Former Employee - Project Manager in Herndon, VA

I worked at Symantec full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great benefits, relaxed work environment, flexible schedule

Cons

Lack of capable upper management
Company has no clear direction: bites way more than it can chew and as a result the finished results of the projects are terrible
Very dysfunctional organization as a whole, every functional manager thinks only to their benefit

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees every once in a while and dont blame your short comings

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
