    Honestly look the other way. Symantec just laid off 8% of the work force to make margins look good. They trying to push teams to "devops" with little or no training. It's a mess right now. With RSUs, bonus and salary my TC is arround 150k as principal in US.

      That's too low in US for principal level if it's Mountain View. How are you surviving?

    Please don't go to Symantec. The new CEO and CFO are in cost cutting mode plus we have hiring feezes in several areas. The chances of getting a good offer from Symantec or slim to none.
