IT Director (Former Employee) –  North Sydney, NSW24 September 2014
Symantec in the past 3 years have been going through a lot of changes. The focus shifted lately to be very USA centric, making a lot of good peoples jobs redundant within remote locations.

In general it is a good place to work as long as you work for them.
Pros
training and benefits
Cons
long hours

Great perks!
Territory Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Brisbane, Queensland Australia4 March 2013
A typical day at work would consist of checking emails, followed by plans for the day. General agenda items would include attending organised meetings, calling customers to arrange new meetings, quoting, follow up, and then checking emails at a close.
The hardest part of the job is securing new meetings with new clients as they can be evasive in agreeing to a first up meeting.
Management is tough but fair, the new VP is very employee and customer focused which is a nice change to his predecessor.
The remote office that I work in has a great vibe where all segments of the business interact freely and get along well.
The most enjoyable part of the job would be attending events with clients as it's a great way to open the door for new opportunity.
Pros
gym subsidy, private healthcare, car allowance
Cons
slow to change
