    I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonably progressive thinking management that fully embraces and supports agile practices, remote teams, flex hours and locations, etc. Good benefits and bonus plans. Well known products with good reputation. The company is putting a lot of investment into mobile.

    Cons

    Company still in transition for more than a year so expect fairly big changes and announcements every month or so. Top management and talent have left, but new blood has come in, still it's hard to hire top talent when competing in the Valley with Google, Facebook, Apple, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to pay the price for top talent, get rid of remaining older corporate processes and complete the transition to being a more competitive, faster moving organization.

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

    Pros

    The company is quite progressive in that they support telecommuting, have good benefits, and there were lots of bonuses and perks, as least in my opinion (never having enjoyed life at other Silicon Valley firms).

    Cons

    Very siloed, seems to be struggling to make the shift to new economy, has to avoid getting tagged as bloatware.
