    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    McAfee is now part of Intel, what makes the experience much more interesting in terms of career development and also resume purposes

    Cons

    Depending on which department you work on, sometimes carrer development within the company is not that easy as they claim to be.
    Salaries are lower than similar companies, and promotions won't give you much more earnings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should provide more support to their team members in terms of training to help them grow as professionals.

    I have been working at McAfee full-time

    Pros

    Very good benefit program, will be moving to Intel entirely in a few months with the integration. They give stock to all employees which is a benefit. Great cause in making the world a safer place. Good flexibility, but a lot of work to do.

    Cons

    Ton of work, always running leaner than we should be. Always facing budget cuts and RIFs happen far too often. Distrust of management ranks in certain functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick to it. Mike Decesare had us headed in the right direction as evidence by getting back to growth, but with new leader on board he feels a need to course correct. Cut back on the RIFs, it is horrible for employee morale.

    I have been working at McAfee as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It has small company environment, but has benefit of big comapny. Work hour is felxible and you can keep work-life balance easily.

    Cons

    Processes and mangements are in middle of change. Work is hard and constant debuging due to the character of security industry. Idaho falls is quite small city with nothing really fun to do around.

    Great family. Great company. Has a vision for the future of security. The Intel purchase has lead to a more strategic vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus efforts on helping McAfee, and other purchased corporations, to become Intel.
