    Pros

    Symantec expands by acquisition. And they're known for not doing such a good job at that. I concur. Having come from an acquisition, I can say that I'm still not integrated. On the plus side, I'm left alone to do my job and I have excellent flexibility and work/life balance.

    Cons

    On the minus side, my salary is not up to industry standards (although apparently it's high compared to others in my group) and I feel that some colleagues just aren't respected. Some managers are okay, some are terrible. But I guess you'll find that anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move a little faster when you're making decisions... it really shouldn't take so long to get things done at all.

    No opinion of CEO
