they brought me to a manager who ran a division where my skillset was a match (and better paid!)

    Fast forward a few years later, and my current manager is looking to set me up for my next career step. Granted, I work very, very hard with little free time at work, but at the end of the day, I go home in time to have dinner, or enjoy whatever life has to offer outside of work.

    Easy? No. But you are definitely captain of your own career there and by working hard and executing on expectations you put yourself in a position to succeed.

    Cons

    The only real thing that seems to be a con is that it is a large company. Well over 20 billion dollars each year in revenue, you are at some level a number. If the overall corporate strategy changes, you could find yourself unemployed as your division no longer exists. I think that's the case in life though.
    As my dad always said, "You pays yer monies and you takes yer chance!"

    I have been working at EMC full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    flexible work style, and no big pressure on the deliverable. life balanced. free coffee and instance noodle.

    Cons

    so quite in the office, and no advanced technology. re-org happened frequently. Lunch is bad and not free.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep the team stable and communicable.
