    I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technical information. Some call this corporation "symantec university" because of all of the learning opportunities. I like the culture a lot. A wide variety of personality types.

    Cons

    Reduction in force is something you have to worry about no matter where you work. though. If you do well enough to stand out, they will go out of their way to try and keep you.

    Advice to Management

    Lower level management has a limited ability to effect change. Only people high up in the structure can make any real difference in most cases. The problem with any large corporation is being disconnected from the situation they are making the decision about. People doing the jobs need to be a real part of the decision making process. Mangers need to be left alone to manage the people the work with everyday. Trust but verify.
