    I worked at EMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at EMC in IT prior to the Dell aqcuisition. I don't know what Dell EMC is like. There was plenty of opportunity to pursue interesting things.

    Cons

    Not really a con but I didn't match the culture well. And when that is the case, things rarely go well. It was a big place with big place annoyances.

    Advice to Management

    Think of other people first. That's really more like advice to any human being... but I always got the impression they were mostly focused on looking after themselves.

    I worked at EMC (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    EMC Corp is a great company to work for. Very few larger companies allow a developer/analyst to where many hats. Benefits are excellent, Managers provide the tools needed to do proof of concept and advance. EMC Corp is very team oriented/driven. The people you work with are all in and wonderful to work with. Now IT is a Software As A Service (SaaS) and it works great...

    Cons

    Restructures and HR seem to be detached from the business imitate/long term needs.

    Advice to Management

    The statement in the cons selection pretty much sums this up.
