Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary, benefits, great place if you love politics. Management culture got better lately, there's a sense of pride for those who've been here a long time.

Cons

Too much politics, not enough career development discussions, constant reorgs and cuts (only to hire more people later...) We are in the third CEO in less than three years.

Advice to Management

Focus, make a decision and move. Stop being paralyzed. Stop living in PowerPoint land...

    I have been working at Symantec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (401k matching up to 6%, gym reimbursement)
    Stability in job as long as you're not part of middle management

    Cons

    Culturally, each business unit acts as a separate entity.
    No cohesion
    Lack of fundamental job understanding from Sr. Management
    Lack of growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your strategy and think about growing the business but not on a shoe string budget
