    I worked at EMC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible people. I'd describe EMC as a company made up of Oracle and Cisco people in terms of aggressive talented sales people with the likability of Cisco employees. Very independent environment and accountable. Great reporting, not overly managed like the companies of today. Management is exceptional. Strong leadership.

    Cons

    Would be nice if there were people at the office. Work remotely or the client site. For sales people it is sometimes nice to collaborate. Although there are weekly forecast meetings in person which is nice seeing your peers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job.
