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

Pros

Still a growing company so there is opportunity for those who want to find it. Good leadership with clear vision have carved out a unique identity in the industry. Financial strength creates possibilities for the future. Stable succession plan in place.

Cons

Culture has evolved since the days of Dick Egan and some of the executives are more self-serving than in the past, plus there are a lot more of them. Decision-making is slower and communication between manager and IC levels is poor in some areas of the company. Everyone's My Cousin still applies.

Advice to Management

Hold executive relatives and referrals accountable for performance or manage them out like any other employee. For those reading this, it's a nit in an otherwise quality company but it is an opportunity for improvement. Improve communication from middle management to IC level.

    I have been working at EMC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - competitive pay
    - laid-back people
    - good corporate culture

    Cons

    - Interns are usually moved around among different groups (dev, qa etc.) Not very good career outlook if assigned to a QA team.

    I have been working at EMC as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Internships are paid, and oftern get extended.

    Cons

    75% conversion rate, but I have had little success. EMC is slow at hiring for full time roles. Will bring in recent graduates as interns.
