256 EMC Corp. Company Reviews and Ratings

4.6Posted 4 months ago in Santa Clara, CA
"I cannot say enough positive things about EMC's corporate culture and its treatment of employees. The org chart is very flat -- as a junior manager, I was 5 links below the CEO. Managers give solid, effective feedback and *real* performance evaluations, so you should always know where you stand. In most groups, innovation and new ideas are welcomed -- if you can put together a solid plan and show the numbers."

"The company treated their employees better before a reorganization a few years ago. Training has become non-existent. EMC has decided it is cheaper to hire new employees overseas and get rid of the current employees than it is to move the current employees into new positions. As EMC changes the languages and operating systems they use, EMC degrades the working conditions until people start leaving. Those that don't leave are laid off."

"Too many reorgs and not a clear vision. If not in the corporate good old boy club, it can be challenging."

"I worked for RSA as a contractor supporting a major bank. The products are great and the customer was enjoyable to work with. I was training to take over the prof services role so that the current person could move on to another role. I was there about 7 month and was just starting to get comfortable with the technology and was fully supporting the customer but instead of getting hired they moved someone from another group into the role and ended my contract. I feel it wasn't the best move on behalf of the customer as this person had to start over learning this product and the customer was introduced with another prof services person and wasn't very happy with starting over with another person taking over their account. I also didn't understand a decision like that which was to save money, but at what expense?"

"A manager at EMC succeeds by making his manager happy creating yes men down the line. This causes a disconnect between management and the engineers who actually do the work and it shows in the final product."

"I worked as part of the CTO Office for several years and had a chance to work at the cutting edge of several fields. It is an influential company and there is tremendous opportunity to make an impact in the world. It is not just a storage company anymore. Its acquisition of VMWare has put it squarely in the middle of the virtualization revolution and thus the cloud revolution."

"I worked for EMC for nearly 7 years. It is a good company with a great continuously improving product line. I was able to work from home until they removed the position from my location. The worst part of working for EMC is the management turnaround does not allow for visions to be realized."

"EMC has been an extremely nice company to work for, however over the years it has been consistent at its level of underpaying for its staff. EMC'ers will habitually leave the company in order to advance as EMC has a habit of short-changing advancement opportunities."
