      Pros

      Product and Service are incredible. People at the delivery level are many of the best and are a joy to work with.

      Cons

      Upper management changes. Leadership coming in getting their golden parachute and leaving. Revolving door that disrupts work flow.

      Directionless and don't care about the individual

      Nov 9, 2019 - Technical Account Manager in Draper, UT
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Pay can be decent but it depends on the day. This fluctuates for the same job quite a bit. Since the acquisition of Blue Coat they now have the best comprehensive vision of cyber security (on prem and cloud) with the best secure web gateway in the business (ProxySG). Product portfolio includes SWG, Virus and malware scanning, central management, SSL visibility, sandboxing, web isolation, content filtering and cloud offerings such as web security services and CASB.

      Cons

      Symantec struggles with direction and execution of their vision. Direction from the top down continually changes. It seems they just can't figure out what to do next and jump from program to program experiencing one failure after another. They are very numbers and money oriented and the customer experience suffers because of it. Upper management makes uninformed decisions behind closed doors and then pushes poorly thought out programs down the line for execution and are not open to others opinions no matter how experienced those opinions might be. Huge number of layoffs in the past few years that creates a culture of insecurity. It's been quite a roller coaster ride. Frustrating and you are left knowing that Symantec doesn't really care about the individual. The workforce is becoming somewhat watered down, brain drain due to highly skilled and experienced engineers leaving a company. Engineers are commonly overwhelmed and work/life balance is a real challenge at Symantec.

      Pros

      Enjoyed working with smart and competent coworkers

      Cons

      The team I was assigned to lost executive backing after upper management changes. This removed all direction and purpose from the team. RSUs are golden handcuffs. Can make it harder to leave
