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

    Pros

    Large company with good work-life balance, competitive compensation and benefits. Good opportunities for career advancement, both as individual contributor or in management.

    Cons

    Company is not experiencing growth equal to its market segments. There is lack of focus on executive level, however hopefully it's changing now under new CEO. Hard to get things done if you are in a senior role. Internal inovation is severally lacking and mostly achieved by acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People who is not meant to be a people manager should not be promoted to such positions.
