I worked at Symantec full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Nice perks, great growth opps, laid back environment, colleagues are helpful and friendly, good benefits, great training opps, good management

Cons

communications are disconnected at times, as in all high tech you may struggle with work life balance, attrition should be lower. Could afford more minorities in management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

i had an awesome manager and would work for him again any day. Would add that the Diversity initiatives need to focus on management roles .

Recommends
Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Symantec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good collaborative working environment
    Friendly people

    Cons

    Management should focus more on employees' careers and back them during hard times. Re-orgs are very common and when those happen it's common at symantec to terminate employment of several good people. This hurts morale a lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after the employees

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Symantec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Symantec has a broad portfolio of solutions. As a sales account manager, that affords a lot of solutions to sell and help customers secure their information

    Cons

    Because there are so many solutions its hard to focus and become a subject matter expert. Some customers see security as a commodity which mess us less relevent. Lots of complex process involved internally
    Compensation is good if you are at your quota, this year quotas were set unrealistic high

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interested to see how are new CEO Steve Bennett will increase customer satisfacton and employee engagement
