    I worked at EMC

    Pros

    - Corporate benefits. Probably the best benefit package among its peers.
    - Excellent if you do not have any high ambitions in career.
    - Lot of trainings, only if your manager allows you to attend
    - If you are a manager with no technical background or has service industry background, this is the place you should work.
    - Services company work style with product company salaries.
    - If you are a person from service background with no on-site opportunities(Reading low savings) then this is the place
    - If you are a person who have made money abroad and wanted to come to india to live peaceful and retired life, this is the company.

    Cons

    - No respect for engineers.
    - High value for managers.
    - Engineers are the ones who are expected to do all the work.
    - Mostly maintenance or mature product lines or solution development using EMC technology stack.
    - No real product development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need. Management knows what they are doing.
    Advice to engineers, if you are serious about your career, don't go near!.

    PS: One may ask why did I work for so long when the situation is bad. Well, that's EMC for you. You are paid too much for doing low quality work which is a lethal combination.

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

    Pros

    1. Great place to work with amazing work-life balance
    2.The work culture is very apolitical and therefore it is conducive for growth
    3. Very focused on new emerging technologies and you get to work on cutting edge technology
    4. Health benefits and employee benefits are one of the best

    Cons

    1. Management is not so creative
    2. Salary is not comparable to some of the best in the industry and that is where EMC lags behind

    Pros

    Work from home. benefits and learning opportunity through training and focus on new technology (Technical).

    Cons

    Not good work in India. People Strive for survival and status quo. Do not let change the team and retain in same team to layoff in the end.Large layoffs happens again and again. No opportunity is given to change your team . Either get layoff or leave the company.Outlook for company getting worse day by day .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop mindless layoff and have a plan. Allow people to move to different units.
    motivation and trust on employees is a must
