Current Employee - Principal Product Marketing Manager in Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Symantec full-time (less than an year)

Pros

You 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.

Cons

Layoffs. 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 ManagementAdvice

Look for more synergistic abilities between products. Can Backup Exec and Net backup be combined?

    I have been working at Symantec full-time

    Pros

    Flex time, casual atmosphere, opportunities for those willing to seek them out. benefits seem to be pretty good. Great campus, cafeterias.

    Cons

    Too many lay-offs and changes in strategy, reorgs seem to be an annual event. Lack of clear direction. Laying off seasoned employees and hiring too many new employees who do not understand the requirements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to legacy employees, make sure you engage with them and include them among all the new hiring.
