    I have been working at Symantec full-time for more 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.

        I have been working at Symantec full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        One of the first things that will stand out is the Pay. The company has a culture to pay well. You will be amazed by how far they go to employ the right people. Depending on which projects you are in you will likely have a good work life balance. Some projects have a lot of late night calls due to the dependency in the US. It is a huge C++ shop so if you want to learn to code and learn the roots and be a good developer...

        Cons

        The second thing that will stand out is the no of old timers in the company. This does affect the company. Some are good but existing relationships comes in the way when you are trying to change something or try something new.
