I have been working at Symantec full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Local management has been good. Fellow employess have been easy to work with and pretty much everyon shares workload and responsibilities well. I has been a good local environment to work in.

Cons

Upper management has changed many times and so has attitude towards support workers. Have had three different CEOs now and at least that many regional managers. Sometimes it appears that they don't have a solid plan for the future with many of the products that they have as an offering.

    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    they pay you a lot of money, but you pay for it in the end

    Cons

    lots of hype and ego. very little humanity and true values that they tout themselves for. I wouldn't recommend this company. Terrible work life balance, although they will say they value this. the company is in major upheaval. I worked there for over 3 years and I never heard anyone speak about the satisfaction of the customer. It was always our performance, how good do we look, how much money do we make. The people that work here are at a very low level of evolution. If you want to be a workaholic and pat yourself on the back for your accomplishments, have at it. If you want to have a real life with real relationships, I would suggest working somewhere else.
