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

    Pros

    Good pay and better than average benefits

    Cons

    Company was purchased by Carlyle Group, and since then it's been a steady decline.
    Upper Management doesn't know how to capitalize with products.
    Management is more concerned with short term than long term success
    Upper Management is constantly changing over the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Have people actually invested in the long term future making decisions there.

    Pros

    Good products & great people

    Cons

    Company has lost its mojo. We used to have people dying to work here. Too much churn at the leadership level. VC ownership means that missing a number in a quarter means new leadership. Result = lack of culture

    Advice to Management

    Not much management can do... the VC is controlling the purse strings.

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

    Pros

    - Great people to work with in local office
    - Company does give back to the community
    - Flexibility to work remotely

    Cons

    - Constant turnover with leadership team
    - Cost cutting has reduced workforce so employees are expected to do more with less
    - Employees invest time and effort into the company but the company does not invest in its employees. Example, minimal raises (3% or less on average), no expanded training beyond new hire training, bonus structure poor, not many opportunities for career advancement)
    - Cost cuts prevent leadership team to make decisions to invest in teams or businesses that could increase revenue to the company
    - Benefit cost increases so more out of pocket expense or deduction from salary
    - Constant unstable environment due to the amount of layoffs that occur
    - Culture is much different now than previous years. There is poor communication from executives, no feeling of an overall "team" environment, employees feel like just a $ not as if company values them
    - Leadership not willing to invest in making improved process or efficiencies unless it is just cutting headcount. Employees spend a lot of time trying to fix internal issues rather than doing their assigned job

    I worked at Veritas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health insurance is very competitive compared to other companies. There is a 401K match but the amount covered is low.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is terrible. The situation is very unstable through various round of layoffs. They're also close down the Culver City site even though senior management was telling the employees it will remain open.

    Pros

    Work colleagues very friendly, benefits excellent, company is ethical and encourages the support of local charities in all office locations. Encourages feedback, managers supportive (but very busy). Office environments being constantly improved to be inclusive and acknowledge people's personal lives and requirements, as well as the business side.

    Cons

    Still getting structure finalized after separation, so lots of changes and positions not always clear which can cause instability.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is improving and it's great that management are taking more onboard and implementing it, let's continue!
