I love working at Symantec!

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsI 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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementChallenge development to do more test driven development and reduce QE testing times.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
