Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

Great opportunities to learn at a large, relevant company. Lots of resources.

Cons

Limited opportunities to move around and constant change.
Too much cost control and limited investment in employee development and growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create and clear a path for high performers to move around. Pick a clear winning strategy for the team to rally behind. Used the latest and greatest products that customers use.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern  in  Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Symantec full-time for 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)
