Pros

Talented people that want to do a good job. Pay and benefits are good and the office environment is very nice. Symantec also offers some remote opprtunities which can be a great way to balance your life.

Cons

Three CEO's in the past three years and two major reorganizations have damaged the culture and the work environment. Strategy keeps changing and people are leaving either by choice or by layoffs. Company is not in growth mode at the moment.

Advice to Management

Pick a strategy and stick to it.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are pretty good. Very flexible about your schedule, ability to work remotely, and decent work-life balance for many.

    Cons

    Company is losing market share, executive leadership is a revolving door, constant shift in strategy and organizational structure - they cannot seem to get it together. Many just are there to collect a paycheck and do as little as possible, not great cooperation across teams and groups, takes 100 people to make one tiny decision, which paralyzes anyone who actually wants to get things done. I feel totally disengaged and do not feel confident about the future of the company at this point.
