    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Well known for its excellent storage products. It owns VMware and RSA Security and both companies offer great products.

    Cons

    EMC regularly does layoffs to stay profitable. Reorganizations are routine and if you are new, you will probably lose your job. Pay is lower than their competitors and culture is tough - not people oriented. EMC and CA have similar cultures....

    Management only care about themselves not their employees professional growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need major shakeup here. Get rid of some of the older managers and bring in some new blood to change the culture.
