    Too much favoritism; bullying is tolerated

    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, collaborative atmosphere, good place for women and LGBTs to work, some excellent managers--and I hear that the new CEO is making good changes

    Cons

    Terrible managers are both tolerated and protected. Complaints to senior management and HR are useless.
    Employees are responsible for carving out their own career paths. Forget about receiving help or guidance from your manager--it isn't going to happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt a zero-tolerance stance on bullying. No one should have to take time off from work because their job made them sick.
    Establish a career center to help employees chart their career goals and develop action plans for achieving those goals.
