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

    Pros

    Good people. Very ethical. Strong brand(s) with huge global customer/partner base. Opportunities still abound as the World continues on the data driven path with the Cloud becoming pervasive. Security is key and there are other opportunities surrounding it for Symantec.

    Cons

    Difficulty currently in deciding direction and implementing strategy. A lot of shifting of resources along with some lack of resources being assigned to areas of importance. 3 CEOs in 20 months, and almost all new top management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get closer to the products and their current and potential markets to help drive direction and resource allocation. Be sure that key players are enabled and supported to make decisions.
