I worked at Symantec full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good salary, good people locally.

Cons

Product teams spread across globe- led to communication, timing & management issues.
Virtual HR for remote offices with 200+ people not a good idea.
Not enough innovation, just integration, integration, integration of acquired technology.

Advice to Management

Lead by example, not by powerpoint.

    Pros

    It's an important industry, with world-wide impact. This makes for meaningful and satisfying work if you embrace the vision of the company. I'm impressed with the top-down communication as the new CEO--Steve Bennett--makes sweeping changes to revitalize this company.. as he did with his previous companies. There is a great deal of excitement in the company about its future.

    Cons

    As a large company, you may have to work hard to remain engaged with the larger vision.

    Pros

    Great products and new focus on the customer for entire company. This used to only be practiced in the Consumer Business unit and will benefit the company immensely. Combining Dev efforts will make for best practice sharing between business units.

    Cons

    Staying focused thru this strategic shift will be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the contributors.
