Current Employee - Principal Product Manager in Pleasanton, CA
Current Employee - Principal Product Manager in Pleasanton, CA
Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

Pros

1) Mngt actually takes care of you; Salary was recently cut by 5%, but they compensated with other things, like 5 extra paid days of vacation
2) Ownership: Like most places, it's political, but once ownership is established, everyone gets in line to support product delivery
3) Open to new ideas: no idea is taken off the table until it's fully vetted

Cons

1) Company is not a "fast mover"; does not identify new trends quickly
2) business model is in transition; competition has narrowed the gap, open source has taken away the lower tier of the market and classic disrupters are coming from Google and Adobe

Advice to Management

Break the product organization down to smaller, more tactial teams to quickly deliver product
Create "silos of expertise" to sell to customers

    Pros

    EMC is a big company so you can advance yourself within the company and move around to new fields of interest if you desire. If you are at the right place and want to try new things, you might get the resources and time to do so.

    Cons

    As any big organization, bureaucracy can hinder attempts for change.
    Salary cuts were across the board and not based on performance.

    Advice to Management

    When you cut salaries, don't cut across the board. Give managers the right to choose who should have only 1% off their salary, who 5% and who should go home.
