    I worked at EMC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, cool technologies. Ping Ping tables in the lunch rooms, subsidized meals. Very autonomous workflow even for interns. They aren't going to babysit you.

    Cons

    This is a very large company with a medium to high level of bureaucracy. It takes a lot of time for changes to happen

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time informing interns on what you are looking for in full time employees. Try to make younger employees feel welcomed in to the older environment

    Pros

    - smart, intelligent and dedicated colleagues
    - lot of events, parties, outings, pot lunch through both university relations and internal team etc.
    - My manager was very nice. Unlike some managers who just want to get the work done, she invested time and resources for me to learn things.

    Cons

    Due to the merger, there are a lot of cost cuttings and I saw a lot of people being fired or leaving in a very short time.My own team was almost half when I left.

    Advice to Management

    Try retaining good employees.

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with management on processes in place.
    Business Unit is a great staff to be apart of.
    Great communication between the staff.

    Cons

    Management is willing to listen, but is slow to react if something is not in place correctly.
    Your skills may be over looked by management, when you could be more effective in another roll.
    It is hard to move ahead even if you educate yourself to move up in the company.
    More benefits for CSTs, because the bare minimum is given to some really hard working people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, and have a more reactive role, when they bring something to your attention. Also give more opportunities to those who educate themselves and show skills that could be used in a better way to help the organization.
