good work life balance. less politics in my team. some managers are bad some are good. good place to learn and actually have a life
not fast paced if you like that. career growth is limited or slow if you are very ambitious.
Advice to Management
just increase the pace a little bit while maintaining the same values. don't move people between teams because of some bad managers.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Symantec (Herndon, VA).
Phone screening with networking and Linux technical questions. Next was a in person panel interview with several managers. The two main topics, aside from employment background and soft skills, that were covered were Networking and the Linux Command line. It is important to not guess, or take a stab at questions you don't know the answer 100% to. Its best to just say you don't know because you will lose points during the interview process.
