Better than I Expected

Principal Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsYou get to work with down to earth management, in a comfortable atmosphere, and great benefits. Because it is a large company it provides a lot of things to do. For the first time in my career I work with people I can respect since they are so knowledgeable and confident. I expected that I would be working in a grind factory from what I read of the reviews on glassdoor but I find that I "grind" harder than most. I work from home once a week and have a flexible working schedule. Honestly I love it but right now the Symantec 4.0 transition phase is kind of a downer with so many lay offs.

ConsLayoffs. The other side of things is that our budgets are getting cut so it is harder to accomplish tasks from a marketing point of view.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook for more synergistic abilities between products. Can Backup Exec and Net backup be combined?

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