    Pros

    Everyone knows that the company is basically now two main parts, and it is planning to spin off and punt the "Information Management" i.e. Storage, Backup, etc. part under the "Veritas" name. The other main part is Security ie consumer and enterprise, Norton, etc etc.

    Security side is great, basically as long as you do the bare minimum, no difficulty in work, you get paid very well for doing very little. Security is highly profitable and stable, so you can easily coast along.

    Cons

    The storage side about to be spun off, however, is IMO being set up to fail. It is being (over)loaded with the dregs of the company, underperformers and the bottom 25% of the company, from top to bottom. I would be very very apprehensive if I were in Info Management, Storage, etc. groups being put onto the spinoff. Still lots and lots of politics on both sides and still far too many silos, fiefdoms and kingdoms with many bad "rulers".

    Advice to Management

    LOTS of folks are planning on jumping now that bonuses, options etc. paid out. Even in "stable" Security side, it's highly unstable. Nobody wants to be on Veritas side because the writing is on the wall when it comes to its spinoff.
