    I have been working at McAfee full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work. Focus is always on delivering products which are relevant to the customers.
    IDeas from employees get more than fair review. Employees get to enhance their skills by working on projects of thier interest and are also paired up with mentors.

    Cons

    There is a fair bit of political maneuvering, especially in the management layer.

    Pros

    Excellent culture and professional people, superior flex--benefits, open communication from senior management.

    Cons

    Retrenchments in the name of cost-cutting, which not only affects those who are forced to leave, but also de-motivates the others who stay back in the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be mindful of cost-cutting measures

    Pros

    solid company with constant growth and extremely professional and dedicated management and executive team - well positioned in the market thanks to strong partnerships - results driven, rewards great performers, transparent culture and decision making

    Cons

    requires a lot of dedication and personal investment in order to achieve company results and personal/professional growth, which may result in poor work/life balance - minimal salary increases once you are in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should reward better the best performers and the people who have been with McAfee for a long time, or they will have to look elsewhere for significant salary increases
