    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Good luck with the transformation!
