I have been working at Symantec

Pros

good pay for a job

Cons

no diversity----low-mid-top management are mostly India-born with a culture that is more of hierarchical than innovative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. bring diversity to the company and management
2. less bullshxt (victory plan...that changes every 6mon with "leaders"), more hard work.

    I have been working at Symantec

    Pros

    Symantec hired me in a time of need. I have loved working there. The people are great, my manager is great and i feel appreciated for what i do. The envirnment is relaxed and typically there isnt much micromanagement from what i have seen. i would reccomend anyone to work for Symantec.
    Also, GREAT benefits

    Cons

    the systems are a little outdated. The processes are confusing, and there is so much change all the time that you are constantly asking everyone what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees know what is going on. the privacy of the company may be normal in this type of envirnment but seems like everyone is always afraid of losing their job. There is ZERO job security
