Pros

This company has good benefit, and the work load is not to heavy. You could easily balance work and live. The relationship between employees is quite simple and friendly.

Cons

The teamwork between different department is not closely. Management could not integrate the several merging and acquisitions companies smoothly. Many talented products are finally failed after merging and acquisitions.

Advice to Management

Listen to your people.
Make changes fast.

    I worked at Symantec full-time

    Pros

    This place keeps you on your toes, which can be good or bad. It was definitely good in the sense that the work/people will encourage you to become more efficient. The 360 feedback is useful for improving job performance. The salary is pretty good compared to most places.

    Cons

    New management and continuous micro-management caused what I think is probably one of the worst employee turnover rates that exists anywhere. Management is totally out of touch with reality, over-estimates on work, which leaves a heavy burden for the team. Despite many attempts by team members to explain the issues, management did nothing. 80% of the dev team staff left as a result, and things have continued to go downhill since. Employees were expected to work 7 days a week, into the evenings (unpaid overtime) and received little to no award for their hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to re-evaluate their estimations for work to ensure that teams have the time they need to complete the work. Managers need to connect with their employees and build healthy relationships with them. Debating minutiae and looking for places to pass the blame is not the right approach.
