    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Capable CEO Upgrading the talent across the board Process excellence oriented Investing in front line employees Culture focused on getting the best from people Great assets (e.g. customers, partners, technology ingredients)

    Cons

    Highly political environment Important to recognize that alphas thrive. All others are prone to be victims of alphas so it is buyer beware if this is not the kind of culture for you especially if considering management positions. Ability to innovate is still needed to be relevant for the future Investment in the 10 new offers is progressing slowly if at all Market moving faster than they are (e.g. FireEye)

    Advice to Management

    Organic growth is critical to success however the product organization is riddled with politicians who lacks creativity, let alone authenticity. This is not to say that good people aren't in the organization, but they are being suppressed by those more interested in being promoted and accumulating power than delivering great products for customers. This is widely known within the rank and file who are very fearful of retaliation for the truth. Nonetheless, these truths have not seemingly reached the CEO who is very capable within 300 degrees but continues to have this critical 60 degree blind spot in part due to political mastery on the part of some of his leaders and his tendency to focus on process versus invention.
