    Former Employee - Marketing Intern in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Marketing Intern in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Symantec as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with in my team were open and helpful. I didn't see any politics played and my managers were very supportive. I got the data I needed for research, and I got a chance to voice a few concerns and opinions that were generally well received.

    Cons

    It can feel like it's hard to make an impact when you are an intern there, but I guess that's how it goes in bigger companies.

    Pros

    Benefits and working environment were excellent. Their applause system by co-workers was also very innovative and a motivator.

    Cons

    bad turn over. Symantec is known as a binge and purge company, hiring and laying off people per project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less management, more individual contributors.
