Former Employee - Project Manager in Research Triangle Park, NC
Former Employee - Project Manager in Research Triangle Park, NC
Approves of CEO

Pros

- For the most part the people are good to work with and to know (both in/out of the office). With a few exceptions of course
- Work is long and requires some overtime and weekend efforts - but most of the time you are rewarded for these.
- The RTP site is relaxed both in attire and in report structure

Cons

- There are some really good groups at EMC - RTP. For example, the RSA team, Solutions, Tech Pubs, DVT, and CS. But there are some groups that really need help like the Celerra group. They remain stuck in the past with old values and old views. They lack structure, firm guidance, and adequate exposure to the "outside" world. As EMC moves more towards convergence with their new storage lines, I expect this group to disappear (if it hasn't already).

Advice to those interviewing - pay close attention to advances, achievements, and future plans of the the specif group you are considering. If they don't have a 5 year plan - which Celerra does not, then they are probably the wrong group to settle into.

Advice to Management

- Spend more time increasing your knowledge regarding the business-side of EMC. Learn about other roles within EMC to gain additional perspectives.
- Increase your employee management skills. For example, if you've been a manager at EMC for 10 years and you have only taken 5 employee management courses then you are not doing a good job. Before you can motivate your direct reports you have to first understand how to effectively manage employees.
