    Pros

    Free AV software for its employees. Decent employee stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    Poor benefits package, very few raises, make big changes every year that really aren't any changes at all. Lack of direction from senior management, and they don't reward employees who do well.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to make a change at Symantec, don't just change things up every year, start moving some of the managers that for some reason you treat so well out, and let other people with new ideas have a chance. Changing things up every year but keeping the same managers in place is nothing more than reshuffling the deck. Nothing is really going to change.
