    Former Employee - Program Manager  in  San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Program Manager in San Jose, CA

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

    Pros

    Great place for mid level employees to get experience and prove themselves
    In some departments inter-office politics are prevalent
    most of the people that work there are good people - a few have ruined some really good teams
    Able to work from home 1 - 2 days a week

    Cons

    Recruiters are promoted to manage departments/teams they have no experience with
    A couple of managers micro manage
    Managers not being held accountable for how they manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at mid level managers. A caouple really need to be educated on how to treat people.

    Excited initially; post acquisition- an opportunity to help the "big guy" get it right and do it from the inside.

    Former Employee - Software Developer  in  Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Software Developer in Austin, TX

    I worked at Symantec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you self-motivated you have the time and resources to explore new ideas and solutions solve real world problems. Explore technical interests and improve one's professional prowess.

    Cons

    Nobody cares; that is, unless they care to take your idea for their own. Pecking order informally enforced. Many, many sad souls drearily drifting through their day. That's no way to live life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut middle management and empower team members. If you don't work on product or sell product then there better be a very good reason "we" let you interrupt those who do.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
