Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA (US)

I worked at Symantec full-time for less than a year

Pros

Ethics driven Company
As an intern, I didn't find any politics, everybody was nice and helpful
Good pay and nice cafe

Cons

Not everybody is smart (some people are just going along because they have been at the company long)
Older workforce in general makes it less attractive for new interns and new hires

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more young people, and make changes fast (older workforce although good, is still resistant to change...just my impression though)

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Utrecht (Netherlands)

    I worked at Symantec full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great potential in terms of products and people, present in the right area's of the market (mobility, security, cloud).

    Cons

    Senior Management is in panic continuously, share-price too low, not really capitalizing on the potential of the people. Afraid to fully rely on channel. Cumbersome internal processes. No trust internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the true potential is in the people and respect them. The right people are there. It is a matter of polishing those diamonds, not throwing them away.

    Doesn't Recommend
