    I worked at Symantec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best place I've worked, if you can live with unpredictable nature of the tech industry. Great benefits, great working environment, excellent diversity, volunteerism and matching funds. I learned a great deal and loved every moment.

    Cons

    Volatile nature of tech industry as a whole means shifting resource needs.

    I worked at Symantec full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great. Spacious Office. Good Salary. Some group activities. Opportunity to grow professional skills. Agile project planning. Nice and warm colleague communications. Free parking space to work. Convenient restaurant in the basement.

    Cons

    I had been managed by 15 to 17 managers in 10 years and I had been in many different projects. Some manager may not know my strength well because they had managed me short period of time. This situation had made me less advantageous in performance review a few times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees in the same team and make less job transfer.
