Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Flexible work schedule, middle management has open door policy.

Cons

Lay offs took place at least twice a year, there is constant reorganization and merging of acquired talent/products. The yearly review process is cumbersome and does not allow for performance changes that are related to medical leaves of absence.

Advice to Management

Products need to have an end of life. Recruiters need to be move involved with the hiring of talent or the rehiring of talent that was laid off due to reorganization or such.
