    Pros

    Symantec has some of the greatest people to work with. The company is currently going through a reorganization but the vision and leadership is promising. This is giving the employee population at lot of hope and renewed vitality.

    Cons

    The reorganization process is pretty painful, as I'm sure it is when companies go through this kind of change. There is still a lot of work to be done. Silo'd orgs that don't speak to each other - where you wonder "what do they do again?"

    Advice to Management

    Continue the transparency. It is a definitely a welcome change.
