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

    Pros

    Symantec is undergoing large changes, and has established terrific values to ensure employee engagement. There is still much to be done, but I am optimistic as we have made a lot of progress so far.

    Cons

    Lot of changes in upper management, which needs to stabilize.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage employees as you drive the company forward. Continue encouraging risk taking, and out of box thinking at all levels.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Symantec as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company still has great customer retention because of their great products

    Cons

    Obviously they needed a new CEO with some serious planning and management vision. The culture here has been taken over by India culture. If your not form India, you have very little chance of getting anywhere. They take care of themselves!

    Advice to Management

    Need to come back to an American based culture and management styles.
