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

    Pros

    Depending on which team you land on, people can be awesome. Salary is good.

    Cons

    Some people on some teams, all the bureaucracy that is required for even the tiniest thing, and how that significantly affects all human processes. The way that the company chose to use in order to letting us all know that we were going to be unemployed was absolutely dreadful and substandard. I would not have imagined a company so large would do that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people as they are: human beings. And don't outsource things as important as severance calculations or pay. You will end up paying more than you should have and your former employees will end up hating your company and talking down on it to everybody they know.

    I worked at Symantec full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great team members - market leading products.

    Technology on the forefront.

    Cons

    Management are completely out of touch with the challenges, the sales teams are facing.
    They do not show any respect or understanding - are hardly even visiable.

    I have never in my life worked in a company with such an incompetent senior sales management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and show respect.
