    I worked at Symantec full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, freedom is given to employees to take decisions in their work area. large number of products hence scope for changing projects or teams if not happy with one team. Even during the bad times company did not

    Cons

    Leadership was not consistent, each leader came and made major decisions but did not walk the talk and it impacted the business. Leaders tried to keep all the employees but some employees were let go as there was no business for few products. Decisions were made quarter to Quarter depending on the results. Long term vision was not matching with the market changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Symantec - Veritas Acquision was a bad decision, now the decision to reverse it is a good one.
