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

    Pros

    Worklife, Salary, RSU, salary structure, facilities, bus service

    Cons

    Some legacy products and legacy technologies, silo mode working, team work is missing

    Advice to Management

    Try to improvise the less profit making units instead of getting rid of them.
    Promote internal transfers. HR prefer calling people from outside for their bonus instead of internal employees who are interested.

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

    Pros

    1. good work life balance
    2. great products
    3. free transport, excellent perks
    4. Engineering teams are top notch, high level tech talent.
    5. decent salary, decent hike
    6. the new management in US is set of hard working people. they are interested in taking company to next level and do not shy away from making some tough calls. ( selling/ acquiring new business)

    Cons

    1. Dull office environment overall in India.
    2. Symantec is a cumulative of many organization, so every team is a separate organization and people despise each other.
    3. Campus recruitment is appalling, very bad.
    4. There are managers in IT who cant speak English.
    5. Decade old people bully everyone, all they care is their own place, they are so shameless that despite getting no hikes, they are holding on their places
    6. Company doesn't believe in upgrading talent, no training , there is virtually no existent eco-system to develop fresh out of college talent. I feel that some people have intentionally created a void so that their favorites will keep a place no matter what.

    Advice to Management

    1. bring in fresh young talent especially at senior level from top software product companies in india.
    2. believe is scaling talent across all level. not just directors and VPs
    3. take a hard close look at decade old folks, and see if they are a liability or an Asset.
    4. you are doing a great job in scaling business and competing in a really really tough market space.
    5. treat India as a top notch office, don't treat them as offshore delivery center.
