    I worked at NortonLifeLock

    Pros

    Symantec offers outstanding pay and benefits

    Cons

    Revolving door of layoffs. Senior management gets weird ideas and just runs with it. Company is pretty well run by Bluecoat - who Symantec "acquired".

    Advice to Management

    Ditch Greg. Bluecoat was an absolute disaster waiting to happen.

    I have been working at NortonLifeLock full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    With a company this large, stability is not a question. I like the immediate group I work with, but that is variable based on your team.

    Cons

    Senior management has no concern at all for employee satisfaction. They know they can replace you if you leave, and that's how they treat you. Raises this year were an insult, if you got one at all. People are leaving with no effort to entice them to stay, and they are not being replaced.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have advice for my manager, since I don't have one. He left the company months ago and hasn't been replaced. Maybe that would be a place for upper management to start making changes - hire some people.

    Pros

    Deep pockets and strong protfolio

    Cons

    shifting and absent values poor senior management and communications RIFs several times a year along with poisonous stress about your job regardless of your performance

    Advice to Management

    pick a direction and go that way. Communicate it clearly and stop firing people who are doing good work for you, because your C-level decision of the week mandates a change

    I worked at NortonLifeLock full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People - I can't say enough about the non-management personnel at Symantec. Everyone worked hard to deliver within the many constraints and few expansions during my time I was employed there. I felt it was a total team effort with no egos overtaking the goal of working for delivery for customers. Management - There are some really good managers and leaders at Symantec. Some that truly care about delivering a... product, contributing to the bottom line and motivating their personnel to expand beyond their given role and help cultivate them to become leaders in the company. Compensation - The pay was exceptional as were the benefits. Compensation was more than fair and the potential to receive company stock enhances the overall earning potential with the company.

    Cons

    Delays in innovation or lack of innovation - It was really hard to have request changes or implement new changes when enhancements were fully vetted or requests for innovation couldn't happen because the infrastructure doesn't support it or managers didn't see the value in it. Management - Managers who openly play favorites, focus only on the one or two people that can make them look good and take little to no time... to mentor/praise the rest of their teams unless their hands are forced by senior management. Nepotism seems to be the big open secret that no one ever wants to address but secretly question given some of the promotions that took place. Workload - Never a chance to "turn if off" when I left the office. 50-60 hour work weeks were common as were weekend issues with unsatisfactory customers.

    Advice to Management

    Time for some changes in product expansion, service delivery and sales. A lot of complacency in those areas and the wheels just keep spinning in the mud.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great location, awesome technology challenges.

    Cons

    Senior management was too afraid to make tough market decisions - content with mediocre performance. Slow death via cutbacks.

    Advice to Management

    Realize you cannot save your way to prosperity. Stop saving pennies and losing dollars!

    Pros

    - opportunity to find balance and success - some of the most amazing people I've met - great food

    Cons

    - management inconsistencies; smiling isn't talent - senior management does not fulfill their promises - OLD tech internally

    Advice to Management

    None. It will function as it will. You adhere to numbers as if it were your job. Oh wait. You try.

    I worked at NortonLifeLock full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good product and growth potential if opportunities are successfully attained.

    Cons

    Lots of recent change to include 3 CEO's in 3 years, selling of Veritas and org restructures at many levels causing major turnover of Executive, Senior Management, and employees. Challenging times of uncertainty for many.

    Advice to Management

    Time to show employees the value of some level of stability while aiming for the strong business market gains. Find the balance.

    I worked at NortonLifeLock full-time

    Pros

    Good salary and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Very chaotic environment with red tapism. If you keep your boss happy, you get to stay in your place. Very political and lack of collaboration within teams; Overall environment seems a bit hostile and toxic. Lack of support from senior management. Company is like a sinking ship. 97% of total revenues coming from product line which has been declining with not much scope to grow in new area. Management lacks... vision and out of ideas. With so much completion in crowded security business, other than brand name, company has not much to offer to customers.

    Advice to Management

    With so much money you guys make, you need to come with some fresh ideas to grow or create new market. Norton on windows is not going to keep paying your fat checks for very long time.

    Pros

    In the right group you may find a supportive environment to tackle the challenges of never-ending restructuring, lay-offs and poorly skilled people managers

    Cons

    This is a company looking to find itself after years and ongoing senior management changes, demotions, downsizing, and frustrations.

    Advice to Management

    For a short stint you may find this company a useful experience. There is no pipeline of talent development, however.
