Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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 .
