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

Pros

The company culture is right in the midst of significant change, but one consistent value is giving (well-deserving and proven) employees the opportunity to take on different roles and responsibilities.

Cons

Historically, it's been the lack of risk-taking and tough decision-making due to the "overly nice" culture. This is changing, though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The 4.0 values are the right ones. Please keep living and demonstrating them day in and day out.

    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.

    I have been working at Symantec full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's an important industry, with world-wide impact. This makes for meaningful and satisfying work if you embrace the vision of the company. I'm impressed with the top-down communication as the new CEO--Steve Bennett--makes sweeping changes to revitalize this company.. as he did with his previous companies. There is a great deal of excitement in the company about its future.

    Cons

    As a large company, you may have to work hard to remain engaged with the larger vision.
