    Great technology
    Motivated tech team
    Seasoned sales reps
    Nice office
    Hard and fast paced workers who want to win

    Cons

    Political
    Fear of the unkown ( aquistion creating a shark tank like work environment)
    Executive team removed and lacks ability to provide senior level direction to lower employees. Really were was the management team?
    Too many people suceeding by not taking responsiblity for there own actions and mitigating there actions or failures by throwing people under the bus.
    Acceptance of new employees from other company cultures is not good.
    Upper management could use some diversity. Company needs diversity in sales and other customer facing areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great company built by very passionate people. It is not ok to allow management teams to fight and have turf wars and then allow lower level employees to get caught in the middle. Allow your employee's to grow and if they make a mistake please stop the internal dog fights and gang wars. Take responsiblity and work to bring your groups together as a team.

    I worked at Isilon, A Division of EMC full-time

    Pros

    Really great talent and an interesting technology

    Cons

    Upper Management in constant turmoil and strife and are intensely nepotic. Among some, a culture of disrespect for subordinates. Also as a result, there's sometimes a certain degree of conformity among mid to lower management levels as they fall in line to avoid getting on the bad side of anyone with power.
    Product not always terribly reliable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe EMC will improve the situation with upper management...
