Manager (Former Employee), Dublin – November 5, 2013
Pros: excellent - healthcare and pension benefits
Cons: long hours
Flexible working hours. I learnt desktop publishing, project, program and development management and finally how to be a leader - all on a global scale. Co workers excellent (engaged) and passionate about the work. Meeting cost reduction and KPI set by VP's is changeling but that is what I loved about the job. Most enjoyable part of the job was the – more... level of respect and professionalism in the team, department and company wide. – less
Symantec is a strong company and one of the top in overall software development. Symantec had grown fast inorganically for several years and is trying to re-establish an identify as a leader in securing the world's information. As a result several acquisitions that it had made no longer fit with the new problems they intend to solve which has put several – more... employees and business groups at risk. The new CEO is working to instill a new vision for the company which is still a work in progress. Recently they've lost a lot of top level management which begs to question if they were really bought in with the new CEO. Ultimately Symantec is consolidating into more strategic locations with a lot of work appearing to move off-shore from an Engineering perspective. They provide strong benefits and competitive pay. – less
The work is engaging and nearly everyone you work with is brilliant. Lots of effort put into personal development and growth. People really care about you, and the atmosphere is more collaborative than competitive.
