    I worked at LifeLock full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and pay. Room for growth, but only if you have the right manager. Flexible work/life balance.

    Cons

    Managers and the "Good Ol' Boys" club, make it hard to get bonuses. There's no consistency among any of them. They also have no issues giving one person all of the workload.

    Advice to Management

    VP and up, you need to make things consistent with all managers and ensure they have the willpower to hold themselves to it.

    Pros

    The Founder era when doing the right thing was valued & hard work was rewarded was great, later you got paid because you were a FOH. Member services agents work incredibly hard & used to get recognized for it.

    Cons

    When the place became overrun by greedy Californians who filled their pockets and talked about culture but contributed to the demise of a once great company..such a shame. Repeating great quotes like "culture eats strategy for lunch" doesn't hide the fact that mgmt doesn't walk the talk.

    Advice to Management

    Note to Symantec: do the right thing, reward the employees working hard to keep LifeLock best in class, not the management that has their own agenda.

    Pros

    Beautiful newly remodeled location. Great team-building activities. Great benefits including a generous 401-K match.

    Cons

    Upper management was more concerned with metrics than providing one call resolution. Intimidation and threat of termination used instead of providing feedback and proper coaching. HR did not respond to multiple requests for assistance in the matter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the customer interaction at the focus instead of metrics. Treat employees as humans instead of just a number. Provide coaching and encouragement to employees instead of threats.

    Pros

    Pay is not bad.

    Cons

    I am not going to go into any specific details, but if you are in information security it would be in your best interest to NOT work for this company. Spent just over a year here and it was a big mistake.

    Cons

    Not going to go into any details but if your in Information Security do not work here. Sr management really has no clear plan on what they are doing and lack experience.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people you hire since you hired them for their expertise.

    Pros

    The team I worked with were very good people. They did their best to be positive in a bad situation.

    Cons

    Management have their heads on a proverbial chopping block due to a corporate buy out, and are pushing numbers so hard that people that have worked at this company for years are being pushed out, purposefully. I understand that production needs to go up in a lot of areas, but when no effort is being made to streamline processes, or truly fix the utter lack of training here, it shows the current employees that they are going to be held accountable for things their managers do not want to take responsibility for. Many managers, who do not even possess any kind of degree, schooling for management, or actual job qualifications, that would make the assumption that they have knowledge that the floor personnel don't, make sweeping generalizations about the quality of work on the floor. Leaders LEAD, managers bark orders. We have managers, and are completely devoid of leadership.

    They have moved away from customer service to sales based number reporting. Which, given the takeover by Symantec, makes sense that the corporate heads want numbers. However, when you hear managers using phrases like "cutting the fat" regarding PEOPLE that work for them, you start to feel like you don't matter at all.

    The budgets have been slashed, the bonus structure has been practically obliterated, flex schedules have been taken away and our every two weeks pay has been removed and replaced with twice a month. And they find new reasons to blame employees. Not one manager has given credence since the beginning of the year to how much numbers overall have risen or how much more work everyone here (that is left) is doing. No, they just want more. Let me tell you something, they don't pay us enough for MORE. Especially when a lot of the production issues are systemic within the company.

    This went from being one of the best places to work in the valley; a company that prided itself on support of it's employees and the culture of TEAMWORK. To individually based number reporting and a complete lack of work/life balance.

    HR is absolutely abhorrent, they truly epitomize Steve Job's quote, "I have never met an HR person with more than a mediocre personality." They are here to file paperwork, do not consider them for help with anything. Ever. They sit up in their corner, but don't do anything to make this place better. Human resources lost its human face with those women. Truly.

    This is just another call center now. If that isn't your thing, don't come here. We are no longer Lifelock employees. We are numbers next to a spreadsheet on some Symantec big wig's desk.

    And don't get it twisted. We have ALL attempted to make positive changes for our teams and make it so this place didn't lose every bit of what it once was. We lost. And the fall out is going to be a high turnover in coming years and very little accountability by the management staff.

    Putting in your resignation is basically you telling them you are ready to leave. They do not honor your commitment to two weeks but walk you out the door shamefully.

    Career opportunities are at a stand still. Symantec wants to cut its spending and have instituted that no new employees are to on board and therefore new opportunities are gone. There will not be upward mobility for some time.

    Advice to Management

    Put your people first. Take responsibility for systemic issues and stop punishing people for doing hard work. Leaders lead by example. Managers bark orders and blame employees for failures. We have managers here. We do not have leaders.

    Pros

    Unique marketing proposition, owns a quant based company the light of the offering, says and talks about some of the right things.

    Cons

    A very zealous new CEO, driven by tactics and a company that lacks long term vision. Cycles though employees as if it were speed dating.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking in the now, focus on employees and develop a real solution that's defensible.

    I have been working at LifeLock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Company Culture is AMAZING!
    -Super fun place to work
    -Great career advancement opportunities
    -Free lunch (though that will end soon with the merge)
    -Close to public transit
    -Educational reimbursement $5k annually towards your ongoing education
    -Work from home privlidges

    Cons

    Since the merge with software security giant Symantec, there is a ton of anxiety felt in the office. We will be merging offices in a few weeks (beginning part of May 2017) and lay-off letters haven't even gone out. There is fear among colleagues that we will be moved to their offices and then people will be laid off shortly there after.....not the best way to handle it in my opinion.
    I also am witness to A LOT of people throwing others under the bus when problems arise, placing blame, and overall underhandedness. The closer we get to the layoffs the more I see people act out and do things one wouldn't expect in a professional environment.....it sad
    Also, most are on the corporate bonus plan which only paid out approx 50% or less than what it was supposed to be. What a let-down.

    Thanks for the feedback. We understand the anxiety! If it helps, did you know that the new office has great amenities, like a gym, that our old office didn’t have? And with any acquisition, there... More
