    Pros

    I like the culture the best. And the freebies. The EMC freebies were really good.
    Also the salaray was more than I thought I would ever get.

    Cons

    Competitive co-worker philosophy. A lot of internal competition for easy jobs. Plenty of work to do. Maybe not so good bonus for me.

    Advice to Management

    Pay key peops good bonus. High saraly not enuff to retain key talent. Joe Tucci could retire any day now, so watch you back.

    Pros

    - The information available is a gold mine.
    - Focused on hardware a lot. Software is second priority
    - If you are self driven with communication as good as JFK you can do wonders
    - Once established in your comfort zone you can zip

    Cons

    - Management is pathetic
    - Talk about making usability as crisp as Apple's but remain in talks
    - Software is a foster child here. Don't bother
    - Lazy management & when deadlines approach they expect to move mountains

    Advice to Management

    - Keep you best performers within. Don't force them to leave
    - Remember 80/20 principle ??? Yup 20% are those who actually shoulder the critical work, take care of them.
    - Value technical skills
    - We are a product company, don't behave cheap. Compensation is an important factor in job market.
