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

    Pros

    -Great place to get a brand name on your resume, especially if you are in 20s
    -Lots of training, learning opportunities with great benefits

    Cons

    -Bureaucracy; wasted protocols and processes
    -Incessant reorgs - management doesn't stick to one org strategy for more than 6 months and every new org lead tries to do things his way shuffling things around impacting employees, morale and overall company strategy
    -

    Advice to Management

    -The ship is sinking no matter what bs you do. You are playing catch-up, suck it up. Dell will sink with it with a $45B debt continuously focused on cutting costs for years to come in turn (1) losing great employees to competitors 40 miles away in Cambridge and (2) taking away focus on customers and R&D investments.
