    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..

    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.

    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!
