    Cons

    Too much outsourcing of jobs. Management leaves you in the dark of going ons. Not easy to advance a career at EMC.

    I started working for EMC as a Technical Recruiter approximately three years ago and I absolutely love my job. EMC is such a great place to work as they are care a great deal about their employees and reward those who perform well. I commutte 2-3 hours per day and I do it because I love going to work every day and enjoy working with my team.

    Due to the nature of the industry EMC is a very fast paced company and sometimes can require working long hours.

    Do continue to keep all employees at all levels in the loop.
