    Pros

    Even though EMC's culture is work hard work harder, I felt that there was a pretty good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Non-existent communication from upper management as to what's going on. A lot of lay offs recently with the Dell Merger due to corporate restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees you lay off with respect. It's like once laid off, HR doesn't care whether or not you get paid accurately or if all the separation motions are going smoothly. Isn't that HR's job? I gave years to EMC, and I felt disrespected the way I was treated after being laid off. Was not a professional experience at all. For a company I loved, respected, and promoted all these years, the way I was let and go and the experience post lay off dealing with HR really left a bad taste in my mouth.

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

    Pros

    Pay is competitive. Plenty of revenue-generating work to stay busy with. Office culture is there for people who like that sort of thing. Training, training, training. No two days look the same and that means constant change. Most of the technology works well for the customer. Playing with the newest technology is exciting. The turnover rate is high for the commercial SE's, so that meant plenty of new accounts to be exposed to.

    Cons

    High deductible Insurance is expensive. Being acquired by Dell has already caused negative changes to the EMC culture. Many sales people are old-school and only know how to discuss storage tech refreshes, not willing to develop greenfield opportunities in Xaas, Cloud and Application Development areas. No solid career path for Systems Engineers, it is a dead end job with only title upgrades. Many managers only want "yes-men" not innovative thinkers. 401K is Fidelity based and not terribly robust for earning potential. Clear cultural division between the commercial SE team and the "8th floor" Enterprise SE team and that was disappointing. Whole company is incredibly clique-ish.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a career path for your Systems Engineers and support them for moving on and moving up. Train/Develop your SE Managers before throwing them into their new management role. Stop playing favorites and only focusing on developing your closest friends.
