I worked at Symantec full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great informal training ground if you show initiative and take the opportunity. Fantastic, well respected external brand particularly in consumer. 1st line managers are, mostly, excellent.

Cons

You come across unhappy people who choose to stay and whine about the company, but don't make changes themselves. A number of staff who (comparably speaking) "coast", many who are 4+ years. Not many career opportunities for a company of this size.

Advice to Management

"4th largest software company in the world" - hardly motivating! No one should brag about being number 4! Best of luck with new CEO. Big opportunity. I wish Symantec well.
