I worked at EMC full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

1) Work life balance.
2) Amazing company for women.( endless work from home option )
3) facilities( pick up / drop off ,Cab service, canteen)
4) company is well positioned and well focused
5) every one gets good ratings, no lay offs, job is secure and steady.
6) Good place to retire with out much hassle.

Cons

1) work is mostly maintenence type, no R&D , no new product build up.
2) Managers are non-engineers, pure people managers,no engineering mindset and focus.
3) delivery focused, no dedicated labs for teams( this results in less real time testing and more bugs when shipped )
4) Awards are automatically given to all ( there is pressure among managers and teams to nominate and give awards )
5) Not much growth in the technical ladder. ( insufficient technical expertise among managers to judge technical quality among engineers ).
6) No prototypes built and experimented.
7) Most meetings are like a ritual

Advice to Management

Management does not always mean working with excel / power point...more engineering focus required. 80% technical , 20% management upto Sr.Management level will help the company grow.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Opportunity to work with some great people and cutting edge technology.
    - Home-office is possible (but not universal).
    - Great place to start a career!

    Cons

    - Too big.
    - Horrible administrative systems.
    - Salary eventually declines in line with inflation.
    - Share price and quarter end numbers determine everything.

    Advice to Management

    Some ships are too big to turn around, but it might be an idea to try and split things up a bit and recreate the dynamic feel that used to be in present in all areas of the company.
