Isilon: Washington’s Best Workplaces 2012 Extra-large Company Gold Medalist

The EMC team here in Seattle is honored to be chosen as the #1 place to work in a recent ranking by the Puget Sound Business Journal. All of us here at Isilon are not at all surprised – Isilon is energized, fast-paced, and filled with the best and brightest. We’re a team that believes in what we are doing and are all here because we really want to be part of Isilon.

Seattle is a hot market right now for talent. It’s always been a home for innovation—think Boeing and airplanes, Microsoft and software, Amazon and online shopping, and Starbucks and coffee. But among those outstanding companies, EMC is now ranked #1.

Sujal Patel, President of EMC Isilon, says it best. “We create a culture that enables people to feel great about our mission and their role in it.”

EMC continues to grow in Seattle, and we are proud to be a part of this community. Thanks to our entire Seattle workforce for helping to make EMC the best employer in the Emerald City!
