Politics and personal agendas take a front seat and the customer and company come last

Manager (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

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

ProsThere are some bright people trying to make a difference not only for the customer but also for the benefit of the company and the world. The potential at a company this large to innovate and transform the world with their pure concentration of talent and technology is endless. The company is currently going through a internal change which should help calm some of the cons below.

ConsThis company is entrenched with politics and executive simply trying to move hirer up the ladder and build their empires in what ever way they can. The management is constantly telling employees they will improve but when it comes down to it, they simply are lying to the employees so they can get a temporary boost in productivity to make the quarterly numbers.

Advice to Senior ManagementA major overhaul of the company structure is needed, and some reorganization is required to help benefit the employees and customers. I hope your new directions help change the company for the better and the problem areas are fixed. Good Luck!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
