I have been working at Symantec as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Friendly people, great onsite perks (Mountain View - HQ), structured internship and rotational programs, great brand name, ability to work in a number of different business areas.

Cons

Pay was slightly lower than many competitors, organization was lacking in some areas (may be due to the reorg currently ongoing)

Advice to Management

Even though management expressed that their pay rates were equal to competitors, I would suggest bumping it more to keep top talent

    Pros

    Lots of internal mobility for talented people; such a big company that there are lots of good people to work with and projects to work on

    Cons

    Company strategy doesn't impress; future doesn't look good; highly political environment from CEO to managers on the floor; most internal projects fail (or are re-branded as pilots when it becomes apparent they'll fail)
