    Pros

    EMC used to have great health insurance, stock options, and it was a great place to work. Since the recent acquisition plans the company has gone into a downward spiral.

    Cons

    Insurance is terrible, jobs are extremely stressful, also they expect you to work without taking a vacation. I haven't had a vacation in 6 years. They they sign non-competes with every company. So you will never find another job with other places.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a manager, they make managers have a full 40 hour job and manage teams of 30. Run away!

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Performance Driven culture, good pay, excellent incentives and a very strong training program for both new employees and managers

    Cons

    You cannot hide from poor results. This is an organization where everyone is good or even great. Mediocre performers tend to stand out very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the moxy of the sales force after the Dell merger. The number one reason why EMC has been so successful is the salesforce. Hardware is Hardware. Don't lose the edge of the salesforce.

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start your IT career. Great health benefits and matching 401K. Loved the GSAP program. Great place for short-term, but not for long-term. Learn as much as you can for a few years and then go to another company. In this industry, you get paid more by leaving a company and being hired with a new company.

    Cons

    It is difficult to have job growth at EMC especially when they outsource most positions. I was hired to be in professional services but I return from GSAP training, and it was a job that I did not apply for. Even if you offer yourself for more work, don't because you will not recognized, but if you do, senior management disapproves because you busted their OT budget. Lots of re-organizations here. If you are in customer service, be prepared to deal with micro-bean-counter senior management. Can't retain talented individuals. Low retention with senior level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to allowing your employees wanting to move out of customer service. Stop pigeon-holing your employees into specific products and allow them to broaden their horizons.
