    Former Employee - Field Sales in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best thing was that they weren't afraid to admit internally when their product wasn't the best and go BUY the company that was the best. Healthcare benefits were generous. There were a few great people there, mostly through acquisitions.

    Cons

    Company lost focus with so many acquisitions and became very management heavy. They'd buy a company, the key people would quit, and we'd be stuck trying to become instant experts on a product backed by a skeleton crew. Outsourced IT was terrible. A steady bleeding of top technical (sales, eng, support) people made things tougher; they were replaced by a mixed bag of people. Senior management made a number of major mistakes before the new CEO came in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure what to add, I worked there and gave my input then.
