I worked at Symantec full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Awesome team, great CEO and nice manager. Campus location has great volleyball court, tennis court and ping pong tables

Cons

Big company and dis-engagement in management in some teams. Lots of ways to get distracted, not limited to coffee breaks, ping pong, tennis, volleyball and other sports

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to keep your subordinates motivated

    I have been working at Symantec

    Pros

    New CEO is shaking things up in a good way. Very optimistic for the future.

    Cons

    Company is going through a lot of organizational changes that teams need to quickly realign and figure out new roles & responsibilities in order to execute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't rely so much on consulting firms to help with transformation, put the right people in place and we should be able to do this ourselves.

    I have been working at Symantec full-time

    Pros

    My coworkers are the best group of people one could hope to work with.

    Cons

    upper management; yes-man mentality within the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it's true that a company can't succeed without the individual contributors at the bottom, it'd be wise to quit shipping these jobs to some place else.
