I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You get to meet, work with, and establish relationships with a lot of great people.

Cons

Lots of management turnover and company seems to change priorities every quarter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Establish a consistent comp plan for salespeople and stick with it rather than change it every year
