    I have been working at EMC full-time

    Pros

    Great work culture - amazing, after time spent at both IBM and Oracle. Friendly, courteous co-workers, all with great attitude.

    Cons

    A big company that still operated like a small company..not really prepared to operate as a Software Company. Maybe the merge with Dell will change that.

    I worked at EMC full-time

    Pros

    Good pro education and nice salary for new freshman at undergraduate level

    Cons

    too free and didn't have too much work to do. Kinda of relaxation.

    I have been working at EMC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a very much people company, but now a days with all those layoffs, can't say this anymore. Perks are good.

    Cons

    Layoffs, budget cuts, lack of innovative approach. Salary could be better but anyway until recent turn of events didn't complain much.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just outsource to India or China. Recognize people's potential and loyalty for the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, can have a good team environment (heavily influenced by manager and location). Long standing company that isn't going anywhere (even with acquisition by Dell)

    Cons

    Growth is determined by immediate manager, you really are just a number, can only influence in immediate surrounding, everything is decided by PMs, due to size decisions are made with very little input from remote offices

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

    Pros

    An opportunity to grow and thrive as it is possible depending on the location you are based - to transfer to other product lines be they hardware or software based resulting in an expanded skill set.

    Cons

    A great deal of uncertainty as EMC is digested by Dell - what products will remain. How will Dell handle the increased debt load. EMC is shedding staff and looking at lowering costs by hiring in their "centres of excellence"

    Advice to Management

    Take a break from primarily hiring GSAP's as their lack of technical skill IS impacting CSAT and TTR. you are being penny wise but pound foolish
