Pros

Company grew aggressively during my tears at Symantec, and the was continually new opportunities to move and learn.
Great, smart people throughout the company.

Cons

As the company grew into a large company, the culture and entrepreneurial spirit was less obvious, and the company became more of a "big company"

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are pretty good.
    Good work/personal life balance.
    Not a hard or stressful place to work.
    Ok if you mostly want a paycheck and just surviving satisfies your goals.

    Cons

    Like many large and relatively old companies, this one has been thoroughly taken over by management that can't compete in the industry. There is a dual career path in theory but in practice if you aren't a manager you will find yourself ignored at the whim of management that often doesn't have a clue. If living Bonjour Laziness is your thing, this is the place for you. If you are primarily technical, have real talent, and have any kind of ambition to make a difference, there are much better place to go, unless perhaps you want an easy spell while collecting a paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing less than a wholesale reformulation of the corporate culture can arrest this company's gradual slide into irrelevance.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
