    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, a lot of very smart people at the individual contributor level. Very flexible on hours, working from home, etc.

    Cons

    Executives over-promise on products resulting in terrible quality upon initial release. As a result there is tons of churn as products go from hot topics to buggy problems to closed down which leads to layoffs even of new hires. Extremely vertical organization results in lots of maneuvering by management and a lot of dishonesty.

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

    Pros

    Depending on the team, you may get to work with good people. Benefits are just okay, nothing much to talk about. Seldom get work emails/calls after 6 pm.

    Cons

    Poor management. No transparency. Very arbitrary decisions percolated down to development teams without explanation. Lot of duplicate efforts, with every team fighting to get a piece of the pie. Too much inter-team politics. Management does not promote or encourage good performers. HR is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of old-time all-powerful ever-in-charge "consultant engineers". Almost seems like they've unionized the place, and no one can question them or their design/ideas, let alone work with them during the design phase. Encourage newer developers and designers to participate in design, esp those that have demonstrated potential. Educate middle-level management on management skills - this is a much-lacking skill here.
