    Pros

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

    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

    I have been working at Symantec full-time for 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.
