Our Values

What is our proposition to you?

As you’ve already figured out, Symantec isn’t looking for just anyone to join our team. You need to believe in our mission to keep the world’s information safe, and you must have a passion for growing, learning and playing an active role in redefining the future of cyber security.

In return for your commitment, we will make sure the work you do challenges you in a positive way. We will offer you opportunities to build your knowledge and achieve your career goals. You will collaborate with smart people but have the autonomy you need to feel confident and respected. But most of all, you will get the chance to make a difference.

Symantec is the world leader in cyber security. We will continue to deliver game-changing innovation and build upon our unrivalled legacy. It’s a value proposition that no other company can deliver.

If you believe in what we do and are ready for the career experience of a lifetime, we want to hear from you.

Hear What Employees Have To Say


Every job is a two-way commitment. At Symantec, that means we repay your effort and success with a Total Rewards program that will motivate and inspire you to reach your potential.


We keep it simple at Symantec: When you do outstanding work, you earn more money—whether it’s through an incentive program that directly rewards top performers or a special WOW recognition program where above and beyond performance is celebrated.


Keeping the world’s information safe is exciting and satisfying, but so is life outside the office. Our comprehensive health and wellbeing offerings are designed to take care of you and your family 24/7—with medical, dental and vision insurance, wellness incentives, time off, voluntary benefits, and a flexible workplace environment.


Your long-term financial health is about more than a regular paycheck, so we offer a variety of programs to help you build your financial security throughout your career and into retirement. Depending on where you work, this includes Employee Stock Purchase programs (ESPP), retirement savings programs, equity grants, and long-term income protection programs such as disability and life insurance.


People get more done in a fun and collaborative workplace—we get it! For example, our Mountain View HQ campus offers employees comfortable facilities that meet the WELL Building Standard, a state-of-the-art gym, a laundry service, and even a fun place to hang out and relax called Union 82.

Diversity is more than just

Race, Gender and Ethnicity

We believe diversity is more than just race, gender and ethnicity: it’s about creating an environment where every culture, language, age, sexual orientation, disability, background, and experience is celebrated.

Symantec is actively working to increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities employees in the United States by 15 percent by 2020, using FY14 as a baseline year, between 2014 and 2020. To accomplish this goal, we are working together to:

Expand bias training for recruiters, HR business partners, and people managers

Design inclusive and objective hiring processes

Expand and measure outreach efforts in communities of underrepresented groups

Track diversity metrics on a more consistent basis and share progress with company leaders


Our Employee Resource Groups (ERG’S) play an important role in delivering on our diversity and inclusion strategies. ERGs help to build cultural awareness and a sense of belonging for our employees. They serve as ambassadors in the broader community, volunteering and advocating on issues. ERGs help to foster innovation and support the growth of Symantec's business.
