    Pros

    Work with smart people on hard problems. Managers don't tend to micromanage, and you are pretty free to set your schedule for the most part. Friday beer bashes!

    Cons

    Quite a bit of process overhead, but it's not as bad as some places. Get interrupted quite a bit, sometimes difficult to be able to focus on things for long periods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Political and toxic--one of the worst places to work

    Pros

    Competitive Compensation
    Market leaders
    Interesting technology, growing market opportunity

    Cons

    Extremely political. Everyone is out for themselves
    Backstabbing--people are so paranoid about their own job they won't hesitate to sell you down the river
    Political--one person's perception can kill your career and it doesn't matter how hard you work or what you accomplish. It's all about how well you dress and suck up to senior leaders.
    Bureaucratic--nothing gets done quickly, people waste endless cycles doing and re-doing because
    management is indecisive and doesn't stick to a plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing course and reacting to everything EMC does. Stick with decisions and execute against a plan. Don't let closed minded middle managers demotivate and pigeonhole talented people. Show appreciation and respect for people's efforts and time.

    It wasn't until I left that I realized how dysfunctional the company was. Glad to be where I'm appreciated and recognized for my skills, talents and leadership.
