    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior management generally seems to care about employees. Great benefits and good pay. Raises are a concern, but that may feed back to the comment about line managers being very clichee and "picking favorites" above talent.

    Cons

    The initial lead up to the Dell merger was easy and seemed to lack direction. Layoffs caused a huge talent drain that has yet to be corrected

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to ensure that the cliches that the line managers develop don't occur. Being talented and good at what you do should be the gauge of your worth, not who's favorite.
