    I worked at EMC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good health benefits, Free coffee.The food sales doesn't want after a meeting they will let the customer service side have the crumbs.

    Cons

    Any customer service or pm positions that EMC can move to Draper Utah(contractors) or India they will. Not enough customer engineers to handle day to day service requests or IMAC activities. District service managers, CE'S are overwhelmed. If the customer is a level 4, EMC doesn't care about them. They are in the process now of laying off or early retire ASR's, FSS's CE's in order to hire younger people out of college(lower pay). Every action on the Customer service side is reactive / fire drill.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits (Cadillac healthcare, PTO, Life Insurance, childcare if you live close to HQ), middle management has been great (macro managers, hard workers, etc). Salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    The top brass make random decisions with no rhyme or reason. There are definite cliques and if your manager isn't in it, then your group gets short changed. Resources to support sales are practically non-existent. Many people only get promoted because they fit into the "old boys" club version of a sales guy: white good looking former jocks who kiss up to the right people and aren't very bright.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is if you have lost your drive to lead please just get out of the way and let someone else take the reins. Your misguided decisions are affecting everyone.
