I worked at Symantec full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great team; excellent mid-level management; very accommodating schedule; remote work with moderate travel; great benefits; competitive salary

Cons

Not much bad to say. There was some shakeup at the top levels of the company shortly before my departure, but they must have been for the best, as I've watched the stock price rise.
