    Pros

    Good work/family balance. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Documentum has been on a death spiral for many years. Despite numerous attempts by different management teams over the past 5 years to transform the business, Documentum has lots its mojo. Each year a different management team seems to take over the product and try to rearrange the deck chairs on this sinking ship.

    With EMC's resources, they should split this group up into smaller teams and try to truly create new, smaller businesses rather than trying to hit a grandslam with this huge team, based on old code.

    Advice to Management

    Give up on the old Documentum business, mvoe on.

    Pros

    Working for a storage vendor that invests heavily in R&D and is constantly improving it's product lines is rewarding. This is not just a vendor that is pushing kit only to make money but is passionate about their products. Internally there is a great amount of collaboration and knowledge sharing. Once you are in the door there are many opportunities for advancement and growth if you have the will to reach for it.

    Cons

    The workload can be intense and creating a work/life balance is very challanging. This is the most stressful and rewarding job I have ever held.

    Advice to Management

    The lack of work/lilfe balance is the primary reason that I see good talent leave EMC. That needs to be addressed.
