I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits, Hard working co-workers

Cons

Management is completely disconnected from any technical knowledge and do not listen to the engineering staff. They are far more interested in implementing the next feel good program and preaching how you need to be global. The ideals in Apex are completely contrary to the rest of the company. Everything from work schedules and payout of goals is disparate. The facility is a manufacturing plant and treats the employees extremely bad. You will always work year end holidays, as the only days that are given are Christmas and New Years Day. This includes weekends...you will be working them. There are no upward career opportunities. All jobs are essentially dead-end if you want to stay at the Apex location.

Advice to Management

Modernize the Apex management philosophies. The methods being used are outdated and the treatment of the employees is akin to a contract manufacturer

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

    Pros

    EMC provides an excellent benefit package at a reasonable cost. I work in a smaller field office and growth opportunities there are more limited than in the main offices. The have a good tuition reimbursement policy.

    Cons

    The customer facing positions in the field can involve irregular and long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Put a leash on the sales organization and make them more accountable for what is sold.
