Sorry, wouldn't recommend working for this fortune 500 company

Technical Account Manager (Current Employee)

ProsThe company has a lot of benefits, but the company failed to help employees use them. The company purchasing and commuter plan is great. The at&t discount is also good. It's great that we get free Norton PC products to use at home. I'm sorry I really don't have much good things to say.

ConsH.R. is in India, Takes forever to get a response from H.R. , Payroll and etc. I.T. is also outsourced to India. Horrible. No Sick days - use your vacation days "PTO Days". It seems that any time you have an Issue you have to contact the benefits provider. Oh you didn't get your benefits card, well you need to call Aetna and they should take care of that for you. Oh you didn't get your dental card call your provider. Your local site will most likely not have a Support staff. No paid lunch

Advice to Senior ManagementBring support functions back to the U.S., we are a US company! Does sprint nextel ring a bell.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Symantec


    Pros: Some of the health benefits offered have been claimed by dr.s themselves as "the best they have seen in their office." Management is extremely flexible… Cons: Merit raises have been halted. Could be due to economy. I don't… Advice to Senior Management: If you notice issues with employees that are evident to the whole team, YOU and only you have the ability to make a difference and… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
