Pros

The storage, virtualization, and cloud businesses are growing significantly, and these core areas are perceived of as leaders in the industry. This makes the core business area at EMC an attractive place to establish a career.

Cons

The Documentum division feels like it is in a death spiral and I would avoid working for this division.

Advice to Management

Spin off Documentum, if it's not too late, and find some committed and sensible managers to re-establish its lost ground in content management.

    Large Company, Management Structure is ancient.

    Advice to Management

    Think agility, think start-up. The only thing cool at EMC for the past few years has been its checkbook and VMware

    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.
