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

    Pros

    Great benefits/salary package, flexible work schedule/telecommuting, renewed emphasis on employee development & customer focus

    Cons

    The company overall is struggling with it's re-invention, firing 2 CEOs in 3 years. Focus on strategy and execution is emphasized, but delivery lags.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain stability to show confidence to customers, employees and shareholders.

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

    Pros

    Smart coworkers, great new upper management. Low turnover means the culture is tightly woven, yet very accepting and supportive to new hires. Great work-life balance. Management is well trained, knows how to stay out of the way of everyone doing the work.

    Cons

    Salary raises have been meager for several years, promotions are very rare. New management has taken a long time to recover from a massive reorganization last year. The company is being reborn from the inside out, which is both frustrating and exciting.
