I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good salary, good people locally.

Cons

Product teams spread across globe- led to communication, timing & management issues.
Virtual HR for remote offices with 200+ people not a good idea.
Not enough innovation, just integration, integration, integration of acquired technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead by example, not by powerpoint.

    Pros

    Slow - you can hide out and not get much done if you like
    Bureaucratic - it's about managing up and managing expectations down, and then just anticipating what your boss wants and doing that before they ask even if your boss has no clue and just responds to customer demands without thought

    Cons

    Nothing if you like the Pros.
