    I have been working at Symantec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting, varied work. There's always something to do, and always something to be working on. New projects come on-stream all the time.

    Cons

    Teams can be spread across timezones, which makes getting replies from colleagues difficult at times. The company doesn't pay overtime. At annual review time there's always a "stretched budget" which means that pay increases aren't great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT outsourcing is a disaster. Consider paying your talented engineers more.
