Why work at EMC?

I sat down this morning to write a response to Scott Waterhouse’s post on the subject of why someone would want to be an EMC employee.  I had a few paragraphs written before I scrapped it and started over.  It’s not that I couldn’t write a nice lengthy post on the subject … it’s that I already have written several.

Why re-invent the wheel?  Just earlier this week I wrote about the 2008 Sustainability Report, and what it meant to me as an employee to read it.  Prior to that I had written about the way social media adoption at EMC was helping us all wear more hats.  And before that I wrote a series of posts on my experiences at EMC World 2009.  And that’s just in the last month.

So rather than try to recapture the moment and sloppily sum up what I felt when I was writing those posts, I’ll just say this.  Spend a half-hour here, look at my posts with the heading of “EMC” and see what about working here inspires me to write, usually on my own time and my own dime, about working here. I’m not writing about products, I’m writing about life. So what is it that gets me fired up enough about life at EMC to want to put posts together?  Read those posts.  That’s my EMC, and that’s why I work here and why I want talented passionate people around the world to join me in making this place continuously better.

I can’t offer more than that.
