    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.

    Former Employee - Director of Software Development in Lindon, UT
    Former Employee - Director of Software Development in Lindon, UT

    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    My local team was absolutely awesome! Great leadership, all team members contributed to success of the product and team. Most of us still keep in contact even after we were laid off in 2008 and 2010.

    Cons

    Too many people playing too much politics. Senior management is pathetic! They seem more interested in the bottom line and uninterested in the end user. Not a winning formula.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider the human factor - show more concern for users and employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
