Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Opportunities to contribute abound
Mission of internet security/availability/storage
Still some great people here around the world

New leadership is passing out Kool-Aid and all must drink it.
Long, hard hours with changing direction at leadership whims
bit command and control - highly political
