    Pros

    Symantec Corporation is a global company with a small company atmosphere. Most people know Symantec for its antivirus products, but it is a multi-dimensional company with plenty of opportunities.

    Cons

    Although Symantec does have that small company feel - where senior personnel prefer to be on a first-name basis with their various employees, it is a publically traded company. Sometimes this means that when the stock price is not performing well, people will find themselves layed-off (regardless of how much time they have been with the company).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most major companies go through lay-offs at some point. The one recommendation I would make is to do a better job of keeping key personnel instead of just "cutting across the board". I was only with Symantec for a little over 2 years, but in that time I witnessed people get layed-off that had been with the company for double-digit years. Ultimately, they moved on to other companies, but that meant a serious loss of talent for Symantec, and an immediate benefit for a rival company.

    Pros

    Great place with the new CEO. Things seem to be really coming together.

    Cons

    As an individual contributor, not much bad to say. Sometimes ask too many hours, but seldom of late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay progressive
