Application Developer 2 (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – March 8, 2017
EMC is a decent company to work for. The facilities are well kept and the other employees are rather nice. The benefits package is top notch, with ok 401k, super healthcare, and a pension system. Employee advancement is sporadic. Most advancement is due to an old employee retiring. There are some departments that have much more turn over than others, and I wouldn't want to work for the manager of those departments. It is a very stable company that is not prone to rounds of layoffs and hiring binges like other corporations in the area. Corporate culture continues to lag behind the norms, It is very 1990's, still getting used to the idea of wearing polo's instead of suit coats.
Excelent healthcare, downtown location, stability
Stuck with old thinking, Some jobs have no advancment.

Manager (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 29, 2015
No kidding. I have worked at a couple of other companies, including another major insurance company, and EMC is at the top in all categories. What a relief and refreshing change to look forward to going to work at a place where the management actually cares about you, not only as an employee, but as a person. This includes all the managers and support people in the Home Office.
Stable work hours, great benefits, fantastic office location and caring leadership.
Some people who have worked here a long time have no idea how lucky they are to be here.

Completed large loss reports and evaluated exposure(s) in order to set appropriate reserves. Worked with defense counsel and attended mediations which involved a lot of traveling.

Claims Adjuster II (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – January 20, 2014
quantity of work was above average but varied greatly between inside and outside department staffs which were kept separated rather than joined. When working away from office meeting customers and clients was most joyful part of the job but was reduced due to adjustments directed by management. Quality benefits was second to none.
