    I have been working at Symantec full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good work environment, decent pay, solid benefits, room to grow and improve career, new CEO has begun some great change initiatives to improve the organization, great incentive programs for all employees

    Cons

    At times, slow to make changes to processes/procedures and organization; new-hire product training is weak (but improving)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management in the past has not included frontline/individual contributors in major decisions, however the new CEO who took over in summer 2012 has begun to change many of things that prevented the company and employees from being successful. For example, there's a new organizational chart that includes fewer middle management positions. And technical support and product development are under the same VP, instead of individual silos. This will result in much faster improvements and better communication.

    Pros

    Location is in bay area, There are plenty of training opportunities for both individual contributors as well as management, there are online courses, and class room courses too. Plenty of opportunities to grow inside the organization using internal transfers between different groups of Symantec.

    Cons

    Constant uncertainty regarding company strategy, and your job.
