    Pros

    Get some good training and spend time on making right contacts. EMC Brand helps to built your own career in corporate world. Exciting to know inside story of how branding and marketing works in technology world !!
    There are lot of EMC product out in market and you will always have work.

    Cons

    Promotions and salary hike are for chosen few . it is very closed licensed based products , so you are stick to it for rest of your career. Company put his profit first and foremost before employee. lots of management changes makes you wonder where you will be tomorrow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work on training and share profit with larger group of employee.

    I worked at EMC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I liked the remote worker flexibility and collaborative mentality. Lots of technical talent to bring to bear when solving issues. Opportunities to move to other areas within the business as well as partner businesses such as VMware

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be tough. Sales is a revolving door which makes other parts of the delivery and customer sat process a challenge.

    Current Employee - Advisory Systems Engineer in New York, NY (US)

    I have been working at EMC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    On the whole, a hard working group of pros who are intelligent and have a good understanding of the ecosystem - peers, competitors, partners, and adjacent businesses. The company is making the transition from a legacy storage business to a next-gen stack provider with Pivotal and VMware in the mix and is poised to be one of the few survivors of this epic transformation of the IT industry. Job mobility is reasonably good and career opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Laggards remain who only want to sell big boxes of disks, and many still don't understand the difference between infrastructure and what cloud really means. Fortunately, these are the minority and this group is shrinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing the federation story but bring the organizations much closer together.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Alot of technology, most of it industry leading. Good quarters can be lucrative. Plethora of training available.

    Cons

    Pressure. The sales quotas go up every quarter. High turnover of account teams leaves engineers constantly looking over their shoulder. Management is also very stressed and have tendency's to take it out on team members. No real office. Sit in different location each day due to flex office space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up. They are engineers, not soldiers or puppets.

    Pros

    Great technology, training and work from home

    Cons

    Lack of diversity, poor work life balance. Very difficult corporate culture, not a good place if you are female or a minority. There's a reason why this company is never on the 'Best Companies to Work for' list!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's no hope here. Any change would mean they would not have jobs.

    There is too much finger-pointing. Also, though the amount of work that there is to do can be daunting, some try to push off the workload too much to others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would behoove management to be more in-tune with what goes on in the field
