Current Employee - Principal Engineer in Hopkinton, MA (US)

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

Pros

Lot of opportunities for career growth within different divisions. Diverse portfolio of products through acquistions. Market leader. Strong at execution and powerful sales force. If you want a career in sales this is the place to be.

Cons

Large company. Slow to innovate. Old school hierarchical structure not as appealing to younger work force. Places too much emphasis on experience rather than potential and capabilties. Makes it difficult for young, bright and talented people to grow fast.

    I worked at EMC as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - They pay you well even as an intern.
    - It has a great reputation among companies. A lot of companies were willing to interivew me just a month after I started my summer internship.
    - My team treated me with respect despite I made a lot of silly mistakes.

    Cons

    Not many college graduate opportunities. You need to have prior working experience to be even considered for an interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give opportunities for college graduates.

    Pros

    If you work at EMC you will be surrounded by intelligent people.
    Company tries to get in time with new technologies. You never feel like you work with old stuff or re-inventing a bicycle.

    Cons

    You bonuses are never greater than it is written in contract (but could be less).
    No budget for business trips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity is not always a good strategy for business. Especially if you don't have money for business trips.
