    I worked at Symantec full-time (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 Management

    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

    Pros

    Large American computer company. Advertised as the fourth largest in the world. Working for them in America could be pleasant experience.

    Cons

    Function of the business seems to be focused upon short term outlooks. Lots of hot air around "Core Business". Product lifecycles are short "somewhere in the "DOG" quadrant"; rapid acquisition and assimilation of 3rd party products leads to a RAD approach in delivery and reliance on support personnel and poorly remunerated customer facing roles. "Wipping" Boy approach to Corporate Responsibility. Vertically integrated business functions forms for an inbred and near sighted career contribution to a resume (very inward looking), difficult to transfer other roles.

    Advice to Management

    Try leading by example.
