Change and Employee Talent Retention

Administrative Specialist (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I worked at Symantec full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible work schedule, middle management has open door policy.

ConsLay offs took place at least twice a year, there is constant reorganization and merging of acquired talent/products. The yearly review process is cumbersome and does not allow for performance changes that are related to medical leaves of absence.

Advice to Senior ManagementProducts need to have an end of life. Recruiters need to be move involved with the hiring of talent or the rehiring of talent that was laid off due to reorganization or such.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
