Pros

Name recognition of employer and products, time off is somewhat easy to schedule. The network of people is fantastic as their is good espirit de corp and some really sharp minds here.

Cons

No advancement of career or any recognition if you are not at their offices in Boston or San Jose, CA. Enjoy the salary/comp you get when you join as it won't change unless you get promoted. You don't get promoted unless you work in boston or san jose or get a good, influential contact that does. Once EMC has you onboard, they just expect you to shut up and produce ("complainers" are laid off).

Advice to Management

OFFER CAREER DEVELOPMENT! PROMOTE AND RECOGNIZE STARS THAT ARE "IN THE FIELD" AND NOT AT CORPORATE OFFICES. This means actually doing it, not giving lip service to this in Cabo or in emails.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very fast paced work environment making the ability to think on your feet and act on the fly a must. Because of that environment, co-workers are quite competent and dependable.

    Cons

    Because of the fast-paced and intense sales-driven culture it is truly a sink or swim environment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the field.

    Current Employee - Project Manager
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Education benefits, good company name on your resume for future growth. Nice people, big global company which is still expanding. Nice salary for a fresh graduates. We are allow to work from home.

    Cons

    Bad management. It gets boring pretty soon since their products are so limited to the enterprise company but not to the personal users. Sales team sold products to the customers without really confirming if it is going to work, which ends up having a bad implementation later on. One cannot stay with EMC for too long because too much stress compare to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Not helpful at all.
