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

    Pros

    Large company and will be here for a long time. Good benefits. Depending on the group you are with, work/life balance can be good - but that is not constant across all teams. Good place for entry level people to get a start and learn.

    Cons

    Large company lacking focus and direction, or I should say focus and direction seem to change each year. Upper management's main focus is just to cut costs of developing and supporting software without any concerns of impact to quality and customers. They also do a lot of employee surveys on what needs to be fixed, then upper management puts out a lot of "we hear you", but then do nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on building quality products and customer satisfaction will improve.
