"I worked for Symantec for about 6 years. I always loved working there. It was unfortunate that several employees were laid off, including myself. But I honestly believe everything happens for a reason and I guess it was my time to move on from Symantec and to look forward to better job opportunities."

Marketing Manager

"I love working for Symantec. Since Steve Bennett joined the organization as CEO, employees are treated fairly and are rewarded for dedication and productivity. The benefits are fantastic, and the company seems to hire good people as a general rule. One caveat: The new employee onboarding experience is awful, however, and I hope that they improve that process in the near future."
