    I worked at Symantec full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is OK. Health benefits are good. The work life balance is not bad, you work mostly 40 hours, but it depends on the position. Sometimes have to do deployments at crazy hours due to a global workforce.

    Cons

    If you are a talented developer/engineer, you will waste your time working for Symantec. You won't do anything besides fixing bugs and reading articles on the internet when you are not busy. Most of the work is outsourced to India and the quality is very poor.

    The work environment is government like. There is a certain group of people who holds secret meetings and decides about everything. You will never be invited to these meetings unless you are one of the boys or girls of the special club. The HR department is pretty pathetic or non existent.

    The senior management is out of touch with reality. They have their own special club. They are going through this fake reorganization process to push out of the company their own enemies. Senior management doesn't really have a vision or do anything besides cashing a fat paycheck and bonus.

    Advice to Management

    I doubt they would care. Most of them are not interested in doing anything besides protecting their own turf.
