I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I work on NetBackup and the product is stable, growing into new areas of Cloud backup and deduplication which allows us to do challenging and fun things at work

Cons

Slow release cycles and long testing phases breaks the pace of work sometimes.

Advice to Management

Challenge development to do more test driven development and reduce QE testing times.

    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 Management

    Good luck with the transformation!

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great pay, great benefits. Managers are generally cool, easy to talk to. Little benefits like ping-pong tables, fitness centers, cafeterias, etc. are awesome!

    Cons

    Some of the product managers are only there to make money. In my opinion, managers should have strong technical background. Some are business people, which really grinds my gears.

    Advice to Management

    Don't turn a software company into a hardware company.
