I worked at EMC full-time (More than a year)

Pros

EMC is a good place to work. They have great products, a dynamic environment, it is fast paced, and people are genuinely energized by the company's success

Cons

The place can be very competitive internally, departments that need to work together do not necessarily have shared goals and this can make an individual's job difficult. People want to be helpful but if you are not being measured against the same goal, it is nearly impossible to get cooperation

    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Great training opportunities.
    2. Bonuses paid out quarterly.
    3. Bonus objectives tied to management bonuses
    4. Work from home program

    Cons

    - Management plays favorites. Reactions are usually emotional. (I've witnessed numerous employees inform their management they want to look for new internal employment opportunities and then be told they have X amount of weeks to find a job or they will be laid-off)
     - Employee lay-offs are personal and not based on performance. If your manager likes you, you're safe. Many managers give satisfactory reviews but secretly build cases of negative performance that they can pull out years later to use during a layoff.
    - People are hired for certain abilities/knowledge but received no training on how to do their particular job.

    Advice to Management

    Speak with a sample of employees directly to root out bad Directors/Managers to head off morale issues
