Featured Review

Former Freelancer - Sales Engineer

I worked at Cisco Systems

Pros

Premium brand recognition Lots of products and services Talent pool is very good Great after sales support

Cons

Product diversity is great but there is a tendency to have major issues with software when stretched. Cloud services have good branding but suffer from capacity issues. Can be easily disrupted for... example Zoom.

Advice to Management

Need to focus on customers instead of bottom line. Innovation should drive the business. Sales model in FY2020 was broken badly they need to get back to their roots.

Former Employee - Senior Systems Engineer

I worked at NortonLifeLock full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Teamwork, culture were fantastic. Products I worked with were market leading (or close to market leading).

Cons

Executive Management never quite stuck to a strategy, and I think the board over-valued the company. Too much politics in development, competing with each other for resources/attention/limelight.
