Future So Bright?
EMC shareholders are scheduled to vote July 19 on the company's proposed acquisition by Dell Inc. Executives say the more than $62 billion deal is on schedule to close by the end of October, with the shareholder vote and approval from Chinese regulators the only remaining hurdles. But EMC employees still have lots of questions about the deal and what it means for their future.
EMC execs have been fielding questions from employees since shortly after the deal was announced last October. Recently, a new batch of questions and answers was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and they include a handful of inquiries about what life might be like at Dell Technologies, the new brand name the company will use once the deal closes.
Employees are concerned about whether they'll have to reapply for their jobs, whether their pay will remain the same, and how they should refer to themselves. Here are a few of the questions and answers, taken straight from the most recent filing.
