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

Pros

There are opportunities to move within the company, though they can be hard to identify.
EMC has some excellent training courses. Unlike other places I've worked, I was allowed to attend these. My favorite was on Politics and Power.

Cons

You're kept very busy. In my case, the manager and team that I had were good at taking suggestions and offering advices. But it was a really small team and didn't give me a chance to network with others in the company.

Advice to Management

I was laid off because EMC wanted to focus on mobile and the cloud. Ironically I worked in a team developing a mobile application. I don't believe EMC has a firm strategy for using mobile as part of enabling their IT users.
