    I worked at McAfee as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance as an intern.
    Smaller office environment was great.
    Free drinks and breakfast each Friday.

    Cons

    The internship started off slow, so that was a bit difficult to deal with, but it picked up and got fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More engaging training for interns.

    I worked at McAfee

    Pros

    * Leaders are distributed over Geo's; so regular face-time is possible leading to strong personal relationships\\
    * Industry standard and better pay
    * Program Management Organisation is powerful and it's value well understood

    Cons

    * Personal growth may not happen automatically, one needs to perform well and then follow it up
    * Aquired by Intel. So repercussions are still coming to light

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * The impact that a company like McAfee has on the world, and the lives of millions does not come across strongly. Motivation and performance will improve automatically, if this message is re-inforved periodically, and visible at all times

    I worked at McAfee full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is always something new due to growth, M&A or market. Company invests in its people with training, mentorship and proper feedback. Compensation was excellent with really good benefits.

    Cons

    The M&A schedules can be ridiculously short and the under/over hiring plan flexes every year. Unfortunately due to M&A positions are eliminated every year. If your on the technology side the resources are mainly in India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better hiring plan by Sales and Engineering would help with the annual RIF due to bad planning.
