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

    Pros

    Great benefits - health, dental, vision, disability, etc. ESPP program with 15% discount on purchase. Money for education. Depending on your position, free iphone and plan coverage. Generous time off starting with 19 days per year and growing based on time with the company.

    Cons

    Hugely bureaucratic. Very difficult to get new programs implemented and bring in appropriate vendors as needed. Some poorly skilled executives who were promoted based on securing the right connections.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take your productive individual contributors for granted.
