I have been working at Symantec full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Some good people; most want the best for the company, customers and other employees; some interesting projects

Cons

Lack of organization, too many managers, politics and personal interests were left unchecked and often derailed doing the right thing, too many people doing the same or similar work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good luck with the transformation!

    Pros

    New CEO is shaking things up in a good way. Very optimistic for the future.

    Cons

    Company is going through a lot of organizational changes that teams need to quickly realign and figure out new roles & responsibilities in order to execute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rely so much on consulting firms to help with transformation, put the right people in place and we should be able to do this ourselves.

    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They actively encourage team work and solutions. Support to teams is top down and people are most often the valued assets.

    Cons

    Not always open to tele-commuting. HR is not as responsive to information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to fully review employees who are productively working at a maximum.
