I worked at Symantec full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I would recommend absolutely EVERYONE that I worked with at Symantec. They have a lot of very smart people both in the business and technical arena. Despite working with teams spread across many time zones everyone communicated well and strives to build quality products.

It was amazing how they managed to encapsulate the small company feel within individual business units of such a large company.

Cons

They aren't afraid to lay staff off with little or no warning. It happened to me.

    I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good collaborative working environment
    Friendly people

    Cons

    Management should focus more on employees' careers and back them during hard times. Re-orgs are very common and when those happen it's common at symantec to terminate employment of several good people. This hurts morale a lot

    Advice to Management

    Look after the employees

    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 .
