    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great, hard working people who know their stuff and have been in the industry for the long haul. Pretty flexible

    Cons

    Same as all other large public companies, lots of employees, lots of levels of mgmt and lots and lots of meetings and conference calls

    Advice to Management

    I honestly don't have any real advise to Mgmt., it's a big company employs need to just go with the flow of mgmt team.

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

    Pros

    Amazing experience as an intern; great mentors, from the account managers, to the architects, to pretty much every individual in the office. Very welcoming and make the interns feel like they are apart of the office

    Cons

    Really can't think of any, everyone really treated me like family there. Not sure how the merger with Dell will change this internship because my internship was while it was occurring. I really hope not much though because the experience I gained through this internship was invaluable

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for EMC for 15 years until the Dell merger. EMC was a great company but then became a ton pf politics and job uncertainty.

    Cons

    The dell merger lead to good people either being fired or just leaving.. To this day I am hearing from my friends that the heads are still rolling. I was laid off my last position as a Solutions Architect and asked to interview for another position in presales which I though and was told I nailed even through the hour mock presentation. 2 weeks went by an was told i didn't get it because i didnt have presales experience.. WELL DUHHHH I was asked to interview knowing that I didn't have presales experience an was told i did a amazing job. None the less found out a family member of the hiring manager with zero experience got the job which infuriated me.. Its a blessing that I didn't get the job because now I have a civil service position with a pension so take that EMC Dell whatever you're head chopping name is lol..

    Advice to Management

    Actually advice to current employees and potential employees... DONT WORK HERE IF YOU LIKE JOB SECURITY!!!

    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.
