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

    Pros

    Absolutely fantastic colleagues, flexible work schedule in office, client site and home. Manager was out of this world, ex IBM executive of 18 years and Yale Graduate, so this was really the most anyone could ask for from a manager who has become my friend now that i am with IBM. The virtualization team blew out our number which disbanded our group due to EMC making Virtualization a top company focus for 2013.

    Cons

    No one is in the office. Ghost town. Would be nice to have more collaborative sessions. Also, there are areas of the company blocked off and locked off where you lock yourself out of the office and cannot get to your phone which you may have left at your desk. No buzzer, no front desk person, so security person who can let you in. I always found this to be so unbelievably disorganized and frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a badge or have someone who can be reached 24-7 on an intercom system to unlock the doors.

    Pros

    The culture was overall very positive and they provided good benefits. Also, management was willing to listen to employees and enact change when needed

    Cons

    The flattened management structure made ability for promotions rather difficult. Total compensation is below market rate for tech companies (at least in Seattle).
