Pros

- Sporadic exposure to talented individuals - Well known brand that has recurring revenue & established customers - Good WLB typical with larger companies

Cons

- Poor management, mediocre leadership and silo-ed thinking helps Symantec enjoy a malaise for years - Simply hard for a Symantec to compete with more innovative, focused companies that are killing it in mobile & cloud - Baggage of Symantec and Norton brand do not bode well for new products and more modern customers - Managing teams to high performance is not encouraged due to Symantec's fear of litigation - Too much dependence of FUD (Fear uncertainly and doubt) in their marketing

Advice to Management

Current re-org is energizing employees and provides hope for the future! But remember, the strategy and re-focus is the easier part - the proof will be in the execution
