Pros

Stable company, and relatively good compensation. Symantec is a very process driven company, which is both a pro and a con.

Cons

Be prepared to work some odd hours, especially if your teams are scattered around the world. Team in Culver City don't seem to start work much before 11am, but they are there late almost nightly.
