No opinion of CEO

Pros

They employ some smart and talented engineering people. The benefits for employees are actually quite good and leave employees with many options.

Cons

A 'fire/aim'ready' culture that takes its direction from sales. The 'low badge numbers' have a way of killing anything new or innovative because it threatens them. Human resources leadership are mostly worthless and back management not employees.

Advice to Management

Stop acquiring companies and then telling those new employees how to do what they were already doing because you are insecure and lack confidence because EMC is the only place you've ever worked. Stop giving yourselves tons of stock and stock options because it's not working - the stock has gone no higher than the 20's for over 7 years.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Tech Pubs team was awesome and managers were supportive. Development, QA, Support, were all great to work with too.

    Cons

    No clear direction for IIG. No support from corporate. Employees not valued. Too much off-shoring. Losing too many good people.

    Advice to Management

    Every year employees provide feedback to EMC, but EMC fails to address the concerns of the employees.
