    I have been working at Symantec

    Pros

    Good salary compensation, expense account, and interesting projects. Benefits are solid, but medical is lacking.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic. Communication is top down from executives, and you're lucky if you receive it. The environment is very politically driven and people take more of a CYA approach (cover your ###). If you're not at the HQ or in Mt. View/SFO it will be difficult to get recognized and drive project initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to develop a feedback loop with your auxiliary locations rather than just mandating and pushing policy down on folks.
