    I have been working at Symantec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work-life balance is pretty good, and something that still exists is the culture that makes this a great company. One's peers really make it a worthwhile environment.
    There is opportunity for growth, it's one of the few major employers in town.
    Pretty good benefits in comparison to what's available.

    Cons

    Sales Managers don't tend to be coming from sales backgrounds, their sales skills are learned in a classroom, so their leadership is sometimes questionable. If tasked to perform the job over the span of a week, many would be clueless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is poor and the attitude is it will take a new hire 6+ months to feel comfortable in they training. With better sales managers and more time committed to new hires (by coaching/installing what a day in the life is like), there is a greater opportunity to increase revenue by ramping up training.
    There is a lack of cohesiveness between different departments within the same organization that are crucial to the overall success. This leads to a lack transparency between two separate groups who work hand in hand.
    Rolling out a Sales Process shouldn't take a year for a 200+ Inside Sales Organization. At most, 2 months. Too many contributors to an idea is like too many cooks in the kitchen. A consultant could have been hired or a proven director of inside sales to ramp up the organization much fast.
