    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is on par with similar companies. Benefits are good. The majority of people you'll work with are good hearted, talented employees who have the best intentions in mind.

    Cons

    Too many to list but these are toppers - 1) nearly all product lines are loosing market share so growth and profitability are limited; 2) marketing continually misses the mark with sales collateral so selling Symantec solutions is challenging; 3) HR is useless with its "you can find it on the HR web page" pat answer to questions; 4) Loyalty, passion, and hard work are quickly forgotten by leadership when the stock gets bashed and the next wave of layoffs are eminent ... sadly, you're on your own then, especially if you're in the later part of your working years. So much for the Symantec "family"!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop onboarding defectors from HP to fill leadership and senior management positions. If they were really had talent and innovative ideas to contribute they would have done so at HP where they had tenure. Please don't hire another "quack" CEO like Steve Bennett, the "please drink this cool aid" internal programs and policies he implemented gutted the company many loyal, passionate people who stood the test of time in the trenches ... until they were riffed.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
