Working at EMC is a positive experience where teamwork and diligence will go a long way

Associate Customer Service Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at EMC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWilling and able team member are always there to help out. There are always new products to learn about so it keeps your mind fresh for your career

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementIt would behoove management to be more in-tune with what goes on in the field

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Place - fun - fast moving - never bored

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at EMC full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork / Life balance. Planned own schedule and work meetings. Great tech company. Plenty of opportunities to move into different positions.

ConsEnd of Quarter Stress. Too much pressure to close the quarter. Driven quarter to quarter. Super high focus on sales. Even for post sales positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

Always changing landscape of opportunities

Senior Manager Consulting (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsWas very entrepreneurial and some areas are still. Plenty of different discipline areas to explore and develop in. Customer satisfaction driven organization.

ConsBecoming very bureaucratic in it's operations. Less cross role flexibility, meaning your role is all you're to be working on. Lost the basis of a good consulting organization. People are turning their brains off to work within the constraints of the machine that is being built. Doesn't seem to be improving consulting revenue.

Advice to Senior Managementif you want to stay effective and relevant, as a consulting services provider, you need to benchmark better against highly successful consulting organizations, especially for consultant retention and development. If you just want to be a body shop, then continue your path of rate erosion and lack of entrepreneurial outlets.

Liked the company, but Client Services group was non-existent

Senior Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I worked at EMC full-time for more than 8 years

ProsDecent benefits, PTO, etc. I was able to work at the client site for many years.

ConsKept stressing the importance of career growth, but their efforts to help were half-hearted. My management rarely showed its face to my client, and behaved as if they were entitled to have me work there. Also, there was too much focus on useless certifications with no advancement even if you did get them.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember your strength is your consultants.

Prosgreat environment to work. Majority of the management folks are very good to work with.

ConsCompensation review is not fair. You work day and night and you get nothing and lazy ones who really knows how to talk they would get more compensation and promotions. Your brain gets you nowhere rather your mouth gets you promotions!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes and know people's skill.
