Pros

Great Products and a fabulous growth. Former CEO had an incredible vision for the company and was so humble. I dont know yet about the new CEO

Cons

Completely disorganized company with very little process in place and a pace that can be very challenging. Since 2013, no PTO anymore...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop managing the company as if it was a start-up

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    *good virtualization software for the datacenter.
    *good customer base.
    *first to market w/cloud infrastructure soltions.

    Cons

    *new CFO made big moves along with new CEO resulting in major stock crash!
    *some say it allows EMC to pick up more shares, they are wasting their money as Microsoft is giving HyperV away for FREE!!!
    *EMC is commodotitizng storage which means customers only need half of their VMware licenses.
    *sersiously, you laid off around 10% of your workforce and Cisco, Juniper, and other tech heavy weights picked most of them up already ...nice way to recruit for the competitor!
