Not a place I can endorse for marketing professionals
Global Channel Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CANovember 11, 2017
A typical day at work, once you navigate the brutal lower Peninsula traffic, is one where you spend lots of time convincing colleagues to finish and execute global initiatives instead of resisting. A lot of this comes from a marketing leadership team that has put lots of senior people in regional roles who are not held accountable for initiatives decided by headquarters marketing. The imbalance between regions and autonomy in those regions make the any global initiative or rollout extremely challenging to complete or keep moving.
The constant changes at the top of sales, marketing and product development are driven by uncertainty over quarterly performance and what the private investor that owns Veritas will do in the next year - spin off/break up, or IPO. An executive is snagged from other tech company and that executive follows the typical Silicon Valley model of rolling up a bus of their colleagues to take over key functions and improve the trajectory of the company. The challenge is this company is a hot mess, it just came out from under Symantec and those that know the history and how to get things done often get overlooked or leave.

Rough
Senior Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAOctober 3, 2017
This isn't a corporation you want to work for while being controlled by a bunch of executives that are well past their retirement age. Wait until new minds and ideas have been introduced unless you're ready to go to market with products that are 10 years old.

There is a lack of leadership and direction within this company. Senior Management have no idea how to manage or direct the flow of work.
IT Project Manager - Global Security Office (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAApril 23, 2017
With the layoff of 30% of the sales force, the elimination of PMO, and serious management issues covered up by HR, caused for many of the permanent employees to leave. There are many great people who work for Veritas, but the managers manage up and care little for their own staff.

Like a large startup company
Senior Manager, Distribution Marketing (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAApril 10, 2017
Veritas has excellent people and the products are great and getting better. However, the company has a lot of missing processes and infrastructure and there is a lot short term pressure. If you love startups but want to work in a larger company, this may be a great fit for you.
Pros
Great people, great products
Cons
Instability and lots of pressure

Inside Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Heathrow, FLMarch 29, 2017

Pros
great people
Cons
No job security

National Channel Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 5, 2016
I believe that Veritas can once again become a great company, but there needs to be some severe market awareness and product differentiation changes in order for that to happen.

Great company, except they closed Oregon offices
Sr. Sales Operations (Former Employee) –  Eugene, ORJune 8, 2016
Symantec (and Veritas) was a great employer. Good culture, great managers and a thoroughly enjoyable place to work.

Current executive leadership is very short-sighted and focused only on appeasing Wall Street in the immediate quarter. So much so, that they operationally split the company into two companies. Within a year, Veritas has closed down all Oregon operations and there are strong rumors that Symantec will do the same. It's basically the fall of Rome. Great place to work once upon a time. But for Oregonians? Good luck with that.
