SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 9, 2016
Large global company with excellent pay and benefits. As part of the professional services division, I saw lots of change as EMC expanded the consulting practice and ultimately combined it with the product delivery services team.
Principal SW Engineer (Former Employee) – Hopkinton, MA – December 29, 2015
EMC has been one of the most influential data storage providers for several decades and for the last 19 years have had the honor to work there working on leading edge storage products. The pay is competitive with attractive bonus incentives and better than average benefits. The work culture at EMC is diversified and dynamic. You are challenged to be a team contributor and make a difference. You'll learn much from the co-workers that are among the best and brightest in IT and thru the company training classes offered at EMCU to advance your career. Software projects can have challenging inter-departmental dependencies. It was always pleasing how well these departments would work together at crunch time to make a schedule. The sense of personal responsibility and pride required to make that happen so consistently is a testament to the people that work there.
Dynamic work environment, career advancement opportunities
Job postings for EMC locations in Massachusetts are few
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Apex, NC – December 29, 2015
It was mostly a daily routine working at EMC, so I had all the knowledge I need to know to complete every task. From packing and wrapping to picking and shipping. Every employee was always nice and generous and never had any problems with any of them. The hardest part of the job were just orders that I had to pick that didn't have the right information given on them and go through a process to have it correct.
Maintenance Ops Specialist (Current Employee) – Franklin, MA – December 23, 2015
For my department I can say that unless you want to be a supervisor there is no advancement. Trying to advance to Senior takes a long time and they have no real guidance. Work/Life balance, sometimes aspects are great: work from home 1 day/wk as after 6 months of contractor work, 2 days/wk for full-time, leave early for holidays. The only time Work Life balance doesn't work is End of Quarter. In my department do no expect to have a New Years Eve with friends and Family because you will be in the office until midnight processing purchase orders that customers send. They do feed you though. Flexible work hours.
I love my healthcare benefits!
As a whole it is a great company and it will be interesting to see what happens if/when DELL takesover.
Principle Systems Integration Engineer (Former Employee) – Hopkinton, MA – December 23, 2015
I enjoyed most of the time working for EMC. I ended up becoming the manager of the DVT test group, but due to personal situations, asked to become an individual contributor. the manager they brought in didn't know how to manage people and made it difficult for me as well as the rest of the group. This caused a lot of problems.
EMC was in the process of being bought by Dell, so they made an effort to reduce the salary expense. They laid off a lot of senior people.
Production Associate (Current Employee) – Apex, NC – December 16, 2015
A typical day at work would be building and cabling around 5 cabs a night learning different systems and reading AI' and TI's if required. The hardest part of the job is finishing on time and the most enjoyable part is learning new step on each system.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Apex, NC – December 1, 2015
Very nice place to work co workers were pleasant had support from management from team leader to plant manger, job sercuirty was hardest part of the job. learned a lot about SAP and how inventory is kept with it great tool. Each day was exciting and challenging with each product that was built.
production associate (Current Employee) – Franklin, MA – December 1, 2015
There isn't much room to move up in EMC at this current time due to the Merge to DELL. I have worked here for almost 4 years and i am still a contractor. I was told multiple times that i would be converted so i waited and i worked hard but i am still a contractor. EMC is a great company if your in the right department or position. The only problem is that its a very internal company if you want to get anywhere you have to know people. You could be the hardest worker in the building but the laziest worker could get promoted because his dad knows the boss.
Enterprise Community Manager (Former Employee) – Hopkinton, MA – November 30, 2015
EMC is a great place to work if you love a fast-paced environment where priorities can quickly change. People who thrive in this type of environment are everywhere you look, and there is a strong sense of camaraderie. Loved my time at EMC.
Flexible work schedules; work from home opportunities; always opportunities to progress
Very professional company with very talented employees
Sr. Consultant (Director) Strategy and Bus. Dev. (Former Employee) – Hopkinton, MA – November 23, 2015
EMC was a wonderful workplace. I learned a lot, worked with top notch individuals and was very productive and contributed to the growth of the company. My experience with the company and its environment was extremely positive.
Very professional environment that is encouraging continued growth and success
Pockets of Inefficiencies - The company is doing its best to trim these places but not fast enough.
SENIOR PRODUCT MARKETING MANAGER (Current Employee) – Hopkinton, MA – November 14, 2015
Experience highly depends on your management and immediate team. Sometimes upper management does not handle communication clearly. Can be difficult to navigate as it is a very large company with complicated pieces.
Good compensation but not great. Great benefits. Excellent work life balance. Can be difficult to advance.
Rock-solid technology, but EMC still has a reputation that precedes it to many customers in the market. The pay is decent, but you will succeed at EMC (largely) if management wants you to succeed. If you get saddled with a ton of accounts that don't like EMC, a reasonable conjecture is that management doesn't like you. Strange experience all around.
Pay is good, and benefits are slightly above average
Company culture, lack of leadership, lack of direction
