Pros

Working with some of the smartest people on the planet. We are the best because we have the best people.

Cons

Long hours, less bonuses and stock lookback. SYMC has been getting cheaper and cheaper on benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I can understand the .25c sodas but how cheap are you when you do away with the Aspirin?

    I have been working at Symantec

    Pros

    I am on a good team with a good manager. It is an OK place to work. I spent 10 years working for another tech co., much larger, and it was much worse.

    Cons

    Outsourcing IT. The company has grown via acquisition, too fast - it lacks a clear identity. The problem with Symantec is that it lives and competes in an environment where we have allowed corporations to have things pretty much their own way for almost 30 years - all we ask is that they are successful. It should be no surprise if we have a lot of companies that are good at making money, and not much else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid the wall street mindset like the plague. It may not seem like it, but this is yesterday's news - no place for a cutting-edge tech company to be.

    There is a vast amount of knowledge within the people here and they are pretty open about sharing it with you.
