    Sales managers are bosses, not leaders. No respect for their customers.

    I worked at Symantec full-time

    Pros

    - good people on the coal face
    - they pay on time
    - new CEO

    Cons

    - no leadership
    - no respect for the customer - only care about hitting quarterly target
    - managers play favourites
    - spread thin across a bastardised product set

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - be a leader, not a boss
    - spend less time driving a spreadsheet and more time helping enable your employees to be successful
    - try actually giving a toss about your customers and employees, it may improve morale and reputation
