    Pros

    Work life balance, great benefits , competitive salary. Some of the great people to work with. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    There is a lot of changes in the organization due to constant change. The change comes from experimentation than the experience. I wish the changes were from experience...

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

    Pros

    Great products and partner network, Marketing organisation best in class with loads of great talent

    Cons

    siloed organisation means that it is hard to get things done, so many systems that don't tie together that you spend a lot of times chasing your tail to get things done

    Advice to Management

    Simply and focus break down the silos got back to a BU model for marketing rather than shared services which never worked

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

    Pros

    Being able to work from home. Working overtime can be beneficial at times. At the end of quarters, you'll get half days for the most part. Ice cream time is always a plus...idk.

    Cons

    Okay, where do I start. The politics are so bad there. Managers will fire you just by not liking you. Supervisors would walk away while you're talking to them, how disrespectful is that. Other coworkers want to look good so they will try to make it seem like you don't know anything at all so they could look good for the supervisors/managers. You'll work there for years and no raise. People talk crap about each other all the time. They think they know everything and won't help you but turn around and have someone else do their work for them. This has to be the worst work experience I've ever had. It is unhealthy to work under those conditions, leaving work fearing if you're on the brink of getting fired because the supervisors could seem like they are on their periods on day, this includes the male supervisors, then happy the other. Don't try to make friends, just work and try to transfer if you're in the Franklin location. Beware if you end up working there. EMC in a whole, because the politics are ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your coworkers and stop being so disrespectful to the employees that are helping you get jobs done. You seem like you love toying with employees emotions and families and that's not fine. Stop giving nonsense trainings that the employees will never use. Give raises and not wait 10 years to get one raise. Stop making this an unhealthy work environment. When employees need help with something, don't think they don't know anything at all, they just need some calcifications.

    No career advancement opportunity for management track. Lots of politics at senior management level. It's not about who does a good job. But then that is the same in all big companies.
