Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Pay, benefits, flexible schedule, work from home, people (most, anyway)

Cons

Bureaucracy, politics, too many high-paid directors and VPs doing nothing of value, too many reorgs for the sake of reorgs, ultimately position offshored to China (an English technical writing job, no less!) with no warning or inkling.

Advice to Management

Know the value of your employees and choose quality work, accumulated knowledge, and breadth and depth of experience over mindless "cost savings."

    Big company - so lots of red tape. It takes a long time for processes to complete

    Need more women in top executive team. Women recruits notice this when looking at EMC as a place to work.
