    I have been working at Symantec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get latest version of whatever tool or platform your team is working on.
    It's very rare that someone ever need to spend more than 9 hrs ever so enough time for your personal life and things.
    In terms of pay, they are as par with any other startups or big product MNCs.
    The brand value gives you an edge whenever you look out for other work place.
    30+ leaves in an year for everyone.

    Cons

    Being a big company, sometime a little politics can be seen affecting your growth in comparison to your peer.
