    I worked at Symantec full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Ethics driven Company
    As an intern, I didn't find any politics, everybody was nice and helpful
    Good pay and nice cafe

    Cons

    Not everybody is smart (some people are just going along because they have been at the company long)
    Older workforce in general makes it less attractive for new interns and new hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more young people, and make changes fast (older workforce although good, is still resistant to change...just my impression though)

    Former Employee - Technical Support Manager in Boston, MA

    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company and will be here for a long time. Good benefits. Depending on the group you are with, work/life balance can be good - but that is not constant across all teams. Good place for entry level people to get a start and learn.

    Cons

    Large company lacking focus and direction, or I should say focus and direction seem to change each year. Upper management's main focus is just to cut costs of developing and supporting software without any concerns of impact to quality and customers. They also do a lot of employee surveys on what needs to be fixed, then upper management puts out a lot of "we hear you", but then do nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on building quality products and customer satisfaction will improve.
