    I have been working at EMC full-time

    Pros

    good work life balance, great management in engineering organization, management seems fair and like they know what they are doing tactically. Management really support people growing - so trainings, even if you want to take next step they are verbally supportive. With Dell taking over and company going private the hopes are good. Cafeterias in company owned buildings provide awesome healthy food choices that feel very much sponsored by the company as a full healthy lunch will run you to the tune of $6.

    Cons

    the same management is very windy strategically - as reorgs are hitting EMC with Dell taking over that is probably not their fault.

    Company is full of old-timers that are comfortable in their seats - if one wants career advancement they need to jump around, especially so in a more static field organization, a bit better in corporate side. Also very hard for a remote employee to be promoted, but that comes with the benefit of working remotely.

    Advice to Management

    be less volatile with the external promises, and please don't screw up the integration with Dell and don't stomp all over people's benefits, that is one of the reasons so many people stick around.

    Access to great opportunities with top companies in every industry. You will also get to work with leading technology and great team members.

    Keep moving forward with the work/life balance initiatives and continue to make EMC a great place to work.
