I have been working at Isilon, A Division of EMC full-time

Pros

Excellent benefits
Good location
Lots of free food
Some truly great colleagues - smart and fun

Cons

This is not a safe place for women -- the only areas where women can advance here are hr and support roles. Corporate events include photo ops with skimpily clad cheerleaders. Women, no matter what their job titles, are expected to coordinate meetings and do administrative work. They're assumed to be non-technical. Women who seek to increase technical involvement are chastised for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a sincere assessment of your treatment of women in your organization.

    I have been working at Isilon, A Division of EMC as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Now I'm only an intern for a short amount of time @ Isilon so I can't claim to know too much, but the following are a few of the awesomeness I have seen:
    - Isilon have grown to be a billion dollar company in a very short time and is quickly become a major player in cluster computing.
    - Isilon engineering crew is really talented.
    - Promotions are frequently given. I have seen 6 promotions announcement e-mail during the first 2 months of my internship.
    - Comfortable workplace with lots of fun people and a motto of play hard-work hard.

    Cons

    Some complaints about minor annoyance when joining with EMC and integrating into a larger corporate settings. Otherwise I haven't had enough time here year to find out.
