I have been working at Symantec full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good people, great technology, good customer facing experience, interesting projects, lots of freedom shown in how you manage your work, good training ethic, keen to reward and recognise contribution.

Cons

Completely sales focussed and adopts a very transactional approach, Need to become more solutions focussed to broaden the experience and make the company more competitive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop paying lip service to solution selling and make it a reality. We have the technology and the people.

    I worked at Symantec full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Tons of career opportunity. Great culture. Respect and trust of the individual.

    Cons

    chronic post-sales support issues made customer experience spotty which created a challenging selling environment. Perception that solutions are best-in-class when in reality they are often only "good enough".
