    I worked at Symantec

    Pros

    Rich history, great brand recognition in "Norton". The company still has great potential.

    Cons

    Has lost its identity, struggling to find new direction, example: They have dissolved their Consumer Business Unit, probably due to the fact they have not released a new product of any significance in years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your stock price has risen this past year with the arrival of the new CEO, but this is largely due to the announcement of corporate restructuring and the global employee RIF. It is not the result of new product or service offerings. Need senior leadership with bold new ideas relevant to today's mobile and social networking market place.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
