    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Symantec pays well compared to similar companies. It provides excellent benefits. It also respects work life balance most of the time. It's a big company so you can change career without changing company.

    Cons

    Highly political between departments and at middle and upper management levels. Individual contributors level is ok and is much better. It's extremely hard to get things done. Image is important. Pays more focus to talkers than doers.


  2. "Good place to work."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Symantec has a good stable of products and seems to have the strategy solidified after years of ambiguity. Sr. Management has solidified as well which has povided much needed stability.

    Cons

    Opportunities for career advancement and mobility within the company are very limited. Back end and reporting systems are very difficult to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be quicker to market in growing solutions areas (i.e.MDM). Being slow to the market continually puts sales and the company in defensive positon.
