    I have been working at Isilon, A Division of EMC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team, insanely great product, no rank-and-yank type tendencies.
    The market positioning with the new Dell acquisition makes this a force majeure in the storage field. The technologies leveraged by the platform are insanely fun to work on, and the teams that build out tools for devs and techs are amazing.

    Cons

    Standard big company problems. The word from on high is disseminated gradually, but fully, by mgmt. The spirit of competition, while never rancorous, is strong.

    Certain players don't respect business hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
