    Pros

    Culture and extremely smart consultants. Many of the sales guys understand storage quite well. Co-workers are quite nice and fun to be around. Culture and extremely smart consultants. Many of the sales guys understand storage quite well. Co-workers are quite nice and fun to be around.

    Cons

    Management can be slow to make decisions. Lack of promoting consultants to higher positions such as senior consultant. Some are arrogant and seem to really push customers towards storage products they don't want or need.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more consultants from within, and listen more to customers.

    Pros

    The staff you work with is by far some of the most talented and driven people I have ever met. Every new role I have moved into has had new challenges and opportunities. This is not a company where you will find yourself bored or without enough real work to keep you motivated.

    Cons

    Within any competitive environment where everyone wants to be the best it is very easy to find yourself working longer hours than you initially signed up for. Maintaining that work life balance is something every employee needs to manage for themselves.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Growing company. Strong market presence. Can be a rough place to work, but it you're tough and want to make money, this is a good place to be.

    Cons

    Weak middle management. Slow to integrate acquisitions. Needs to be bigger to take advantage of all the market opportunities. History of hard nosed selling still doesn't sit well with all customers.

    Advice to Management

    Grow, topgrade, integrate. Now is the time to accelerate market share growth. Use those dollars to strength the sales force and channels. Size up some acquisition candidate to capture on the market upswing. We need more to sell. Sell more of VMWare. Just need a controlling interest. Take the extra dollars out for more acquisitions.

    Pros

    EMC is a good place to work. I have flexible work hours and work hard based on what is required of me. I have been here a long time so my rapport with my peers is good. EMC offers excellent benefits like good salary, good health benefits, dental benefits, plus they offer a discount on multiple partner products like Dell and automotive discounts. EMC also provides money if you want to complete further education. I have been able to work on my own hours, have excellent vacation and able to take them anytime. I am also able to get some promotion in my ranks within EMC.

    Cons

    I have been able to get new positions with EMC. They give too much preferences to core Hardware team.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to Employees instead of listening to just the Core Hardware Team.

    Pros

    If you are newbee to the Storage Industry this is a good place to get and gain work useful skillsets . Once you gain experience leave and make real money elsewhere. Great in-house training they believe in constant ongoing training.
    Best training plan in the Storage Industry today.

    Cons

    Treated as a number not a human being. Little or no recognition when you do a good job. Poor balance between quality of life and family life. EMC does not care about your family or quality of life. They will throw you to the wolves and those who survive it get to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Non responsive , Non Proactive. only reactive in crisis type situations. They lack constant feedback on constant (quarterly) employee work appraisal and performance reviews. Either your in the bubble or outside of the bubble . Favoritisim runs rampid "Good Old Boys Network". 4 Managers for every employee. Process overdriven versus getting product to market where it really counts. To many chiefs and not enough indians

    Pros

    Stable large company that will be there even when time gets tough. Competitive starting pay. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Uncompetitive pay especially if you stay for more than 5 years. You may have a better chance to negotiate salary/benefit from outside in. So get some experience from a smaller vendor with a bigger title then come back to EMC will give you a better chance career wise.

    Advice to Management

    Develop within instead of buy. Cut the mid management. There are just too many Directors, VPs than people doing the actual work.

    Pros

    In EMC one can get a tremendous number of opportunities from web development to a very low level systems engineer. Also a good combination of work and personal life balance.

    Cons

    The downside of working at EMC is the common downside of working at any huge corporations - it's very easy to get lost inside and become just one regular employee (clerk) with no opportunities for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the greatest asset of this company and Senior Management has to value that.
