    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at EMC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, family feel, great work ethic. Good benefits, challenging work, good support from managers

    Cons

    Virtue signalling, about environment, women, diversity, inclusion and social conscience. All went out the window when sales figures dropped. Layoffs galore, and on a continuos thread. Very uncomfortable and uncertain environment when that is going on. And company looks fake, when it's all smiles and look how good we are to the outside world while it's wielding the layoff axe.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time focusing on R&D and catching up to the competition rather than blowing your own trumpet at how socially good you are and pushing sales of obsolete gear.
