    I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Symantec is undergoing massive and necessary transformation. Symantec has lacked vision since John Thompson left. Steve Bennett has wasted no time in not only crafting a vision, but following through. Bennett has stopped the ongoing erosion of purpose at Symantec.

    Cons

    Symantec has 1-2 years of significant growing pains ahead as the changes have been so deep and broad. There has been a very deep talent and expertise migration away from Symantec. While the organization is "leaner and meaner," it will take an extended, painful period to try to rebuild some of the business relationships and expertise.
