    I have been working at EMC full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Lot of focus on employee development and up skilling. Awesome infrastructure and you get to work on one of the world's leading products and technologies.

    Cons

    Can't carry forward more than 5 leaves per year. Internal job application process is based on ratings. A personal is SM and satisfactory meets all the requirements still can't apply for a level up roles and has to struggle with lateral movements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the clause of SM raters not eligible to apply for one up roles as 65% of your workforce is rated SM and you are neglecting their career growth and advancement.

    Pros

    Lot of emphasis on people

    Cons

    The emphasis starts only during the survey for GPTW

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the cost cutting, and groom the Team Leaders before they get into the role to make them understand how to speak to team members in team meetings. Taunting them in front of the whole team is not an ideal behaviour from a TEAM LEADER

    Good work culture, Amazing training opportunities, flexible work timings (Depends on your project)

    Cons

    Not up to the Product based company standards
    No transparency in promotions and hikes (which is common on most companies)
    Indian management narrow mindedness

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop global mindset equalant to western countries as the business flow from there. Should treat and provide facilities as being provided to employees in US. Don't take this place as a cost cutting center.
