    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked at EMC for over eight years before we merged with Dell. I enjoyed the culture and liked working there.

    Cons

    Leading up to the Dell merger, it was all about the numbers. No one really cared about the customer in the end. They just wanted to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Push back to the executives when all they want to do is outsource. Just ask the customer what works best for them. Using overseas resources for Professional Services is not going to retain customers.

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many different opportunities available. I was with them through the glory years, the downturn, the turn around, and the fade and merger. Through it all, I really enjoyed my time there. I always felt that it had a good engineering/technology focus.

    Always had plenty of different types of technology to work on and training/certification was encouraged.

    Cons

    Suffered a bit from having too many products and the struggles of integrating products from acquired companies.

    As hardware has become more and more marginalized, they are trying hard to shift to more software and services. They have done a good job but it's a constant struggle to compete with all the small players that pop up and steal mindshare and market share.
