Lay offs on the Norton LifeLock side

Very political ...wish I wouldn’t have come here. Everything on Glass door is accurate . They brought people to Vegas, sales kick off and fired them a couple days later. Such a cruel thing to do. If you knew you were going to let people go why get... read more

More layoffs at Symantec

It's sad. I left the Norton Core team several months ago. It was not a healthy work environment and there were a lot of politics. I just heard today that pretty much the entire team was laid off. Wow! They are far from the only ones let go. I know of... read more


What is this now, year five or six of continuous reduction in staff? Morale is atrocious. We've lost some of our top talent, and forget about attracting fresh faces. Anyone who comes to Symantec today is settling, plain and simple. Only folks staying... read more

This is massive!

Around 1,000 people are being shown the door, that is much more than I expected. Luckily (and I know this is a matter of perspective,) it's global, so we might not see the worst of it. At least that's what I'm hoping. Anybody knows when we'll have... read more

Symantec fresh layoff started today

New layoffs started today, company has no growth. Bluecoat management totally screwed company. Audit is still not done, stock tanked 30% last quarter and another 12% after this quarter. Stock is back to 2006 level.

Creating a deficit in expertise

It never ceases to amaze me how Symantec is ready to lose it’s top talent or simply let go of their more experienced employees on their own. Talk about creating a serious deficit in expertise. Management doesn’t care about new employees' lack of... read more

This is not new

There is nothing new in Symantec deciding to let go of it’s best and brightest in favor of being “cost efficient”. Teams have been decimated for years now, causing added workloads for those that remained. Despite all of that, everybody who stayed is... read more

No sense of direction at Symantec

With layoffs, budget cuts and constant transitions occurring, no wonder we are at a loss of direction as a company. Management is constantly changing due to acquisitions and mergers. These changes have lead to a stressful environment with more work... read more

Been reading and hearing whispers about a massive round of layoffs coming to Symantec in December. I've tried to find some confirmation for it, but I haven't been successful. Any chance somebody here knows more about it? Whether it's true or just... read more

Symantec Reorganization- layoffs?

Symantec acquired Lifelock late last year. Merger was finalized in May. VP of support and services suddenly out without notice, replacement is Lifelock exec. New exec touring stateside facilities, advising management to move talented people up the... read more


The last chance Symantec had to do the right thing for its employees and customers was having a leader such as Steve Bennett. Steve had the vision of trying to improve all of the business. This did not mesh with the vision of the Board, led by MB... read more

Drinkathon in Vegas

Did you ever use any of the tools needed to do the job? One starts with an O. Complete and utter garbage that made it IMPOSSIBLE to do the most simple things in a normal amount of time. Well at least they yearly had 20 Mill or so to send all the... read more

This surprises me.

While I am no longer a Symantec employee, with Veritas Technologies now, my experience with Symantec has been very collaborative and positive. As an employee, my skills were appreciated and now as a contractor serving Symantec as a customer, I work... read more

Outsourcing Today

When jobs get outsourced, families and local business feel the hit. We already have more eager job hunters than there are jobs. Companies that outsource (not excluding Symantec) are being disloyal to their employees and to our country. Worse, they... read more

Too much negativity and anti-Symantec hype

Yes, its rough this year but at the same time many of us will get to keep our jobs and Symantec is still one of the best companies in the world. I worked here before the Veritas/Symantec split. There were and still are a lot of good people who work... read more

Marketing jobs on the chopping block

2014 will be tough - Marketing jobs are on the chopping block and let's see how this ends up. It's a pity that some people think that marketing is less important than other functions and that marketing can be run on its own.

Job cuts in Marketing/CMO's org today

The long and short of it: this Shitshow just keeps getting better. The CMO sent an email yesterday basically saying: "we can't just cut funds out from marketing programs, so instead we'll cut people out of the equation." Not sure who he thinks will... read more
