Flexible place to work
Fraud & Risk Analyst (Former Employee), DublinJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: work from home
Cons: work on weekends
Fast pace but repetitive role. You need to constantly check que Qs and also perform a number of other tasks at the same time.

Great amount of freedom but management does not provide clear guidelines and you need to improvise as you go along.

Overall good experience
Principal Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee), Mountain View, CADecember 17, 2013
Pros: gym, internal training, and the people.
Cons: not too many perks. charged for gym, and restricted working from home.
There was fair training there, but great support from co-workers. Several organizational, and management changes while there. Was often hard to determine the companies direction, but the new leadership has things improving. Great staff, and people working at SYMC which made it a good company to work for.

Great Company but....
Senior Principal Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Roseville, MNDecember 13, 2013
Great Company but struggling to keep/find it's identity in the ever changing world of IT. Management disconnected from customers in GEOs. Lost in a fight with so many competitors over so many products in the portfolio. Steps on a dollar to save a dime.
