Implementation Delivery Engineer (Current Employee), Bentonville, AR – April 15, 2013
Pros: benefits are great, good initial salary, management is very hands off
Cons: annual raises are poor, internal transfer is lacking, management is very hands off
EMC is a great place to work for for the initial job you hire on at. There is limited advancement and raises as the implied meaning of the company is to hire outsiders. They do not endorse internal promotions and raises compared to other companies I have read about. An average raise when being "promoted" is around 10-15% regardless of the pay scale – more... of the new job.
The benefits are amazing and one of a kind but management also seems to be lacking. There have been periods where I have had a boss that I have never met in person or go months without talking to. They do not seem to value the concerns of the employee very highly and what is best for them. – less
