Current Employee - Senior Principal IT Business Analyst in Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Symantec full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Competitive salary and benefits; HQ office located close to freeway; Security industry is poised to grow and so stock should do well.

Cons

Opportunities for growth are limited. Merit is NOT the top criteria for middle management, connections matter a lot. Company could do better in the Storage space.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide promising career paths to lower level employees. Currently these are severely curtailed, especially at lower levels.
