I worked at Symantec as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

My hours were from when I got out of school until around 5-6. They taught me everything I needed to know and gave me all the material to learn from. Aside from that, you only needed some experience with the Microsoft Office suite

Cons

My boss was the worst part. Learn to get on their good side, fast.

    Open, kind, helpful and hard working culture. There is a ton of great talent working at Symantec, you can learn a lot have have a great opportunity to progress within the company.

    Cons

    Endless layers of management. Lack of consistent goals setting and importance to meeting deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Symantec needs to eat more of their own cooking. It's embarrassing how few of our own products we use.
