Difficult Place to work
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 9, 2014
Pros: work from home, flexible schedule, high quality local team members
Cons: low pay, very long hours, upper management goals conflict with local teams.
The local teams and managers work very long hours in order to please the customers in any way possible (which is our job). Unfortunately upper management has a different set of goals so we are torn between pleasing the customers and administrative metrics. We are able to work from host often when not out in front of customers so that's a place, but – more... that also means we work long hours at night quite a bit. The culture is best described as do whatever it takes to achieve the goal, but often process and procedure bog everyone down. – less

Great place to work
ASC Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHJuly 28, 2014
EMC is a great place to work. On a typical day, you will contact your customers and confirm times to be onsite for break/fix. Most of the time the customers are very pleasant and happy to see you. As for your co-workers and you, it is a very team based environment. There are many times that I have had to contact a co-worker for assistance.

Pros: freedom to organize and create own work space.
Cons: advancement within the organization.
Conservative company, hard to advance within the organization.

Learned new software application with Oracle but advancement within organization was limited.

Good Sales Company, Good Products, Not so great culture
Pre-sales Technical Consultant (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 22, 2014
Pros: good company, smart people, good compensation
Cons: a bottom line sales culture. make money your in, miss a quota and your out.
Support the EMC sales staff in their Dallas office. Help to qualify and validate an opportunity based on the customers IT Needs/Pain/Risks. After performing an initial discovery, I would run analysis tools to gather technical data if necessary for designing a solution. Depending on the need and how it matched up with EMC's Hardware/Software portfolio, – more... I would then design and quote a solution. Finally, I would present the solution to the customer, usually through a proposal and executive summary, along with the sales team answering any technical questions they may have.

I learned a lot about sales and sales processes. I learned a lot about EMC portfolio of hardware and software products.

I worked with a lot of smart people who are very driven and committed to their work.

The hardest part of the job was being everything to everybody. As a technical person I reported to a technical manager. As a supporting member of the sales team, I also reported to a sales manager. Making both happy was sometimes a challenge.

The job offered an unbelievable amount of resources and training. – less

Overall decent company to work at. Benefits are good. Products and Salaries not kept competitive (typical problems that come with working at a large company). Work Life Balance is good, long hours are expected but working from home can be arranged to offset this.

Great experience but not without its hearthaches

We work with the coolest technology in the world!

The hardest part of the job is a lack of clear direction. Employees work hard, but then find find out we are are working on the wrong thing or that the project had all together changed. This was discouraging.
