    I worked at Symantec full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some very sharp people from all parts of the world. Had the chance to work on multiple cutting edge technologies like virtualization and Cloud.

    Cons

    RIFs seem to happen fairly frequently there. I was fortunate to make it through about 3 major ones and be transitioned into new teams as part of that doing. Unfortunately after 10 years didn't make the last one.

    Pros

    World class engineering team. Good mix of corporate vs. informal atmosphere. Great pay and benefits. Excellent facilities. Effective teams and staffing.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, especially during crunch time. However it's not really out of the ordinary for software. Probably between start-up hours and a typical corporate schedule.
