    Pros

    Solid and stable leader in the enterprise content management industry with full financial backing yet entrepreneurial in spirit.

    Cons

    Market share stagnant and key market players and investors were pushing to spin off divisions to increase company and market share value. This caused much upheaval and lack of confidence and comfort for most employees.

    Advice to Management

    Software division of company has now been spun out to a key competitor located in Canada.

    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.

    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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest and most motivated people I have ever worked around. Most type A personalities, earning potential was strong

    Cons

    Can be tough to have a healthy work life balance if you are not careful, just depends on the role you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the Dell integration very carefully, The EMC culture was something very special that made for pride in how we approached the market. If that is lost, could be a huge impact.
