    The benefits here are good. The company is on top and still on the rise. The management knows what they are doing and where they are going.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than average despite the good benefits. The future career plans of the individual is not particularly cared for.

    Pros

    Great focus on customers and on people. They look after high performers.

    Cons

    Senior management outside local countries make distant decisions about employees. Offices are dull and need to get a more modern look.

    Advice to Management

    The company culture needs to move forward. It's a nice culture, but will it attract the future talent EMC needs?

    Pros

    There are some great people. Most departments have a good working environment. Can't really think of much more I'm afraid.

    Cons

    Management is inexperienced. Talking to some of them is like listening to a recital of the latest Harvard Business Review. Tenure is more important than experience. Promotions are given to the in-crowd and those unlikey to rock the boat.

    Products are falling behind the market - there are only so many start-ups you can acquire while claiming to have a coherent strategy and keeping the key people seems to be an issue. Regular spin-offs like VMWare and Pivotal deprive mainstream employees of career opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending. Many of you lack the required experience to lead the business to success in a world that is very different to how it was when you joined 12-14 years ago. You've been navigating EMC while the market moved on.

    Be suspicious of those who always agree with you. Be even more suspicious of those who can clearly identify what the problems are in their area but fail to share how they plan to fix them.

    Embrace your channel - don't bully or threaten them - it's a free world and you need to earn their business. Their customers aren't impressed when they find out that the only reason a solution has been proposed was to keep you happy.
