I worked at Symantec full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Nice perks, great growth opps, laid back environment, colleagues are helpful and friendly, good benefits, great training opps, good management

Cons

communications are disconnected at times, as in all high tech you may struggle with work life balance, attrition should be lower. Could afford more minorities in management.

Advice to Management

i had an awesome manager and would work for him again any day. Would add that the Diversity initiatives need to focus on management roles .

    I worked at Symantec as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Growing company with many acquisitions
    A very well recognized brand
    Worldwide presence

    Cons

    Not able to keep pace with its growth
    Silo-ed divisions
    A wide spread sense of uncertainty over ones ability to keep their job or position

    Advice to Management

    Need to ensure better integration of its new acquisitions. Symantec's strategy to grow as fast as Cisco and other's directly or indirectly competing with it led it on a path of acquiring new companies at a very fast pace. However, in its hurry to do so, the company was not able to ensure proper integration of these assets often resulting in shareholder value loss instead of gain as it was intended to be.
