Good technical leadership for a couple of years then YIKES!

Pros
None.

Quite a few.

Great
Training Development Lead (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJune 20, 2018
Great place to start a training career, I learned so much while working there. Made many work connections that helped further my career. Even when the company had a merger they kept me on as long as they could.

Great place to work, but contract was short duration
Senior Software Engineer (contractor) (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 19, 2018
The Dell people are great to work with. The project lead spend time getting we new contractors up to speed with the code base, and helped us in other ways. The bad is the group in Dell only had funding for just one quarter (3 months), so we started getting good just in time to leave! This was not our fault of the manager's: just Dell corporate policy. They have a great, varied cafeteria on campus, and an on-site branch of my bank!
Pros
Great workplace
Cons
short contract duration

Prep for Sale
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Herndon, VAJune 18, 2018
Focus placed on lowering resource cost to improve margin on existing book of business and improve view of company business unit for sale. Work was migrated to off shore resources or resource brought on shore under work visa that would work at lower rates.

Dramatic culture change post 'merger'
Various Positions (Former Employee) –  Round Rock, TXJune 18, 2018
Use to be highly innovative and open. Changes caused a big culture shift following the EMC merger. Can no longer recommend working here. Quite a few departures across the board as a result.

Not a horrible company to work for...not great though
Sr. Telecom Engineer (Former Employee) –  Pleasanton, CAJune 15, 2018
I've been with them from their small Documentum beginnings, so the growing pains were always hard but the people were really great in the 2000's. Cultures change, time moves on and creates more changes. Not a horrible company. Less of the old, good people still work there.
Pros
Flexible schedules
Cons
East Coast culture

Great Place to Work
Advisor, Product Management (Former Employee) –  Hopkinton, MAJune 15, 2018
I loved working at Dell EMC and would love to work back at this company. The culture was great, it was definitely diverse, and the family and work balancing was just the way I would expect it to be (loose). Everyone wants to see you grow and be successful. If you want to switch positions and try advancing yourself internally, you can do this without a problem after 18 months of being in your present position.
Pros
Advancement Opportunity / Compensation / Benefits
Cons
Restructuring Always Occurs

Sr. Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Hopkinton, MAJune 14, 2018
Dell purchased EMC in 2016. For the next several years the corporate strategy focuses on driving sales and revenue while assimilating the two companies. Flexibility is key to success in this environment.
Pros
Highly intelligent people, great product line
Cons
Significant downsizing associated with the EMC acquisition
