Topics regarding layoffs at Symantec Corp.
I'm sure it was about one year ago to the day when the official announcement was made that Broadcom would buy the enterprise security assets of Symantec. Little was known at the time as to what that would actually mean for thousands of employees... — read more
All we keep reading is layoffs ? As a former employee of Sym it pains to see what’s become of this company! Greed of investor activists, apathy of senior leadership, lack of direction....what you are seeing is the end result . It won’t be long... — read more
Symantec was a great Company. broadcom destroyed everything. broadcom is not a company, they work more like an investment found. no ethics, no mission, only profit.

More to come. Getting thrown out in the cold with the virus.

Broadcom replied the Union and announced that the list was reduced to 12 people. No names, no new details, but you can be sure they did that because people are leaving and they don't need to fire all them.
Symantec ( Broadcom) customers are furious with the level of technical support they are receiving. The goodwill SYM earned has been thrown into the trash can in a matter of few months. It’s all a mess ! Employees in technical support too are fed up... — read more
So, many of us still have NLOK stocks and the special 12$ dividend is coming. Should we wait or sell before (to avoid the dividend tax) ? What about the McAfee rumour ?
No news or gossips? What has happened?
Bright new future ahead!! Looking forward for great stuff!!
Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas 🤶 peace of mind in Draper 😇
It's a win win win win situation.
What’s the latest update folks ! Any updates to share with the rest of what’s happening?
Heard many not accepting the offer ? What’s the latest update
If you decline the offer will you get Severance- what is the HR policy on this
The final headcounts have been complete for a few weeks now and all offers have gone out. For most of us the deadline to return offers is this week or next week. If you didnt recieve one I would be looking for a new job over xmas :(
They say one thing and do another ! I’m done with this BS
Does anyone have details about the sh–ty show in Ireland? We heard that everybody declined to Broadcom's offer and preferred to leave. Is there any details?
23 in total. Managers officially don't know exact names ;-) Try to ask your for them your beloved win, win, win manager. He 'maybe' knows :-D
Any region got their offer letters? FYI colleagues in TUPE will receive delayed offers.
Curious to know because it was expected this week !
I need to say that it was worth waiting. No rise here, but amount of stock, at least for senior position is good enough to cover weekends. If we will be still paid for weekends it would be great.
Well if it takes even longer to be able to process any order no one will have a job left.
Why are you attending this stupid, useless meetings? Enjoy this period where you can do whatever you want and find a new job! I won't be surprised if you find a new place better than this pigpan!
Dear Santa Hock, for Christmas this year I want to be fired and get that sweet 6 months salary compensation. Best regards, Your employee.
RSU, babe! Broadcom has to distribute the RSU until 15/12. So, until 15/12 Strategic people will receive the contract and RSU and for Enterprise Santa Hock will give us a temporary contract to work more 6 months in this mess.
