    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn, improve ones technical expertise. But could do a better job providing current resources to their technical sales teams to have hands on experience with the newer version of their hardware. Hard to go to customers and help them with the latest equipment when you only have old equipment in the labs.

    Cons

    Expect you to work yourself ragged, every quarter is "the most important quarter of your career", just burn through people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop all the "fluff" about how good things are at EMC, and take a reality check. You can't keep pushing people to the point of exhaustion, and not reward them.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work, lots of training, ability to move into different areas and locations. Been here 20 years have seen it go from amazing to barely passable.

    Cons

    Was incredible experience in earlier years, true innovation and driven by engineers. Not the case any longer. Focused on mgmt by reports and not interested in feedback from field. Original talent long gone or forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Stop continual focus shifts, stop trying to buy innovation, pay attention to field engineers who work with customers daily. Don't manage by report dashboards.

    Alot of products, most are #1 in the industry. Sales can be very beneficial.

    Pros

    Flexible, mature work environment with great benefits. The people there are smart and knowledgeable of their products.

    Cons

    Not a very innovative place outside of the core products and services they sell. It's not that there aren't good ideas, they just take a long time to come to light.

    Advice to Management

    More integration between groups and departments might help improve the overall sales and delivery side of the business. It's a wonderful place to work, just a bit slow at times.

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits. Access to latest in IT. Great co-workers and bosses. Excellent severance system (pay continuation) provides financial security.

    Cons

    Quarterly reports that took so much time to write but were barely looked at by management. If you're assigned full-time to a client you don't truly feel part of EMC, as you're quite disconnected. Too many bosses and re-orgs (back a few years ago).

    Advice to Management

    You're doing well. At the customer engagement level, more team leaders to encourage and assist the staff performing the work. And when the client ended my engagement, you were there to help me move on. Not many companies do that and it was incredibly appreciated.
