Pros

Symantec is a great company to work for.

Cons

Finding new projects for the group which has discontinued products.

Advice to Management

Even since the merger with Veritas, Symantec has gone through some tough time. Maybe things could have been better if senior management made different decisions back then.

    Pros

    Very flexible, department I was in able to turn around requests very quickly. Good system set up to handle help requests. I liked the telecommuting policy a lot.

    Cons

    Kind of messy. I was never sure what management was doing or what the policies were, although that may be because I was a contractor.

    Advice to Management

    More communication. I wasn't sure what was going on with most of the management changes that happened when I was there.
