I worked at EMC

Pros

The company offers flexible work hours/location - could telecommute once a week and start late,leave late on other days to beat traffic. Offers good large company benefits, though time-off could be better. Lot of coporate benefits available at head quarters in Boston, not in bay area.

Cons

Too silo'ed, corporate head quarters in east coast is like different company. With the new software acquisitions, in different places, info aleays has to flow bottom-top-bottom. Not much lateral communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

improve transparency in decision making, delegate. management jobs seem to get guaranteed promotions senior,group /director levels; but no such luck for Technical ladder.

    I have been working at EMC

    Pros

    first job out of college so nothing great. One thing good about working at emc is you get to work from home. There is cubes or anything but your own home office. I think this is one of the best thing working at emc. Besides this, nothing great I could think of.

    Cons

    Pay is not great compare to how many hours you work. 60hr/wk. At the begining, they tell you alot of good things at EMC during the hiring process. But, one you get in, you have no where to go. Mngt is always trying to make you do work at night, weekend and during vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More recognition. When people work hard, they need to be recognized instead of mngt.

    I have been working at EMC

    Pros

    Very good benefits other than pay. Easy to balance life and work. Not very aggressive in deliverables. If one can have good terms with management it is easy sailing.

    Cons

    No challenges. Upper management and middle management is disconnected regarding company's future goals and objectives. The lower management is completely in dark about future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clear communication channel instead of pretending to be having one. Remove inefficient weak links in the middle management.
